    My friend has a 1977 Austro Daimler Superleicht, full NR that was barely used. I bought it off of him and rode it at L'Eroica 2011, but the bike was a bit too small. SO I sold it back to him.

    Thanks.

    That bike was a bit of a mutt. A trek carbon frame, one of the old aluminum lugged and glued ones, and a mix of tricolor Ultegra and DA. Yes, those are the first generation Ultegra sti...

    If you want to do some dirt, here is a strava ride that connects to the SART. Some 28mm tires and a 34x25 should do the trick.

    I should have taken a picture. The packing job was a masterpiece of Tetris-like packing. The Ford Grand Cmax has 3 rows of seating and is a bit longer than the version available in the US. We each...
