The above yellow one is the Gitane 72 Tour de France.

And the blue one on the wall, there also is a newer Cinelli frame up front and an absolute beaut of a track frame upstairs, which I did not take pictures of.

I forgot to mention there is a carbon frame Specialized Allez frame hanging up back in the yard. Size 57cm is my best guess.

Maybe you shouldn't have remembered. Can we stop talking and posting about bikes in the 57cm/23" range?

Discovered my co-op the other day, 25 minute drive but I'm bored in the winter. It's nice to rent a stand/work bench for $10/hr as I have no space in my apt with my spouse and young kiddo. Just having two bikes in the house is a storage challenge. Plus all the knowledgeable people to help (though I try and spend 10 minutes figuring it out before bugging them), the gobs of specialty tools, all the parts at hand.

I thought I'd spend a fortune getting my beater Panasonic going, but $15 to buy a fork/an hour on the bench and I cleaned, repacked the headset - now good to go!!

This thread inspired me get over to our Co-op here in Memphis and donate some parts and a couple of lower-end bikes I had been given or gotten as part of other acquisitions.. Known about them for some time but never managed to sync up - Nice folks doing good work.

Hi Folks,

During this week's shifts at our co-op here in Salem, OR, I Discovered a few gems. During my lunch break, I was checking the display cases and discovered some interesting head badges. Pix attached. Also, got a picture of one of the "re-built/retro-modded" bikes that was about to go on display. The local Vo-tech school does the repaint and the bikes are built using recycled components plus new consumables, i.e. cables, housings, brake pads, etc. I also, spotted a large framed vintage Eddy Merckx that appears to have a Campagnolo Rallye drive train and a decent, but weathered Centurion Ironman. Looks like ~56 CM with all the parts still on it. Sorry, didn't get pictures on these. Hopefully, next week. Just for fun, I've included a picture a recent donation, a scooter bike. What were the designers thinking?

I'll try to find more interesting vintage stuff in the future. Right now, we're focused on building inventory for spring and summer sales that support the shop and its throughout the year. My time this week was taken up with servicing and refurbishing a very nice Specialized Expedition Sport.

Cheers,

Van

More discoveries @ NW Hub

Hi folks,

Still quite busy at the NW Hub, therefore, didn’t have much opportunity to look for interesting/vintage bike stuff.

The Centurion Ironman that I referenced last week has moved on or otherwise disappeared. I did see a Centurion Accordo with one of those nifty circus style paint schemes – lots of pastels in the graphics and base fade. Sorry, but didn’t want to dig it out of the storage racks to get pix. From ~6ft it looked pretty good.

The Eddie Merckz was a bit of a disappointment. It is one of the Falcon UK models built under license. It looks low level; moderate components, stamped dropouts, no braze-ons, etc. Nice bits are a Campagnolo Rallye RD with claw hanger, wrap over seat stays, and, of course, Molteni orange paint. It’s rough, but could be an interesting project for someone it fits. 63 cm CTC seat tube, 60 cm CTC top tube.

In my search for the next refurb, I came across a nice, but weathered Sekai 1000. Lugged Tange #5 frame with Suntour components and Dia Compe brakes with drilled levers.

Last summer a nearby shop closed and we inherited the leftovers. There was a box of NOS DiaCompe and Weinmann side pull brake parts which included some drilled levers with quick release. I haven’t seen them lately, but will keep looking. I'm also checking for more headbadges.

Cheers,

Van

At the Joe-op

Well, I made a discovery this week, a different kind of co-op. Found an ad for a Sirrus (too small for me and I'm not really interested anyway) at a new place called Joe's Bike Shop in the old Northside. Knew the street but the shop was in a church basement several blocks off my usual route. Turns out the place is a non-profit community outreach shop in the church, teaching kids to work on bikes and selling things, and it was started by this guy in the name of a late friend who dreamed of opening a place like this, a guy with whom I used to work so I'm calling this the Joe-op. Here's what I found.

Raleigh Sports ladies' bike belonging to a customer.

They could, they're petty good about that. It's still there, I'm a little surprised they haven't tried to display that blue Gitane better. Its been there a while. Its going to be real cheap, or built up and at their best price. Hard to say what they'll do. Lol

That looks like a good coop. I bought a set of pads from a shop in CA a couple of years ago. They were Flying Pigeon brake pads but I haven't needed them yet. Richmond seems to have tons of good old bikes.

Wow! Darn Bike Works. Dangerous place, indeed! I'll have to check it out on Saturday (was in PDX last weekend). Though I won't buy it--just picked up an 64cm '80s Davidson Impulse for muuuuuch less than I think it should have gone for. I swear I'm selling things, it's just no one is buying...except for me!

More discoveries @ NW Hub

Hi folks,

This week’s search for good stuff at the Northwest Hub in Salem, OR was a bit more fruitful.

The Centurion Accordo turned out to be a decent bike even though it is missing a few bits. Good wheels, drive train and cockpit plus very nice paint work. It would make someone a great first or general purpose bike.

Also, came across an early Cannondale commuter/light tourer. It’s worn and weathered, but has lots of potential. The aluminum frame and cromo fork combo should ride nicely. Properly sealed and assembled would make an ideal all weather commuter for our damp PNW.

I had the opportunity to look through the photo archives and picked some interesting ones. An important one showing, a work station where our training classes are held and where members can work on their own bikes. These are also used for refurbishment work.

A frivolous one, showing, a “frame toss” at our “transfer station”. This is a regional recycling center where they have a bin designated for unwanted bikes and parts. We collect these weekly, then sort/strip for bikes that can be refurbished and/or reusable parts. Anything we cannot use to support our programs is returned to the appropriate recycling stream. An interesting part of center’s functions is that they burn non-toxic combustibles to produce electricity.

I also found more vintage head badge photos. One for a Windsor and one for a Centurion.

I’m a bit jealous of the other co-ops. They seem to get seem to get better stuff than we do. Or, maybe it moves on before I see it.

Cheers,

Van

Man that Centurion badge is awesome! I've been wanting to collect a couple of different Centurion badges but I never seem to come across any unfortunately.

This Windsor emblem appears it may be non-Acer-Mex.

Does anyone know if there has been another Windsor brand?

Found an ad for a Sirrus (too small for me and I'm not really interested anyway) at a new place called Joe's Bike Shop in the old Northside. Knew the street but the shop was in a church basement several blocks off my usual route. Turns out the place is a non-profit community outreach shop in the church, teaching kids to work on bikes and selling things, and it was started by this guy in the name of a late friend who dreamed of opening a place like this, a guy with whom I used to work so I'm calling this the Joe-op. Here's what I found.

I run through there every weekend during Marathon training season. You would be surprised how many old faded bikes with Columbus, Reynolds, Tange, etc. stickers you see chained up to trees/signs.
