    The front derailleurs alone are $100 a pop. I would value them at $200 each. I sold a '62 Continental last year for $200. It wasnt completely original. Probably should have asked more.

    That's a really nice bike. I had a Mirage Sport of the same vintage, one of the nicest bikes I've ridden. Enjoy it.

    And destroy all the bearings in short order. And have the 30 year old tubulars on the Trek either blow out or roll off the rims. Great advice :rolleyes:[/QUOTE]

    Heck, I have 40 year old steel rimmed 27 x 1 1/4" wheels on my bike. I like 'em. If the wheels turn freely, and are round, not much to be gained by getting new ones.

    HAHAHA I assumed they had grabbed an Eddy lookalike and deliberately made sure he was in the foreground of that shot.

    And I think that is a very young Sue Novara next to a women's Paramount frame. Boy did I have it bad for her back in the day.

    Can you imagine how Ed Norton would do hand signaling on a bike. The drinking signal would be the way he drinks anyway. Maybe he invented that.

    Address the ball.
    "Hellllloooo ball".

    Just loosen up the brakes. No need to have them adjusted so close to the rim. I usually have at least half a centimeter or more gap between pad and rim.

    Brush painting is a good alternative. It's really simple. Can be done in your kitchen if you wanted to. And great durability. I use a waterborne alkyd gloss paint. Dries overnight. It can be sanded...

    From what I researched it's an '84. The addition of the black lug detailing led me to believe. Found one somewhere on the internet that showed this particular paint detailing was a '84.

    I think a 70's Motobecane Grand Touring with a Wald basket, upright bars, some twine, and some good Ole Zinnser Orange shellac would get you pretty close for under $500.

    I keep on expounding on Challenger. It's the real deal. You just can't imagine how much time it saves and how well it works. It's Simple Green on steroids. I bought a gallon of it several years ago....

    Not much value there. $125 max.

    With the full monty of Campy Super Record, gotta be up around $7-800, even in its unkept state.

    Squirt some wd-40 on it and wipe it down. Let's see what you really have there.

    In the heyday everyone was on sew-ups and carried a spare. Frame pumps were the norm. Heck I raced with my pump on the bike frequently, just cause it was like a permanent fixture.
