    You too, eh? Ugh. Turns out some of them are worth a pretty penny these days.

    First LP purchase? That's a tough one. I think it was Meet the Beatles but my mom undoubtedly chipped in as my...

    Beauty Stan. An old friend had one of those (6). It was the most fun car to drive ever.
    Almost scary fun.

    I mounted my Veloflex Paris-Roubaix tires with the logos on the non-drive side...on purpose.
    Now I'm going to have to go look for some little arrows.

    Technically, the seller is correct. If Reynolds 531 steel is not an alloy, what is it?
    While the term alloy is generally used loosely to mean aluminum these days,
    Steel is also an alloy.

    Lately been on a vinyl kick. Getting a bit carried away. Have to admit, being a visually-oriented person, I collect some of them for their covers. A lost art. But I won't acquire them if I don't...

    Very beautiful work, MZilliox. While full dress salmon flies are above my ability level, I love tying flies, and have done so most all my life. Here's a few that I've framed, etc., on commissions....

    If you are going to restore to its original glory…it will of course never be original again…please don't powder coat it.
    Have it painted.

    It would depend, for me. What vintage Hot Wheels? Some old ones are worth some money. The new ones? Not much, I wouldn't think.

    My oldest bike was made in 1963. I was only ten at the time.

    If it is related to the plating, there is nothing you can do about it, of course.
    If it were me, I'd just clean it up, carefully, and enjoy it.

    Some folks like bright, shiny, polished parts. Some prefer otherwise. Tastes differ.

    Whew, I'm not alone. My reasons are silly. I tend to believe in one case, balls, they may be better than the "new" ones. Stoopid.
    And in another case, I know the old Campy 1.8 mm cables are...

    I've been known to use padded shorts and gloves while riding. In fact, every time I ride. Ye gods.

    I always did too, Eric. But I like the length of Newbaum's much more. Sure comes in handy.
    Plus, it seems thicker and more "cushy" than Velox.

    Well, I think the old saying is actually "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Or used to be. But whether something is or isn't "art" is an old and mostly meaningless debate.

    Super 68's wouldn't be too far out, though they didn't appear until the later Grand Records. I have a 74 Motobecane that I put Campy side pulls on, which originally came with Super 68's. Sort of...

    I would try lightly rubbing with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits first. Quite often the original paint, which has been on there for decades, is impervious to such things as mineral spirits....

    "Bikes aren't art". That may be the one thing from this poster I agree with. Bikes are not art. But, there are many inanimate objects that can be appreciated for their aesthetic appeal. Some here,...
