    Is there a definitive photo database for C&V ?

    There are always so many different requests with identifying various C&V bicycles, that I'm wondering if a comprehensive database exists somewhere. Something geared toward the frames themselves, not so much the components. Something with thumbnails showing good close ups of the lugs, bb, dropouts, etc.

    I know I have searched the web and will usually find a little of this or a little of that, often with some photo that you can't even make out the details on. Understand that I am what some might call "computer challenged", or I might set about to do it myself.

    It seems to me we have the makings well established, with various threads on head badges, drain holes, and numerous help-me-ID this bike threads scattered about.

    Have I not found the right web site yet in my various searches ? Does this already exist out there in cyberland ?

    I see that even within this forum, the membership has a vast collection of various models, and a wealth of knowledge to go with them.

    Any thoughts on this ?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    There's a super database at the BMX Museum if that's your idea of classic & vintage.

    there is an excellent Fuji site run by a member here.

    I am however against any type of self serve database as we would not get to see so many great looking and unusual bikes.
