    On a couple of the older computers I use, I open PB in Firefox, which seems to load faster, and BF in the much less crashy Safari, where I don't need adblocker, because I'm a paid subscriber. But on...

    My 1987 Tempo is pretty much the same as yours but for paint and 105 shifty bits. It's the first really good bike I ever rode. It raised my standards quite a bit, as far as bikes go.

    Good find,...

    If you're not a particularly sensitive rider, I'd suggest you try the C-dale. My 1990 ST600 is a decidedly stiff frame, but I'm learning to like it a lot. I've tried a couple of different wheelsets...

    Nice racing bike. Road bike. Sell it between $200-400 depending on your market. Looks like it could stand to be cleaned up a bit.

    Quite a variation in sizing, but all pretty nice bikes and reasonably priced if in the $2-300 range, albeit with quite different secondary riding characteristics. Eg. the Cannondales will feel...

    Nice looking frame, with the Cinelliesque details. How about a couple dozen more shots of the underneath of the bottom bracket? That ought to narrow it down.

    ;)

    Ah, Oklahoma. Come for the blistering heat; stay for earthquakes and poisoned groundwater. :)

    ^Best answer^

    I'm guessing your seat tube diameter is 31.8, but that's just a guess. Once you've determined that, there are gadzillions of good used front derailleurs on the big auction site (or...

    Looks like that bike has all the right parts already. Get yourself a saddle you like and don't change anything else.

    Nice find :thumb:

    Really nice finish. Those Groodys really understand about not burying the frame details under an avalanche of powder, don't they? Looks as good as a top-notch paint job.

    What they all said. Change nothing but the saddle and the bar tape, unless you are having a specific problem with the shifting that can't be blamed on the old-school chain or worn cogs or something....

    Maybe he bought this one when he started out as a janitor, then worked his way up through the ranks? He was later buried with his full-chrome custom Paramount :P

    That's pretty spendy for leMans with a beat up paint job. Not a bad bike, but I would expect to get about half that price for it (maybe) in my market. You might want to go a size up, too, if you...

    And it's possible a previous owner has already done this, rendering the clamp area smaller than the rest of the tubing. My Lambert came to me this way, and I made a tapered hardwood dowel to bang...

    If it is an old layer of Proofide or some thing similar, I'd first try warming up the leather a little with a hairdryer and buffing it out with a rag. Then maybe try the saddle soap, if it doesn't...

    Roypercy, I ride all three sizes on my 27" rims, 1, 1 1/8, 1 1/4. I probably won't be buying any more of the 1" tires, but I wanted to try them. So, yeah, I'd go up a step if I were you. As far...

    Could be a worn out chain, worn out cogs on the freewheel or both. First, lube the chain and make sure you don't have any semi-frozen links. Then replace it if it's still skipping. Then replace...

    Looks in pretty nice shape; I'm glad you didn't paint it. I think it nice enough and unusual enough not to mess with. Replace old tire and cables as needed and ride it original.
