    Echoing what others are saying here, it would be hard to tell whether the frame itself is solid and without dents. Lots of very questionable areas, just from looking at the photos. As is, lucky to...

    At an advanced age, your skin changes. Thinner in places, and easier to cut or scrape. Any kind of thin glove, whether latex, vinyl or nitrile, means less scrubbing off the heavy black stuff with a...
  5. New build! '89 Cannondale SR with NEW Shimano 11 speed. 56cm, Red, Gorgeous!

    As many of you know, I build bikes over the winter simply for pleasure. It's a great hobby that keeps me connected to bicycles, especially when the weather keeps me indoors. The down side is that...

    At the 68 mile mark on last weekend's Tour de Palm Springs in California, with a friend from the DC area who also flew out for the ride.

    Any Shimano (or actually pretty much any brand) non-aero lever will work just fine with those calipers. I just sold a pair of used 6207's with black hoods on eBay for $15 and they languished for a...

    There are a bunch of 80's Sugino and Shimano cranks out there that are 110 doubles or 110/74 triples with stenciled logos that are easily removed during the polishing process. Some of them have a...

    For those from out of town who did it last year, what's the best way to travel? Fly to San Jose and drive down (flights more expensive but shorter drive)? Fly to LA and drive up (cheaper flights but...

    Bottechia, Atala, Bianchi, Tommasso, some others would be available at that price. Riders, not museum bikes.
    Masi, DeRosa, Pinnarello...maybe but they'd likely be more highly patina'd.
    Sweet spot...

    Engraving is part of a Social Security number, back in the day this was an anti-theft and theft recovery thing. You may find it on other components as you clean it up.

    Congrats on your Mooney....

    Not a huge fan of the VO headsets, especially when you can get a solid Tange for less.

    Pretty much anybody with basic mechanical skills can build a bike from a pile of parts.

    Someone with better skills who's willing to pay a little attention can build a bike that performs well and...

    Not to rain on your 7-Eleven parade, but the Merckx team stuff is post-87. Bike with non-aero levers and cables should be fine, switch the pedals and you're good to go. That RD should be able to...

    That's a nice Medici. I picked one up late last year, higher price point but my size and (quite literally) barely ridden. And all Super Record. Missed out on another one recently, bidding went up...

    My '87 rides like a dream. It was almost unridden when I bought it over year ago but still did a complete refurbishment to ensure it would be as good as possible. Mine is a 23" and weighs 26 pounds...

    Pat, at this point I'm planning to ride the '86 silver/grey Ironman at SOTR. It's a compact with an 11/28 rear cassette, so gearing isn't an issue.
