    It's too nice a bike not to have a nice picture. I took liberties. Hope you like it. My 85-year-old stepfather's been riding one for 38 years.

    Marshall,

    Many thanks for the compliments. Your touch-ups look fine. I am updating it a bit, so expect more photos when I'm done. It rides like a dream.
    Beautiful lugged bikes are the best...

    Got this Ciöcc a few months back and put it together a couple of weeks ago. I swapped out the DT shifters for bar-end shifters, and haven't decided what I'm going to wrap the bars in yet. Also, I badly need a longer seatpost - I'd love to find a Ciöcc pantagraphed post. The aero Campy post is just way too short for me, so I'll be selling it.

    Oh, and these are my other bikes. The Fuji is my commuter. The Nishiki I inherited from my dad - it's a bit too small, and the sew-ups have blown out, so I don't ride it. But it's in impeccable condition, especially considering it's from 1972 (or '73?). And once I get some clinchers for it I'll ride it from time to time - before the tires blew out it rode like a dream.

    Snagged this a few hours ago... belonged to my friend who is an ace mechanic so all I have to do is change the pedals and will be swapping the bar as I want a shallower drop and will change the rear block to something tighter.



    It is a hand built Proctor built with Reynolds 853, is silver brazed, and was built right here. Running gear and crank is Cyclone Mk2, brakes are Superbe levers mated to Modolo Speedy calipers, headset is Superbe and think this bike got rebuilt with a bunch of nice cast offs. Back wheel is a Shimano 8 speed hub laced to an R500 and front is 105.

    It is stiff, light, and the new red paint might make it go a little faster and will see if I can't ride it like I stole it which I pretty much did considering the price I paid.

    Frame is 53 cm square with a wishbone stay in the rear.

    Got my touring bike out this afternoon after changing the Vx derailleurs for Cyclone Mk1... looking at a breakfast and bike tomorrow so will take the old lady out for her first real ride of the season since the friend I am riding with will be on his touring bike as well.

    Lipstick on a Pig

    Compact IMG_0393.jpg

    1977 Schwinn LeTour II. Definately not the classiest bike here on C&V. Purchased this a few weeks ago out of nostalgia (had one back in around 1980)Recently took it apart for cleaning & relube, and decided it was time for a repaint. Had the frame powdercoated (in 'lipstick red'), I rattled canned the red on the fork myself. Also put in a new BB, wider handlebars, new brake levers, new pedals, and new seat. Kinda like it with no decals, so probably leave it that way (but I did reapply the headtube badge). Rides a whole lot better than when I got it.

    hairnet... again... such a gorgeous bike.

    Got that Proctor nicely sorted out over my morning coffee and now I have that 130mm Mavic aero sitting on the bench while a Cinelli 1A took it's place.

    Must be show us your red bikes day today... took a few more pics of the new girl.

    Y stay in the rear...



    NOS Cinelli 1A and older Cinelli bars (gotta polish those up).





    It needed a head badge... my wife got me these custom made Scotchlite reflectors.



    Am looking at designing my own logo for my frames and like the idea of reflective decals and badges so that they serve a dual purpose.

    nice find sixty! Never seen such odd tapering wishbone stays, in steel.
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    I have another one of these frames, albeit in a 56cm size, that requires some frame work and the rear stay is a unique feature although I have seen it on a small number of production bicycles.

    Back in the 80's and 90's we had quite a thriving frame building community with Brad Proctor, Bob Townsend, Jim Moulden, and my parter Arvon Stacey turning out some pretty wonderful bicycles and of the three, Arvon is the only one who has continued to build frames.

    A clue to Proctor / Townsend bicycles is that if they were branded "Proctor" they were usually one off while Proctor / Townsend frames were series built and sold through High Country Sports here as Brad and Bob became partners while Jim MOulden built for them until he set off on his own to build Moulden frames and start The Hard Core Shop which is still in business to this day.

    Proctor frames are desirable in that they were well built with excellent attention to detail, tend to have very clean lines, and the material choices were always very high and believe randy will tell you his Proctor is one of his favourite bicycles.

    Like my Moulden, this Proctor road bike is a joy to ride as it is well balanced, is a great fit, and always seems to be in the right gear.

    I have some tired legs today... this bike tends to inspire.

    We are looking at a new generation of builders here with myself working with Arvon for some years and know of several other younger fellows who have decided to take up the torch.

    Just picked this up today. First vintage road bike in a while... It rides so smooth! 1986 Raleigh Technium 400. It has indexed suntour shifting on the downtube which I have barely seen on any of these. The previous owner (2nd owner) said the original owner was just a normal non-bike enthusiast family so it's unlikely that they had this added. It's in perfect shape. Not perfect as in mint but perfect as in it has just enough little chips etc. that I won't be scared to ride it and not so many that it looks bad

    Here is my 1945 Italian built bici built by my wife's uncle. His last name is Baggio, so I've named it after him. The frame and fork have been painted with decals. It will be rebuilt without the chain guard.

    Kind of curious. Do you know the manufacturer? The front-side seatpost bolt suggests Frejus or Legnano (I'm no expert though). Are you planning to put the Cambio Corsa shifter back on it? Looks like it might have been a fairly valuable bike in its original livery.

    1955 Raleigh Lenton, Reg Harris Road Model.











    Had the matching toe straps and swapped out the rack for a Carradice bag, swapped the Lycette from my '54 (it got the Wright's W35).

    I love riding this bicycle, it is so smooth and comfortable and the hum of those Dunlops on the road is like nothing else.

    Yes the Cambio Corsa will be on the bike. No manufacturer. Its a one of. Built by Aldo Baggio when he lived in Italy.

    Neat bike. Any close ups on the bars, stem, brakes, rims and crank?

    What city in Italy was it made?
