    Titan from the 80's I believe? From what I've learned about Titan frames, they were manufactured in Italy, but marketed in Switzerland. I junked the fork it came with and mated it w/ an old Italvega fork I had stashed away for years. Due to a knee injury & a technical problem, it's hardly seen any road. So far, the lower end loves this saddle...!




    Early 80's Superissimo w/ a mix of Campy parts. Cobalto brakes ~ Record: seatpost, hubs, 8-sp ergo, F & R derailleurs ~ SR headset ~ Chorus crank ~ World's pedals. I'm thinking about putting this one back to all NR or SR cmpnts...?

    1973 Schwinn World Voyageur I scored at the LBS. It's pretty much new. Wrong seat, newer 1980s tires, missing the toe clips and straps. - Bummer that it is too small for me.

    1986 Miyata 912. Picked it up for $150. Replaced the big butt seat that came with it and replaced the 1990's Miami Vice Pink and Purple bar tape. Still need to clean off the brushed on black from the original pink head tube. Sorry for the crap cell phone pic. I'll post a better one when I get the paint taken care of. I though these were all originally Shimano but its got campy cranks.

    There is some really nice hardware in this thread!

    My own humble offering (shown elsewhere in BF once or twice):







    Don't ask what year it is. Best guess is late-'75 to mid-'77:

    My Kuwahara Cascade "Expedition" bike... tweaked out a few things today and started by rebuilding the 6 speed uniglide with new cogs, changed my crank to a half step / granny, and replaced my Cyclone rear d with a SRAM X5 as it will handle the 14-30 in the back and the 28/48/52 up front without flinching.

    The half step set up is wonderful as when I am in the middle chain ring and middle of the cassette I am in my happy cruising place, can shift down into the 48/30 for a 41 gear inch low or go the other way and get an 88 gear inch high (with great chain line) and the 52 gives a lovely half step with 8% - 9% changes and brings the top gear up to 95 gear inches.

    The 28 takes me all the way down to a 24 gear inch low.

    So you grabbed that bike to buy lunch? I sure wish I knew which subject to connect to which verb.

    Picked this up on tuesday.

    It looked like this-



    Found this stem for $5 with no bar clamp hardware.



    A free bolt from my LBS and a $.60 nut and now it looks like this-



    Took out the Fizik gel pad things under the tape and rewrapped. New tape on the way unless I can figure out how to clean this existing tape up.

    This is a damn nice bike.

    Agreed.

    Really nice lines only improved by the prompt removal of a hideous stem.

    That's the ticket.

    A little rewrapping with black Fizik Microtex and you've got a grand slam.

    How's she ride?

    Schwinn Passage Web.jpgSchwinn Passage I found at a Pawnshop . Not Midnight Blue, but Imperial Rose , like a Voyageur for that year . From the setup and all, I'd guess this was a cyclocross veteran, with the scars to prove it . Someone put a stem shifter on it after apparently breaking off the right downtube braze-on, but left the left braze=on and shifter intact. I found an old simplex downtube shifter set and replaced until I can rebraze the right downtube shifter . Seems to have step and a half plus granny gearing. Columbus Tenax tubing is great, I had it on my old Prelude as well . It seems to have a higher bottom bracket than lots of touring bikes, but that works well here in the Midwest . I've already replaced the bars, with the brakes held on by electrical tape. I had an extra set of Sakae Road Champion Maes Bars and added them to the mix. Test ride from yesterday looks very promising

    Yeah, the stem swap was a no brainer. It's damn low as it is, and I can't bring myself to raise it (yeah, I'm vain, what of it?). I've been gaining a lot of flexibility in my hips, so I guess I've earned it.

    Hmm, black tape? All my other bikes have black tape, I kind of like the yellow. Orrrr black tape and yellow housings? Hmm.

    This bike rides really well, it's a criterium frame, so the back end is nice and stiff, but the front is amazingly supple. I'm a bigger guy at 6' 205, so the forks [and stem!] flexing while braking hard took a little getting used to. I have a 1" carbon fork with threadless headset and stem just laying around, waiting to be mounted on something, so I thought about that swap, but losing the matching fork was a dealbreaker for me. I'm already getting used to the flex. I have a feeling the stem is the big offender here, might be time for something a little stiffer but with the classic look- like a cinelli XA, instead.

    I like the ride way better than my carbon stayed/ carbon forked aluminum mountain cycle. Every steel bike I'd ridden in anger to date has been too flexy down low, but that's not the case with this one.

    I say leave it! That is one beautiful Bike.
