the bike is as close to pristine as you could ever want. has a full shimano xt groupset (right down to the brakepads), and all other original components (except for the ti flite, i believe). the only thing i plan on doing is getting a wider bar- this thing is NARROW! the color is billed as "raspeberry" and it's amazing in person. since this is my "sunday driver" i opted for the 1.95 kwests, instead of knobbies, since i'll probably spend 90% of the time on pavement.
...sorry for all the pics-i love photographing bikes almost as much as riding them....

You would have to ask. They might give you what you paid for it but I don't think your going to cash in and get retirement money from a museum for a '92. If that was a '81 in that shape it might be worth its weight in silver.

You could donate it and take the deduction. If your looking to cash in post it on ebay and be willing to deal with shipping.

I picked up this 1987 SR800 Black Lightning from the original owner. He commuted on it for one year then put it in the garage. He made a couple "upgrades" like the shimano 600 tri color cranks. As well as the bar end shifters and a saddle change. He also slapped on that ****ty foam bar tape stuff. The weird thing is he changed out the aero brake levers to some Non Aero Dia Compe Gran Compes. I cant figure out why. Ill repost it when I make my changes are done. These are just my before shots

My other pick up this week was a 1992 Schiwnn Paramount PDG Series 3. This is a surprisingly light and fun bike to ride. I was a little worried about the Shimano RX100 components but they work flawlessly. This bike also has tons of details from the candy blue paint with red splatter to the internal cable routing. I couldn't recommend one these enough. The Original owner, who I got it from had these weird cheater break levers installed. Ill take these off when I get around to it. Sorry lots of photos!

Those are inline cross levers, used usually by cyclocross riders. Provides braking at a different hand position for comfort and/or convenience.

re-post from the gaspipe thread !!!!
(ps: can't get over the ****tiness of this camera that claims 18mega pixels... it's total garbage)

winter ride... since I broke my CX bike...

garlatti gas pipe / columbus EL fork / ofmega super competizione cranks / record bits / deore dx pedals / 3ttt record + itm + 105 levers / santé front brake, universal rear

looking to change the whole front-end soon, use my other universale centerpull with a bigger clearance fork, but still high end columbus.

Thanks, good information. I think they were just installed for the comfort, the original owner appeared to be pretty old and probably just wanted to have an easier hand position to use the brakes.

Wooooooo. That's pretty awesome.


I got my Christmas present a few days early... rebuilt wheels (using the original hubs) for my Raleigh DL-1

First reaction, MAN that is one nice looking bike! Next one, HEH I got the same bike! You will enjoy it I sure.

Got the SS this summer and put serious miles on it. Yours looks to be a taller frame then mine. I got lucky, it fits me perfect.

Looks like a great project for you.

Do you have a specific plan yet?

Happy New Year.

Went riding this past Sunday to Mt. Rubidoux with some friends, so I thought I post a picture of my ride overlooking the city.

It is a steel lugged 20 speed DT shifter bike.

Likely he wanted padded grips to dampen vibration to his hands, then discovered that it was a pain to route the aero brake cables under the grips - especially around the bends in the bars.

It was either 86 or 87 I think that the Cannondale R frames still had eyelets on the rear dropouts. A much more versatile bike than it should have been.

My wife's Skyway. I'm not sure of the year. Currently my daily driver to and from work since I broke a couple of spokes on my bike.

Love that blood splatter paint job, richpool. That's such a sweet bike!

I just put fenders on and some new bar tape for when the ice melts out here and I can ride again.
