    Not simply holes, anyabody can do holes...



    Have drill, will travel!



    BITD, there was a Raleigh Competition around Cambridge that had been drilled past the point of no return. Somehow, I forget the details, some reinforcing had been done.

    Drilled calipers, however, are damn near the point of no return.

    I've got some other lightened but not drilled stuff, but no photos.
    Yes, you can have my sew-ups, but first you'll need to pry my cold, dead fingers from them.

    DD took special care to get just the right amount of drillium so it would whistle Anchors Aweigh as he rode.

    Self inflicted or acquired, or would that require further division. Must say, done well it looks rather fetching. Look forward to seeing lots of photo's.

    I suppose the illogical excess would be drillium carbon fiber . . .

    72 Cinelli SC with drillium on the brake levers, cranks, rings, RD and a couple little hits on the pedals.



    75 Bianchi Specialli with drilled front and rear brake callipers and DT shifters. I think it came from the factory with this work done as I've seen catalogues and photos of similar bikes done the same way.

    Great pics, everyone - please keep them coming (I know there's more out there).

    Scott: you're still on the list, just taking my time getting it going. After the Bike Swap I'm wide open

    LazyLegs: either or as far as I'm concerned.

    Otis: your work covers the entire spectrum, so I humbly ask for a pic or two of your vintage stuff, too!
