    Please post pictures of C&V Track/Pursuit bikes.

    Tonight has not gone well. My computer has gone haywire, crashed and deleted all the files I had open at the time of the crash. I lost an essay and fifty pages of a unit plan I was having reviewed tomorrow for school. It's going to be a long night as I reconstruct it as best I can. I'd appreciate it if you guys would post some awesome old track bikes and pursuit-type bikes for me to ogle as motivational fodder.

    I'll start:

    Sorry to hear about the lost assignments.

    We're you using a Mac by any chance?

    If so, go to Time Capsule and all will be waiting for you.

    ...and hate to break it to you, but this place is the biggest time waster I've ever witnessed.

    Nope, I was on a PC*. I am perfectly aware of how much of a time-suck forums can be. I'm restricting myself to this thread though, so I hope it's good.

    *I checked my backups, which run once a week. I recovered about three pages because I just started in earnest the morning after the last backup apparently...

    That's a nice Masi. I'd want a fancier crankset if it were mine.

    Very cool Centurion. Is that original paint?

    Here's one:

    That Panasonic has ridiculous handlebars!

    25+ pages reproduced so far. The typing doesn't take long, making new handouts does...

    Gomango is right though, these forums eat time like no tomorrow, but they're usualy interesting to read and usually i learn stuff or see cool pictures..

    This is my favorite one, it's pure sex....., needs a new saddle and stem though but still gorgeous colorway:

    By now you're prolly swilling so much caffine into your bloodstream everything is a jittery blur, but here's the best I can do:

    My Cyclops doesn't have a sloping top tube, just angles tighter than a frog's ass. I really need a drive side shot...sorry.

    Scooper, it's been well documented. I LOVE your Paramount. If I had the means I'd try to buy it or one like it. It's simply gorgeous.

    And thanks guys, by 5am today I had retyped about 65 pages of my unit plan. I took it in for review with my professor and found that I had more done than anyone else in my session. I felt pretty good, if exhausted.
