    Who could resist that bike? Awesome. Never met a Gitane I didn't like.

    Couldn't look more perfect to me. A balance of classic and surprising. I think a silver group would look boring by comparison.

    Nice bike. On a side note CLB brakes were neither no name nor crappy. Might want to do a little research there.

    Enjoy the ride and have fun! The distance is nothing to worry about as you've been riding for some time. I took a group of youth on a 180km ride to Niagara Falls and even the very casual riders...

    Cool bike! I considered this one for a while, but too many projects. Gardin used every tubing under the sun, but I can't imagine this one being built with Oria or similar tubing since it came with...

    I think this group IS super amazing. If you run it with the correct chain and freewheel you will have perfect shifts every time. The bike I have it on shifts so perfectly that if you didn't feel...

    Great topic for a thread! I'm no expert, but I look for thinned lugs with an elegant shape. I've always thought the lugs on my Strawberry were particularly nice (ignore the wax that I hadn't...

    Too bad. The Miele probably suits Toronto riding more anyway. Isn't it an Ishiwata frame? I saw a Nova once in champagne and thought it was a nice bike. Ride away into the beautiful summer night...

    Neither? Moving on? From what? They're both nice bikes. This thread is confusing me.

    That's a tough one. I'm a big fan of Miele's. However the Cannondale is a nice touring rig. Very different bikes. I'd suggest keeping both but I see you're hoping to cover the cost of one with...

    Beautiful bike in one of my all time favourite colours. The saddle was a perfect choice too. Nice!!M

    Looks beautiful!! Love the colour as well and always thought brown with red was under-rated. +1 to what bikedued said about the sram 8 speed chain and twisted tooth freewheel when it comes to...

    Your son's a lucky guy! Unless you decide to modernize, rando-ize, or otherwise molest and mess it up. My eldest son is his age and I think he's old enough to understand preservation.

    Congratulations Randy, it looks absolutely beautiful and I know from experience it rides just the same. You did a great job wrapping the bars, but I'm not 100% sure about black tape with a brown...

    Any standard road brake cable will fit. The only problem I've ever run into with shift levers is simplex retro friction, which require a campy cable, but brake levers should be no problem at all.

    Looks like a nice bike from what I can see, and welcome. Not the most informative pic, though. Gears are somewhat under-rated. If you like how it rides, I'd keep riding it. I found that my early...

    I've used those very brakes and they work fine. Switching to bar-ends is no big deal, you just need shifters (obviously) new cables and housing and the adapters that screw into the down tube...

    Can't help you in identifying the model, it's very difficult with Mieles because there are so many models. I can say you've got a great looking bike that should be a very nice rider. I've ridden...

    I don't want to be a spoil-sport, but I think your Raleigh looks perfect as it sits, and already perfect for long country rides. There are enough Faux Rando bikes out there, but maybe not enough...

    This sounds awesome. I have a great starting point and am in if this is the criteria. I don't have one but rigid mountain bike would be fun too.

    Maybe the yellow was added on over the original blue? The internal cable guides and spacing look very Gitane to me. I'm going to guess Gitane Criterium made with Vitus 983 tubing off the bat for...

    Fantastic. Well done on the thoughtful restoration. Can't wait to see this one built up. What are your plans for it? I would be thinking early campy record, no-record hubs and universal 61...
