^ Back when I had it built for me I was rolling in dough, so I specced all that chrome :) I shoulda had them do the headlugs, too!
But you're right; I rarely see any with much more than a chromed driveside chainstay, or a fork crown here and there.
197? Nishiki Road Compe - will probably be retired soon.
My resto-mod 1989 Panasonic DX 2000
Took these this morning when I got to work. '85 Centurian Elite RS w/ Araya 'red labels'
Not really a stable. More like a stall or two.
^ For the time being, it is - because of that, I've been doing most of my riding this summer with it. I'm currently trolling Ebay with the intention of locating a few 28t cogged Reginas or Everests. It's time to admit my knees aren't what they were and save the "corncobs" for the relatively flat rides :)
Still my only bike (sniff), owned since it was new. '73 Raleigh RRA w/full Campy NR, SR derailleurs, Simplex retrofriction shifters, Modolo death stem and bars, original Brooks Pro. Most parts came from the International I had at the time.
Can't find too much information about this model of technium. It's my second bike and its pretty fun to ride. Thoughts?
^ Well, compared to many of the bikes in this thread (and in C&V), not sure about mighty fine, but I've always liked it. I do have 2 sets of wheels for it, does that count?:lol:
Team Telekom bike ridden by former pro Olaf Ludwig, it is a Corsa Extra frame with a Leader fork, probably because Ludwig was a sprinter
Another Corsa Extra but in the tutti frutti team paint
Here's my Cilo with Columbus Aelle/Tretubi tubeset. I bought it from a buddy while I was in high school in ~1987-88. It originally had all 600EX components and was a lighter blue. I got it resprayed after an RD failure ripped apart the rear wheel and dropout in the early 90s sometime. Decals are from cyclomundo. This is the exact mishmash of components I had on it since college; the front wheel and brakes are original though. I finally glued on the tires and wrapped the bars this weekend.
Rode it for the first time since ~1998 today. Apparently my legs have shrunk - I ended up making a bunch of stops to mess with seat height/position/angle, handlebar angle, etc. After riding my Bianchi Volpe and MTBs, this thing felt like a rocket, with telepathic handling. By the end of my 22 mile ride, I felt comfortable on it again.
84' Fuji del REY
Bought this a couple of months back, didn't really want it but for £130 just had to take it.
^thanks! it looks pretty good. whats the length on your bike?
