    Very pretty!

    Really one of the prettiest blues I've ever seen and the condition is remarkable.

    Is it proper to ask what type of tubing she has? Most customs don't seem to have a label on them...

    Definitely a sad ending to what was really an all-American industry. The 70's really spelled the end for American watchmakers when the quartz movement did away with the highly complex wind-up and...

    Very nice!

    I imagine this is a pretty rare bird. I didn't even know Atala did track bikes or chrome bikes at all so I never would have guessed it's an Atala. Great work by the BF members here on...

    I have the same Benrus. I've always been a big fan of Benrus watches, I guess because it was the first "good" watch I owned when I was a young man. I have about 30 of them now.

    Here's my favorite...

    It's a real improvement over the "before" version. Ride her well!

    I'm not sure I'd put moustache bars, fenders and 32mm tires on a 72 Colnago Super. It's a somewhat rare bike year wise and meant to be a lightweight racer, so to me it's kind of like putting snow...

    Yikes! At 187lbs. on a good day, I must really be stressing out my 2 SL framed bikes!

    Kind of surprised the weight limit is so low on SL frames, but then again, we are unfortunately growing larger...

    Nice one.

    I love the paint scheme on this one, although I'm sure it's not every ones taste, and I'm pretty sure Ernesto couldn't have fit his name anywhere else on this bike. There is no...

    Nice one Gdando.

    Olmo is well loved here, but as bradtx said, they weren't sold here like Colnago's or Pinarello's were. They are sort of rare here in comparison. To bad she is to small, it's a...

    One of the best the French made IMHO and the most desirable. Looks pretty darn immaculate from the pictures. Lovely color and its certainly the color to have. To think it...

    That DeRosa looks like a great find Grady. I can easily see why you would have an attachment to her. I'll have to try one someday.

    This.

    So much of the mystique is the heritage. No other country can boast such a rich history of cycling as the Italians. I mean, who doesn't want to ride the same bike as Bartoli or Coppi or so...
