    Thanks, Chas. I'm still trying to find the courage to mount those Grifos on another set of rims. :o

    I used a metal tape measure (spring rule) to clean mine. The thin flexible tape worked surprisingly well on the round shapes of the tubes, and as the original paint proved to be much harder than the...

    A great film. The Dutch team won the team prize that year, which prompted the first 'grand depart' outside France ever, in 1954 in Amsterdam. Here's Kees Pellenaars, the team manager, with two of his...

    That is a nice-looking machine. If it is indeed Dutch I'd love to know more about it. I'm not familiar with the brand, and I don't recall having seen a Dutch bike with chrome lugs before.

    Thanks. The chain rings came off either a Solida or Nervar crank set I found on a cheap mixte, I don't remember which. The cranks and spindle are Stronglights.

    A very nice machine, papik. It resembles one of my favorite rides, the Gitane I put together last year, right down to the brake levers and the steel 'compact' chain set (mine's a 50/38 iirc). Yours...

    I'm not aware of the existence of such a list (but would like a copy ;)). I can give you a first entry, however. Falcon: 57 mm. And I'll measure the Joco badge later.

    My first impression is that of an old frame that had extensive work done to it in the eighties (new drop-outs, added braze-ons).
