Can you smell those apple blossoms ?

Finally installed the new Pendle bag I picked up at Christmas... it matches up so nicely.

WildGeek, you should get some sort of prize for best backdrop. Then again, the backdrop is the prize I guess.

Nice bike. Your chain looks a couple links short to me.

Well it took a while but I finally found this 1988 Cannondale SR500 Team Crest in my size. Its 100% stock and besides a few scratches on the fork in pretty good condition! Ill replace the tires and bar tape then get out and take some real photos.

My vintage collection so far.... not including my new bikes.....

1972 CCM Turismo (Before and after)
1973-74 Peugeot (Before, just starting)
1948 CCM Rambler Roadster (Before and after, added leather bar tape and wood plugs but no pics yet)

Lots more photos of all the bikes, plus some flipped if anyone is interested. I didn't want to post too many because I think I have posted some of these before on this thread

Classic Bridgestone Kabuki Diamond track bike with my test / spare wheels... hoping I have some MA40 hoops to lace up by next week.

Built it with a bunch of spare bits I had kicking around... Cyclone crank, Gran Compe levers, Modolo brake, Dura Ace pedals, Sakae rando bars, GB stem.



From what I know the brazed model is rarer than the lugged version of this bike and was a special order model from Bridgestone.

I was looking back around a big bend (looking for the slower rider we were with) and went into the shoulder a bit. There was a big divot in the shoulder and that taco'd the forks and sent me flying into the grassy ditch. No serious injuries just small cuts and a bruised ego.

The senior bike in my collection, a 1950 Raleigh Sports that I purchased from the original owner.

Today it got new boots, I had built these for another Raleigh and used vintage Mavic 650A rims (new old stock) laced to 70's era hubs, the 1950 hubs will get rebuilt with the same rims as I have two more sets of these. I also sourced a nearly NOS 1950's crankset that I will swap in as the non drive crank is a little bent and the new crank is all shiny and new looking.

The Delta cruisers are wonderful... the bike eats up bad roads like they are not there.







Raleigh Special bars came stock on the bike, the grips were replaced in 1951 (according to the owner).



British made dyna hub... have yet to test it.

I have a 33 inch riding inseam and fit on my Moulton is the same as my 55cm road bike... there is a lot of room for a taller rider here.

1989 Kestrel 200SC.

It's a size too big for me, so I had to cut the seatpost and shorten the reach of the stem.

My friend came by today and took the Moulton for a ride... said it was the most amazing bike he had ever ridden even though he could not handle the extra reach I have.

After that I went out to the shop and went to the tickle trunk and fitted a Sugino Competition crank after singulating it to bump the gearing a smidge... will install a 14 tooth cog in the rear (as soon as I get one) to replace the 15 and then the gearing range will be closer to that of my road bike. The Sugino also looks more appropriate to the bicycle than the Shimano LX, is lighter, and a little more badass.

Now I just need to find the right silver seatpost, fit a leather saddle, and mebbe install some Shimano 600 pedals to give it some extra vintage touches.
