My '88 Kuwahara Shasta... will likely have a new home tomorrow as my nephew was looking for an all rounder that would handle his commute as well as a bike that can handle some serious trekking and towing of the wee bairns.

Just refitted it with a bunch of sweet DX parts and upgraded to an 8 speed cassette... it rolls out better than it did when it was new (originally fitted with Exage 6 speed).







My '66 Moulton will have to pick up the slack and I have been riding that as my commuter / all rounder since I picked it up.

1988 Trek 2300 carbon/aluminum with Shiman 600 Ultegra tricolor group
Planning on bringing it back to life with period correct parts to replace what the previous owner changed.

Not usually a fan of MOLDED carbon bikes, so this I reall like. Love the way it retains the look of a lugged frame, just awesome.

Pinarello Montello SL, factory chromed, never painted. The geometry is slightly different than a 'standard' Montello, slightly longer wheelbase overall. Instead of Columbus SLX, this Montello was built with Columbus SL.

I have built it up with Dura-Ace 7700 components, currently missing aero levers (I want Dura-Ace 7402 levers). I also want a Dura-Ace 7410 Headset, 7700 seatpost and a set of 7700 hubs to complete the build. Probably will take me another 6 months of acquiring parts until it is done. I will wrap the bars with white leather when I get some aero levers mounted. Built it up with some temporary parts so I could enjoy the summer with it, rides like a dream, let me emphasize that ... a dream.

Zunow Di Picce

Catnap's posts on Zunows are to blame for putting this maker on my radar. Purchased from a LBS...walked in and could not stop looking at it. Took a while to decide if I even liked the way that it looked. Test ride sealed the deal. More pics after it is tuned up.

Pinarello

ahuynh: the Pinarello is way too sexy. If you ever tire of that limited edition Brooks saddle let me know.

Hah, thanks! I am a bit of a Brooks fanboy and had this saddle for a while since I bought it, but finally a build came along that would work great with a white B15 Swallow, so I don't think I will tire of it anytime soon. My Team Pro and Swift on my other bikes have lasted me for years now.

I'm holding on to a Team Pro Alpe d'Huez (honey) and trying to decide if I take it out of the box or put it on one of two bikes - a red Dolan Cougar or a green Metcalfe - along with matching leather bar tape.

I haven't seen any Viscount Aerospaces here yet, so here's one I recently restored to use as my weekend rider. 1974 Aerospace G.P., mostly stock. It's my first restore.

That's very nice. Working on one myself, just need to get things started. Mainly by freeing the seatpost. Is that the Yamaha replacement fork?

Nope, 3rd generation aluminum "death fork". I'm not too worried about using it, I believe most of the failures occurred with the 1st Gen. The 3rd gen. has a few structural changes making it quite a bit stronger. There's actually a great discussion on the death fork on the Viscount/Lambert post over at the CTC forums. If I wasn't on my phone I would post the link.
