    C&A no-name bike pics

    Anyone riding either a no-name bike or one made by a company that's out of business?

    Mine was made by a company called BCA - not the one that's currently making bikes, I called and read them the serial number, they said "nope, not ours".



    18-speed MTB converted to a commuter/touring bike. (The knobbies are back on now for the winter.)

    Yes, I have an early 80's SR sports tourer. It's quite a mystery. The most prevalent opinion is that it was made by Sakai Ringyo-- the folks that make components-- but there's also some evidence of SRs being made in California and Mexico, although they may be different makers with the same name. Mine clearly says it's Japanese. I like it a lot... it has pretty arabesque components on it.

    mid-to-late 80's Palo Alto. Made by Italian contract frame builder Biemazetta (BMZ) for Palo Alto bikes. The bike shop is still in business, but the frames are a thing of the past. I found this frameset in the the posession of an acquaintence, bought it, and built it up with modern 10 speed Campy. I love it.

    That bike is absolutely gorgeous. What kind of brakes are those?

    bigbossman, I forgot about this bike! This* is the coolest no badged bike I've seen. There's a thread asking for photos right now of naked bikes. Go post it here:

    Have you de-badged your road bike?

    Did this used to have different water bottles on it? It's such a pretty, pretty bike.

    Thank you - I'm very, very pleased with how it came out. Those are Campagnolo Veloce calipers. The group set is mostly Centaur, with the exception of the Veloce brakes, BB, and FD.

    Thank you. I've gone ahead and cross-posted.

    I've had all kinds of water bottles on it. The matching red anodized one's are for show and leisurely rides, as they are a b!tch to drink from while hammering along. Mostly, I use white plastic bottles, as shown in these pics:
