    375492

    July 4, 1983. I take the tag-off from our team's runner to begin the 20-mile bike leg in a team triathalon, while my canoeist member holds the bike up. Yes, I still have the Colnago and the...

    But now it makes the bike look NOS. "Still has the original packing material." I like the front hub generator to power the lights. Very chic. Back in 1960 I visited some friends in Victoria B.C....

    Some of the "gold" colored bikes in the 1980's were chrome that had a gold-orange colored clear coat sprayed over them. Had to be treated like paint, i.e., wax polish, not abrasive polish. ...

    You're right; I got a little confused. You would need to add to the top of the fork dropout slot.

    Use a Dremel to lengthen the brake shoe slot in the caliper. If it's steel use a stone, if aluminum, use a 1/8" carbide burr. Also might be able to lengthen the axle slot in the fork dropout.

    Looks like a nice bike. The Bianchi name is widely recognized as a bike worth having. Store it inside and buy a decent U-lock to use when you have to park it outdoors on campus. BTW, the U-lock...

    I've used blue loctite on mine with no ill effects. They can still be adjusted by hand. Eventually the loctite loses effectiveness anyway, and it's back to square one. Red loctite holds too well...

    My Nuovo Record group from 1972 is still working great, too, after about 30,000 miles of road work.

    5-speed corncob cluster. There's a good bit of extra weight in big cogs and in that extra (6-speed) cog. I still have some good useable SunTour 5-speed aluminum freewheels but guess what - they...

    Bench vise. Slide hammer. Air chisel. Recip saw (sawzall). It doesn't stand a chance. But how do all these posts and stems get stuck in the first place?

    Love the "after" look. The blue rims and speckled bar tape were taking attention from the frame, the real star of the show. The new bar tape is pure patina.

    Sometimes you don't even have to be on the road. One day a bud came by my house to discuss another passion of mine, RC powerboat racing. We were hanging out in the workshop and he couldn't stop...

    I can't identify the frame material or components group from your pictures, but that appears to be an upper-mid-range triathalon bike from the mid-to-late 1980's. Also appears to be in good rideable...

    I think I'd favor the Super Sport. They really hadn't worked out all the details to make affordable aluminum frames better than steel at that time. Just MHO.

    Wow! I've got a great-condition set of those - record track pedals with the tooth plates - with good chrome metal dust caps - in my stash. Hold or sell? Sell or hold? Tough choice.

    They appear to be assembled inside-out and missing the outside dust covers.

    No, I think the downtube braker guy still just has a total of one post.
