    Beautiful - and a good deal. I test rode a similar Modo Volare recently (red and black with Daytona instead of Mirage), but the seller is stuck on getting $450 for it, which is more than I'd value...

    I have a Velo Orange sprung Model 5, which is very similar to the Brooks Flyer (i.e., essentially a sprung B17), and I also have a B17. The Flyer or Model 5 are certainly heavier (which may or may...

    Now that it's less than a week away, is there a list of who all from the forums is going? Is anyone trying to get together explicitly, or is everyone just figuring we'll bump into each other?

  5. Raleigh International frame

    Here's a guy claiming to have a Raleigh International frame: 59-60cm Raleigh international chrome frame and fork reynolds campy.

    Well, since you asked, I'm in favor of pulling a color from elsewhere on the bike for the bar tape. Maybe that golden yellow from the text on the (theoretical) seat tube decal? Or possibly the...

    That's a beautiful bike. I'm liking those head tube lugs. Someone in my area has been listing a Rauler for a while on craigslist, but I'm not that familiar with them.

    Yeah, I didn't luck out - that was a hypothetical. :)

    Donor bikes seem to be the way to go. Based on the prices you guys are quoting, I could pick up an inexpensive Veloce set for less than I...

    This. And that's not really tough - just don't let your son start grinding off braze-ons to turn it into a fixie.

    At this point, the "upgrades" I've made have typically been either maintenance or...

    Nice. It's cool when someone has already gotten their "grail" bike and really does love it.

    Heh, interesting stories about British manufacturing. Might have to pick up that book.

    They had yardsticks at Raleigh, right?

    Hi all,

    I have 2 Raleigh Super Course Mk IIs. The dark gray repainted one is a '74, the red and white one is a '75:

    dark gray
    red and white

    I was measuring a few frames earlier and noticed...

    I actually have a PX-10, and I've recently acquired a Moto Grand Record frameset, so once I get the GR built up, I'll try to post some thoughts about how they compare.

    I would consider your GJ and GR solidly upper mid-level at least, since the only things higher would have been the Champion models, which I've read (here) were "semi-custom and not readily available."
  18. approximate cost to put together a vintage Campy group

    Hi all,

    I haven't posted this question under Appraisals because this isn't about specific parts, but hypotheticals. I know that a number of people around here have rebuilt bikes with Campy gear,...

    Hey romperrr,

    I have a Nishiki Cresta frame that might interest you. I'm fairly certain it's the size you're seeking, it's got canti brake mounts, and the Cresta is typically seen on lists of...

    I don't want to hijack the thread, but just a quick question for you, due ruote: what did you do for brakes on the Gran Sport you mentioned? I think the original rear brake would have been quite a...

    places to rent a bike in Dallas, TX?

    I know I could post this regionally, but I'm sure there are some people here in C&V who live in Texas and might be able to make a recommendation. And C&V is where all the cool people hang out. ;)

    With regard to the neck soreness, I'll recommend something I read about in the bike fit forum related to...

    Curious about people's thoughts on locking up this bike. One issue I've always seen with break-away/S&S style couplers is that you can lock up the rear part of the frame as well as any other bike,...
