Possibly my rarest and most collectible bike. Also least ridden of the ones in my size range.

My Gitane Cyclocross frame with a mix of non-period parts (which hopefully will soon include grip tape that is actually installed!)

This picture from March 2019 might be my most recent of this bike. Unfortunately, the bike may have to lose the crankset, as I want to gear the bike down for bike polo, a sport I have recently developed an interest in. There are as many as two matches per week here in NYC. I've only played once, and it's a load of fun.

It's a 1975 Viscount that I've converted to fixed gear.

A well ridden bike is a happy bike. A clean bike is even happier.

Technically late, but I was getting errors uploading this pic:

As best I can tell, this is a Cannondale '85 SR 900. I built it back up with Shimano tri-color components, and had to replace the fork with a 1" Nashbar carbon fork, which had the lovely effect of smoothing out the ride. I just found a white Nitto stem, which will be installed as soon as the handlebar tape needs replacing.

This was my first build, and started my love for these old frames!

And another late entry. I have a few of these

1984 Raleigh Racing USA Competition. My first vintage build, given resto mod treatment, still my favorite bike.



1985 Peugeot PSN10. Spray bombed white by previous owner. Done rat rod style with horrific paint intact, a clean DA7400 group and an Orphan Campy crank. Fine riding bike although relegated to trainer duty in my line up.



199? Davidson impulse. Pictured as purchased and in the build queue. Getting 9spd triple treatment for New England hill climbing.

What's a white bike month without a shot of a white bike against the snow in poor light? This is my 1982 Peugeot PXN 10:

I'm overhauling this 1980 AO-18. I finally got the left cotter out. I'm hoping to put in a square taper BB and reuse the old French-threaded cups.

Sometimes you can get away with using the old cups and a cotterless crank. I got that to work on my UE 8. If not, Amazon has inexpensive french cups

I have two spindles of extremely different dimensions, so I'm hoping one will work. If not, I have other options, and that BB you list is one of them. Thanks!
