    That's awesome, Randy.

    I'd certainly noticed the 'and Son' on the decals...but haven't hear much at all about him!

    Very cool.

    Long and steady.

    Fork blades are *all* curve.

    So many neat details, from that to the chainring, the funky saddle to the frame bag, the light...everything about this is awesome.

    I'll keep an eye on that seat cluster area as the bike sees use.

    Thanks for the offer, but if it's real rough and missing pieces...I think I'll pass. The one I have is pretty mint, which is why I feel motivated to find a match if possible.

    - the Apollo Imperial (it's pretty, and kinda cool to have the 'nice' Apollo, but I don't ride it often and not attached)

    It's a favourite! Central City/Red Racer brews some good beer.

    So, I guess Mike Mulholland kept up that tradition!

    This will definitely be a fast-but-short-ride bike, sunny days and smooth surfaces - but I'll see what I can squeeze in there.

    Not sure about the ST angle. I could try to suss it out...the bike is generally quite steep (though quite a low BB).

    Something going on there geo-wise.

    20mm rims - not terribly wide.

    DING DING DING.

    It's actually not complicated, even if the post is wordy.

    Looking around since, I've discovered that very few other derailleurs have this design feature - unsuitable...

    ISO Dura Ace 7400-7403 braze-on FD in nice shape.

    Or maybe a late 80s/early 90s braze-on Campy Athena/Chorus/Record? Matching up with DA crankset...but the rest is Chorus/Record 8sp.

    Tinkering,...

    Thanks for your comment.

    The cable is not hooked up at the moment - but it does clear the 23mm Schwalbe tire when it is. Not by much, though - good observation, as the rest would be pretty much...

    Hm. Even a Dura Ace 7400 unit looks as though it doesn't extend to the rear/inside of the FD tab/seat tube the way the tricolor derailleur I have on there now does...in pictures on the internet, at...

    Very true - I hadn't thought of that, but could work.

    This particular FD was NOS 48 hours ago - I took the price sticker off then. So I'm into exploring other options before modifying this one.

    So, a conundrum has arisen in my recent Cyclops build.

    The bike has a very tight wheelbase (~97.5cm), with short chainstays (~39.5cm) - tight enough that the rear tire must be deflated to fit the...

    You mentioned mostly wanting to go lower *in the drops* yes?

    As the Nomad notes, both pictured bikes have seemingly quite shallow drop bars. Try a Cinelli Campione del Mondo, a...

    My purple one here was custom built for a fellow named Jacob Astin, as I might or might not have mentioned somewhere in this thread.

    I have no idea, but one of those would look très cool on this bike. Without a doubt.

    Yes - devinfan pretty much nailed it. To fill in the detail just a bit, Mulholland often repainted other, non-Cyclops bikes - and slapped on Cyclops decals while at it. So there are many...

    Yikes! :eek:

    I've only ridden in snow once in the past year now that I live in Vancouver rather than Montréal. No pics to rival yours here.

    Yeah - I'm really drawn to many of the older examples I've seen over the years. Your '81 pista ranks among my favourites, and it would be very cool to ride a Marinoni built in the 1970s or early...
