^ 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.

~ "I like the way the brake cables come out of the top of the levers and loop around to the brake calipers!...I like those downtube shifters too!...No no no, don't take 'em off, don't take 'em off,...leave 'em on, leave 'em on! - Thats right baby!!

^ 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?
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.

Bought this a couple of months back, didn't really want it but for £130 just had to take it.
