That Carnielli/Bottechia is a real eye-catcher. Beautiful bike.

Not a perfect match but really just looking to protect the metal from rust

Getting ready to start the tear down and rebuild on this Tempo. Any good tips for cleaning up the rust around the top tube cable guides.

I've been successful with using naval jelly in those areas.

Fitted some VO Porteurs to my Randonneur pick up for initial fitout as shopping bike. Test fitted wheels and milked enough adjustment out of the 80's Shimano canti brakes for 700C (though I'll rebuild some 27" wheels and run a 7 speed freewheel). Just needs some thought on gears now...

Spent an hour or so cleaning up a pair of Lambert crank arms that I want to put on my next build with some VO 46/30 chainrings.

They polished up much nicer than I anticipated!

Before:


After:




Something I've been wondering, does anybody know for sure what kind of spindle these need? The guy I bought them from on a Google group told me that they take an ISO taper, so a Campagnolo BB should work fine with them.

But I saw something not too long ago on here that was planning on using a standard JIS tapered spindle?

They definitely are tapered, not for the old Lambert non-tapered square spindle.

love those bars. A little narrow for long distance but perfect in town. I use them in the old man upright position.

I was thinking that it must be a modern Legnano, based on the seatpost binder bolt.

I'm a big fan of the Cyclone GT, but the clamp bolt on the Mk II always annoyed me. It was bad enough just threading a cable through the clamp bolt, but I can't imagine replacing the bolt.
The "aero" trend of that era was just full of these misguided efforts at streamlining.
Good work!

Just trueing up an older, but totally excellent wheel built with a vintage Phil wood hub laced to a mavic rim. I think the hub may be from the 70s

they are a pita at times but for friction shifting a 7 speed freewheel they are about as good as it gets.

60's Grundig KS680. Should be interesting as I know next to nothing about vintage audio. Will be a fun winter project.

Cool stuff. Reminds me of my childhood. My grandpa loved music and had a couple of Sansui consoles.

I picked up a Grundig console several years ago.....for free. This was back in my guitar tube amp building days and the Grundig was outfitted with a bunch of Telefunken tubes. I kept several for my own use and did really well selling the remainder.

That's the name, alright, Telefunken. 👍 A nice console that says Telefunken seems hard to find though. Most of their stuff was excellent, but stuffed into as small a box as possible. 🙄 🤔😉

I figure if I can climb it with that corncob, I can descend it those brakes.

I hope.

Oh Man my folks had one of those consoles -brings back memories of listening to classical music (on vinyl) during Sunday dinners when I was a kid.

1988 Fiorini. Originally built with DA 2x7. A former Paramount pro had one built for him, and his brother wanted one, but didn't ride it much. 30 years later, it has new life.... 3x7 7700 except for the brake levers, 7402.
