    I think Acer-Mex did produce some of the first Centurion's, which is what this is. Then to confuse us some more, later on we got Centurion-badged Cinelli's. Or something like that.

    I don't know where you draw the line between a "real" Merckx versus something else, because during the early 1970's Eddy Merckx didn't have his own frame factory. Instead he was paid to have his name...

    I take a piece of wooden rod about the diameter of a broomstick, and attach it tightly to a portable work stand in a vertical position. I slide the head tube over the wood and it holds fine. Easy to...

    Nice bike! I'd just ride it the way it is, and maybe slowly collect the missing Campagnolo Record parts. If you're commuting then keep clincher wheels. The original freewheel was a 14-24 5-speed Atom...

    I thought the tight Italian road racing geometry was started by some of the artisan builders like Masi, Colnago, and De Rosa about 1970, spread from there to the rest of Italy, and by the 80's was...

    Well, maybe my memory ain't what it used to be. Come to think of it, I always ran mine set up as a racer with narrow 700C tires and no fenders. But anything that calls itself a sport tourer should...

    To me the real hotrod bikes are those lowriders or whatever they call them. Lowered, stretched out, tons of chrome, 200 spoke wheels, etc. Probably not all that fast although they look very cool.

    Bar-ends on road racing bikes strikes me as a very 60's thing. The images I have seen of European pro road racers using bar-ends are all from the early 70's or before. What did the cyclo-cross riders...

    I was watching that one too just out of curiosity (I have a '67 Record). You got a great deal on it. One thing to keep in mind, the rear wheel clearance is huge. On mine a Campy brake with a drop...

    People are too polite to say anything out loud.

    I have several of these, and the first thing I do is scrape the lettering off with a smooth knife blade.

    I have kept friction shifting on my older bikes, but have started using Shimano ramped-tooth freewheels. That to me makes a bigger difference in shifting than the indexing, it keeps the vintage look...
