    The Raleigh on its way to get shorter cranks installed. Not impossible to shoehorn a bike into a Mustang, just annoying. . . .

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums. I just recently decided to get my old Fuji back on the road. It was a high-school graduation present in 1972 and hadn't been ridden in about 30 years. I dug it out of the basement and spent about a week cleaning and greasing and oiling and cleaning and shining it up. And did I mention cleaning? Little wonder the poor thing hadn't been shifting well when I tossed it in storage

    It's all original except the tires - those were too far gone to save. It's a 25" frame and is a little too big for me but I make it work. May I present my 1972 Fuji S10-S Special Road Racer:

    Since I need to avoid standing and mashing those pedals (back issues) I thought that swapping the double Sugino for an Ultegra 6500 triple and an Ultegra GS rear d (thanks David !) was a good idea.

    It is still friction shifted but whenever I track down a pair of Ultegra wheels I'll add indexed dt shifters... oddly enough the pairing of the Campagnolo and Shimano did not cause the end of the world as we know it but then, the bike is a mix of everything I find good in the world.

    Thanks! You have no idea how glad I am I found this place! I've been getting ready to try and adjust the front derailleur on this bike and stumbled across the posts on cross chaining, which I do all the time . Hey, it's got 10 gears, I'm gonna use them ALL! No, really, I thought it was a flaw in my setup. I'm learning.

    All cleaned up!

    I purchased the KIA on craigslist for $100. It was all rusty but now it looks new again.

    Made in Korea. 1896

    I'm normally not into cream tire, but that looks great Oddjob2!

    About to look for fenders, the SKS have a nice low profile. decisions...

    Another summer project, 1983 Guido Messina. Like the Lejeune, I bought the frame here on BF.

    is 1993 too young? Got this new and rode the wheels off it as a younger man. Pulled it out of the shed today and not being ridden for near on 15 years it is a bit worse for wear. It really needs a new drive train, tyres and tape. Have to decide if I stump up for that or to put that money into sometime that suits me better as a middle aged man.





    Regards,

    Probikekit.com is a good site for buying the essentials like bar tape, tyres, cables and chains, their prices are quite good and the shipping is quick. I'd suggest you swap in a shorter stem with a bit of a rise to it and put some miles on the bike, it looks like it is adequately equipped, you just need to adjust the fit a bit.

    Kroozer, nice bikes! The dock looks a little wet - did you have to retrieve one of the bikes after the photo session?

    Just picked up this 1983 Specialized Expedition up from the original owner a couple days back. New tires, tape, and brake hoods so far. I'll add more photos as she progresses, hunting for the right Brooks saddle now...

    Not sure if I can call this a "ride" at the moment, it's in bits, but here's my Peugeot Orient Express. Not sure on the year, all I know is it's from before '86 on account of it having the lugged fork as opposed to the unicrown one.

    I'm aware that I've committed a great heresy by repainting it, but both the original gold paint and the blue spray-bomb someone had done over the top before I got it were in such bad condition that rust was taking hold in a big way. I set about it with a paint scraper and some sandpaper, and stripped back as much as I could before I applied Hammerite anti-rust, then sprayed the colour over the top.

    Photo0343.jpg

    The fork has since been lacquered like the frame to protect that lovely blue finish, and it's going to sit around for a few months while I'm back at university. I'll most likely build it back up at christmas.

    Supercycle

    Hi Gals and Gents, first post here.

    Here's a 197? Supercycle my grandfather gave me out of one of his sheds, where it previously sat for many years. First photo is how I got it a few weeks ago.

    Second photo is what it looks like after a few days of fiddling. Generous cleaning, feather original paint, 3 coats of acrylic enamel clear, repaint galvanised clips etc. I was going to spray weld the crank bearing seats and re-turn, but I actually wanted to ride it this year...

    ^^Wow, nice work sprucing that one up! Looks so classy.

    Nothing really new about my Univega, I just took a picture on my morning commute yesterday that I really like.

    Very nice Supercycle. Since it's a rebranded Raleigh you can look up the serial number to find out the year it is made.
