Polished and waxed the frame and fork on my latest project, 1990 Univega Nuovo Sport. Also test fitted a pair of cf wheels I have. If I figure out the upgrade to an 8-speed correctly, then they stay. Or I can always transfer the original 7-speed cassette with spacers.

Hey Rob,

Are you doing pink for the bottle cage?

Yes,Law. I figured it will make a nice contrast since the word CHROMOLY is in pink and the letter N too.I had leftover pink from my car project.
I'm going with pink bar tape too. Keeping with the 80's-90's look.

One thing I like about this bike - other than the ride, which is sublime - is that it doesn't show its size as much as many others do. This really is a 25" frame:

Lovely bike! And nothing wrong with a large bike showing its size, you're evidently a big guy riding a big bike, what's not to like?

Here is a build from a frame I sold, the buyer is now hooked on steel. I've been a bad influence, again...https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...bad942c1f1.jpg

Best part about this is the look on your cat’s face. “This should be good.”

Wadsworth supervises all activity. And if there’s a tool or part missing he’s usually sitting on it.

I've got three on the front burner right now: A 1986 Rossin RL (this'll be my third Rossin) that's going to be built Nuevo Record. A 1977 PX-10 that the frame was restored for me four years ago, and it's only now that I'm finally getting around to building it. And finally a late-30's/early-40's Rollfast girl's bike that I've had in storage for close to 10 years now. I've managed to save most of the original finish, but the rear rack, rear rim, and front fender were nothing but a mass of rust with absolutely no paint left. The first two have been powder coated in what was the closest match I could find to the very faded paint. The front fender is not only equally rusted, but I'm going to have to beaten back into the proper shape before I can ever think of blasting and coating. Still undecided about the chain guard, that's what's left of the original paint, and it's awful damned marginal, but I'm trying to be as much of a purist about this as I can be. I have no doubt that this is going to be a money loser, because I've never seen bikes like this go for what's put into them, but I'm primarily doing it to work on my chops as a restorer. My real dream is to do something pre-WWI.

Basket Case
 
Recently I was given a bike frame and two boxes of parts. It looks like a Legnano mid 60s. Still trying to ID the year and model.

Wheels. Had to relace the front on my International thanks to a rookie mistake I made when I built it. Soon will be receiving a Sun XCD high flange rear cassette hub for the same bike.

Love old stands! Not the only one!
Can we get some pictures of the stand and some particulars?

JaccoW 02-21-19 12:05 PM

Fitted some new tyres to the Batavus. Stop gap since I plan on building a pair of new wheels, starting with the rear this weekend.

Still working through the Nishiki Maxima build. Tubular wheels will eventually go on it. Looking at a set of Araya Aero 4 now and would welcome comments about those if anyone has used them.

Ultegra 6500 derailleurs and brakes, 6400 brake levers (IIRC) and crankset. Will probably source a 38 or 39t inner ring for the crankset. Simplex Retrofriction shifters. Cinelli stem and bars and IRD cartridge BB.

Well, not until the weather improves around here. I've had to close down my shop this winter because it was costing too much to heat, and I wasn't able to spend as much time out there as I usually do during winter.

The stand itself is a CL find, an old Minoura 3100 series. Not sure exactly how old, but it works just fine for my needs.

Sometimes I use it to hold frames during paint touch-up, and I'm not too picky about masking it. So the colors tend to change over time. :D

2 hours is about my limit out here at this temp. I had left the door to the house open for a little while. It was 38* earlier!

Decided to give the Peugeot PSV10 equipped with a Jubilee some range but the large ugly Maillard 28t cog needed some hogging out. Quicky made jig, holes drilled and chamfered - done in about 30 minutes. ;")

As for the standard cage Jubilee derailleur, the 28 tooth is max.

I promised myself I would overhaul a few wheels this winter.
And the 1st step is getting them clean.
So this morning in the cold, but beautiful, sunshine I pulled all the vintage front wheels. Polished a few front hubs, a few spokes and checked tubulars for glue.
Out of curiosity also weighed them all.

And??

(With or without tires?)

(I see only 11 wheels. What happened to the 12th?)

11 front wheels from the vintage ones, the rear wheels are still on the bikes.
This was a relatively 'quick n easy' task and allowed enough time for the first bike ride in nearly a month.

Front wheel weights ranged from 1050g up to 1500g.
9 tubulars were the lightest, 2 clinchers were the heftiest.


And?? = And what?
They look shinier.
Not wrenching?? Wrong thread??

billnuke1 02-24-19 10:59 AM

Ahh. That’s better!

Good day to clean up the shop.

You weighed them, right?

I started taking the BB apart on one of my bikes, and you'll never guess what I found.
:D
