    NZ 70s/80s roadbike fan

    Hello there. I'm Jeff from Hamilton, New Zealand. There are nine bikes or frames in the garage, but still enough room a couple more - and my wife's car! Found bikeforms.net when I was browsing for info on a new acquisition: a 70s baby blue Zeus professional. This is a great site, and a great resource, thanks.
    Now, I think this is the bit where I brag about my bikes....an '84 Pinarello Treviso with a full NR set, bought for USD70. A mid 80s O'Brien 753 (made in NZ by a very good framebuilder) with supersmooth Cyclone drivetrain and campag record C brakes (I think). A late '70s 531 Raleigh Team Rapide with NR gear and Modolo brakes that looks way better than it rides. The newly found Zeus pro (Super Vitus 971, with Zeus criterium and Fiamme stem and bars). Also a pink Columbus Abeni (Aussie framebuilder) with an immaculate set of GS, and a few frames (80s Terry Dolan, '60s JOCO and one of those ribbed Bernardis that's finished appalingly). Still on the hunt for an immaculate ALAN, a 70s Peugeot, and maybe a real Worksop Team Raleigh. See ya - Jeff!
