    This one cleaned up nicely! Unknow Poggio brand, Professionel-model. I think made in Belgium. Full Shimano 600 group. 3T seatpost, San Marco Gi-Lux 311 saddle. Mavic fluted stem and "Comte de Coucy" bars. Mavic rims, Clément Super Codor tubes.

    1989 (I think) Panasonic Sport 500 that was heavily hipster-ized before I got it:



    I forget what year this this Traveler was:



    This Traveler was an '88:



    A SUPER small Raleigh triple:



    A 75-ish Centurion Le Mans RS. I temporarily had the modern bars/levers on it as I was considering having it powder coated and building up an modern-ish bike with it but it was a hair too small.



    A G LaPierre that I haven't researched the date on yet but I'm guessing 1968-1972. The previous owner pulled the shifters and derailleurs and made a makeshift single speed. It came with the original saddle and tool bag, but the saddle is in VERY poor condition. I can't believe how light weight this thing is.



    Bridgestone MB 6 from 1990, I believe:



    1998 Klein Pulse Comp

    I hate Shamals. They look cool but are heavy and completely useless when it is windy out. Since it has been insanely windy the past few days, I switched out the Shamals for some Zondas on my Merckx. It doesn't look as "classic" but they are far more useful (and lighter).

    It was hot on SA, it's hot here. Honestly, it doesn't look bad, dark wheels were around back in the day too, it looks a little out of place with the labels, but the pic is a little blown out so it's not that noticeable. In person, the branding might pop a little more, but in these pics? Fuggheddaboudid.

    I'm "glyph" over there

    Where have you been all my life Poggio?

    Never heard of the brand, but I would like to see more.

    Thread worthy I would say.

    Congrats!

    Btw If you find another Poggio like this one, please let me know.

    No fan of Shamals either.

    Nice Merckx. Looks great per normal for your bicycles.

    I still want a pair of shamal no manner what people say I've ridden my dads and didn't find them too bad.

    I vote using some tires with a tan sidewall on the Merckx. It will make the black wheels blend in better, or at least it did on my tecno.

    Nothing wrong with Shamals per say, but I have had awful luck with the rims developing hops faster than I think they should.

    But I am a big boy nowadays, so that may well have something to do with it.

    Lighter each week though.

    Thank you for these fabulous pictures.

    Your blog is a Colnago museum on the web.

    Highly recommended for Italian racing bike fans and certainly worthy of a thread all its own.

    Thank you for posting.

    Oh yeah, I'd love to do that ride someday in Paris!

    ...or is it just outside Paris?

    I wouldn't have to ask my wife twice for that trip.

    Just need a wheelset and she's ready to hit the road.

    The id I asked you about was for another forum member and he was successful with your help.

    Thanks again for the incredible pics from France and your blog.

    Agreed.

    One of the problems with me trying so many bicycles is the simple fact I sell some I shouldn't.

    My Master was a spitting image of this beauty, although I had black bar tape.

    Luckily I sold it to a friend in our riding group, so I have visitation rights.

    Here's another look at the Master on Saarf's blog.

    Man is his site loaded with beautiful bicycles or what?

    Miyata 1000LT that I got the other day (saved from being thrown in the garbage ), I thought it was about a 1992-1993 era model, however the colour was throwing me off since it seemed to match the 1994 edition in the catalogs.
    Closer inspection of the catalog from 1994 however shows that Miyata used a Deore LX group, not the DX, and the stock rear rack (still on it) is a different model.
    I have found photos online of what appears to be the exact same model, with the same colouring, decals and stock parts that specify it is a 1990 model - this goes along with the Shimano date stamps that indicate the parts where made in the fall of 1989... So, unless there's a Miyata expert around that can indicate otherwise - I'm fairly confident now that it is from 1990, even though it is not pictured in the 1990 catalog.

    It was covered in dirt and spiders when I got it and the seat, tires and grips where literally rotting off of it:


    It appears to have all of the original components - Shimano Deore DX grouping, MT-60 Biopace, etc.
    I've cleaned it up and replaced the consumables in this photo (brake pads, all cables, chain, grips, tires, etc.) but I've also replaced the brake levers with some Tektro levers because I prefer to route the brake cables under the wrapping.

    It needs a new cassette and possibly new sprockets on the crank and a little more detailing, but this is how it looked after about 12 hours of work:


    I should have waited to post these until I finished cleaning it up. I have since replaced the cassette and started to clean and polish all of the bare metal parts back to their original shine... I'll post the completed product when it sparkles like near-new.
    This bicycle is easily the nicest and lightest one I have ever owned, I couldn't help showing it off. This is going to be a great summer with this treasure to ride around on!

    I could be wrong, but I'm sure paganini ,s a Belgian brand with an Italian sounding name, I've seen a few for sale there

    1986 Schwinn Tempo

    Since my ancient gumwalls finally disintegrated on it, here's my '86 Schwinn Tempo w/the full-disco white tires I've been holding for it (as requested by rcardr):

    Tempo1.jpgI've been riding this bike between 150 - 200 miles/month since I got it, so those tires aren't going to stay so white for very long.
    Tempo2.jpgLove my rock-hard Unicanitor. I've never been comfortable on a squishy seat, so it's either this or a Brooks. Sunbathing teenaged daughter and vintage KZ1100 in background are equally lovable.
    tempo3.jpgLong caged Deore rd transplant enabled me to use an Atom freewheel w/a mondo 32 tooth cog for getting up those local hills. (My ride home from work nets me almost 1000 ft elevation in 4 miles - so it was either that or a triple up front.) Enormous plastic and aluminum (Huret?) pie plate came with the bike, as did unidentifiable oddball rim w/a Norman hub, probably from the previous owner's parts bin. Basically, everything about that rear wheel is goofy enough to make a vintage Schwinn purist get the vapors. Yes, one day I'll trim that derailleur cable. One day.
    Tempo4.jpgBio-Pace! Bio-Pace! Bio-Pace! With Original Sticker! AS SEEN ON CRAIGSLIST!
    Tempo5.jpgOK, time go and mess up those virginal white CSTs.
