    That bike is completely worth saving - Suntour Cyclone derailleur, and TA triple cranks (which require a specially threaded puller BTW), are very nice. It may have a Phil Wood bottom bracket, which...

    For those using tape: Can it be used on rims that had previously been glued? Or do the rims need to be new, or completely cleaned of old glue residue? I have also heard it should only be used on Tufo...

    Lovely work. I think you could sell quite a few here at that price. I'd bite.

    I think it's factory - my Holdsworth Special has a similar top tube dent. Rides great.

    Are you looking for older tubular rims to lace to the original hubs? I have a few pairs, though I suspect they are closer to 1970 than '60.

    Can't wait to see more pics of the final build. And I have not used them, but I think that's par for the course for Campy bar end shifters. There's a reason Suntour Barcons are so revered - they...

    This year I brought a bike to sell, and though it cost $10 to do so, and it didn't sell, it did get me to the front of the line.

    The complete bikes were generally priced a little high for my...

    There's indeed more than one way to skin a cat, none of them particularly good for the cat. I've always wondered about that expression: was cat skinning a common thing back in the day?

    I'd say other than ground clearance, it's really just a matter of preference. Through a lot of trial and error I've settled on 172.5 - it just feels right, though I have 170's and 175's on a few...

    My signature bike is a high end steel bike in original paint, but with a lot of wear, dings, etc. Something I have no fear of riding. And nothing more than 8-speed, with HG cogs and a modern chain....

    If the frame is straight with no issues, that's a swell deal on an early 80's steel Ishiwata Trek, regardless of model. Nice.

    Nice find, and thanks for the catalog pages. My '73 Grand Record does indeed have close tolerances on toe clearance. Wonder if the geometry is the same?
