    Since I sold my old Schwinn LeTour, the only American Iron I have left is this beat up old Ross Frame, not sure just what type of bike it was, but it had bottle boss', canti brakes...lugged frame. Not a BAD frame (but stamped dropouts), but much abused and then neglected, STILL trying to get the fixed BB cup out, bearings were TOAST! Long term rebuild.

    My Bontrager Privateer built in California, but I regrettably sold when I went all roadie.

    heres my 85 trek 520 (as far as i can tell it didnt have any decals stating it) really ugly paint so i did black and it looks okay but a fun bike to ride with a 55/29 crankset and 501 tubes it didnt have much for setting up center pulls so i got creative with the little surly hangers

    Cool bike. I've thought about using a Surly hanger on the front like that but never have. Works fine, I take it? The only downside I can see is you get a bit of angle on the cable, more or less depending on the stem length. So if the stem is longer the caliper pull won't be in the right plane, if you follow me. In your example with a shortish stem and long head tube, the angle is pretty slight so I'm sure it's fine.

    What RD is that? It looks pretty robust.

    Wish I was farther along with this project..... but making sure I do this one as correctly as I can, so I'm taking my time on it.....

    1972 Line Seeker CF race bike. Frameset #22 of three hundred built by the designer at his house.
    Still fixing up the original brake levers and handlebar, then will be looking for replacement, period correct, sewup rims and sewup tires. Also looking for a better saddle. Most likely will settle for a new Ti Brooks Swift or Swallow if I cannot find a Cool Gear/Jacobs saddle in good condition....but then the Cool Gears aren't that pretty....
    This CF bike is earlier than the Exxon Graftek (which was based on this bike) from around 1974 and most likely earlier than the Mossbergs from 1973....which could make it the earliest production CF bikes in the US, and/or the world.

    My other American made bike (to be)..... Also a project in progress

    A mid 80's(?) Medici "Aerodynamic" that I just got from "catnap". Confirmed to by Medici builder, Mike Howard to have been custom built by him. Lugwork and other details do match up with known, similar Medici Frames. Supposedly built with Tange Prestige tubing.
    Already started the component harvest for it. Have to make decisions on the paintjob and decals, hopefully within the year. An exciting build with many possibilities.

    Landshark-A '92 road bike pictured here. One of three in the accummulation/collection. The others are a road frame (wall hanger due to rust) and a mountain bike.


    Eisentraut-One of two '75's in the same color. A 57 and a 59.


    Schwinn Paramount-A P15-9 from '74 with a CycleArt repaint.


    Wizard-From 1975 and farther along than this now. Soon to be finished. The first weekend of nasty weather will find me in the shop doing final cleaning of brake parts.


    Turner-Decidedly not C&V, but made in the USA in 2007. Great fun to ride and fun to look at the details.


    Not shown is a 1980ish Medici Pro Strada frame that is awaiting further instructions.....

    By request, Landshark MTB pics-had to dig for them....







    Found some pics of the other RoadShark as well, prior to stripping down. Plus the offending rust.

    Just a thought.

    Build enough frames and folks may well come to similar conclusions about the requirements for a great riding bicycle.

    yeah brakes worked no problem! and you cant tell but with the aero routing the cable housing tended to push the hanger to one side a bit but again not really enough to make a difference and ive tried to set up center pulls the same way one bikes that had headsets with high stack and shorter steer tubes but that VO stem is the only one ive had luck with

    ooh and the rear derailleur is a microshift something or other i couldnt find it anywhere in the US market so i got it from ebay UK but it shifted great with the dia compe ENE ratcheting levers!

    Okay, I have to say it, there are some ugly bikes in this thread. Riders, for sure, and I'm sure they're a lot of fun to ride (which is good!) but not easy on my eyes. I guess I'm a bit of a curmudgeon that way.

    Thanks for the compliment! Chris made it for me in 1983. After wearing out the original Campy SR gear, I put on the Centaur group in the photo.

    The wheels are Zipp VcLc rims laced to Record hubs.

    You are not alone.

    But to avoid insulting anyone I will not say which multi-colored, low-spoke-count, modern-style CF or quasi-CF frame styled, threadless-stem'ed bikes are the ugly ones.
    Real cyclists use toe clips.
