    This is my first road bike. It's a Spalding RE which I bought this at a junk bike sale for $20. I have no idea what year it is. I can't find much info on it.

    I just put some new tires on it and cleaned it up. It rides great. It still needs some odds and ends (brakes and chain suck) but other than that its really fun bike. I bought it for my 2 mile work commute without worrying about someone stealing it.

    Slowly but surely, I have been restoring content and in checking discovered I had posted close to 2000 images here and although I will not be restoring all of those do have some favourites...

    1954 Raleigh Sports 700c club conversion

    Where else would you find a British bike ?

    This is my latest acquisition, and the most appropriate for this thread. 1971 Mercian Olympic, whose frame underwent repair and complete restoration and repaint by Mercian last year:

    This was my first real road bike...wish I still had it...loved that bike! I think mine was an '81 or '82. I donated it to the co-op (where I now volunteer) back in '88!!

    Seat posts come in lengths of 350mm - 410mm these days. A real blessing to those with special fit considerations.

    Yesterday was all for English bikes and today I worked on an old French lady that I had given to my step son 4 years ago when he was 17 and he has been riding this bike hard.

    Came to me last week with a loose bottom bracket, it was stuck on one gear, and I was quite happy to see that the wheels I installed were still holding true although those tyres were looking pretty worn.

    Swapped the cottered crank out for a Shimano Exage and replaced the Simplex Prestige with Suntour half ratchets, a Spirt front d, and an Honour rear d as he plans to ride through winter and who wants to subject a nicer V series derailleur to that ?



    And if this bike is going to see winter it needed fenders and installed some nice cross tyres as we have yet to see snow and will then toss on some Nokain winter tyres.

    Amazing how fenders can transform a bicycle...



    He loves this bike... maybe he will also keep it for 50 or 60 years.

    My 1971 Schwinn Super Sport, finally got around to restoring it, just about finished. I got this bike as a teenager and it sat for about the last 20 years. I put the chain on right after I took these pictures. I'm taking out into the daylight for the first time in decades tomorrow morning for a short ride to see how it is.

    Speaking of Ross..

    I ran across a very nice 1984ish Ross Signature 290s in a garage sale this weekend. I bought it from the original owner. It has the basic shimano gruppo, and provides a clyde like me a nimble and comfortable ride. small Ross Signature 2.jpg
