I think its been on here before, but this is my Veloce, built for me by John Stinsman in Allentown, PA in about 1986. Paint fades from dark rose metallic to light rose metallic. It runs a Sugino triple with Huret titanium Duo Par RD, Huret FD, Phil hubs with 5 speed Regino Oro FW, Campy seat post, Cinelli 64 handle bar and stem, Modolo Professional brakes.

75 Motobecane Grand Jubile, currently running Stronglight 93 crank, Huret Duo Par RD, and a mishmash of Frankenbikemobilia

Just completed this one for the Mrs for Valentines Day

A mid 80s Sekai Ladysport. Have an email in to Georgena Terry to find out if this was one of hers. I changed the component build to give it wider range gearing and went with bar end shifters because Susan is not used to down tube shifting and I want her to actually enjoy riding it. Note the 24 inch front wheel.

Your other bikes depicted are gems, but this one deserves another look. Rarely found mixte of this caliber. Nice choice of components as well!

Thanks. All the components on this Motobecane are original. This is the second matched pair of men's and mixte Grand Jubilees I've owned. The first pair were silver with black panels that I sold to a fellow in California who was heavily involved with Eroica CA a few years back. I love the combination Nervex lugs and long cage Jubilee RD.

Almost missed this thread.
It's well known red is the fastest colour, and I need all the help I can get.

1982 Holdsworth Avanti (531) in Holdsworth Red Pearl - the only colour it came in.



1961 Holdsworth Cyclone in my formulation of Holdsworth Red Pearl

A 1986 Focus RD 600 with full Shimano 600 groupset that I picked up last night from the original owner. It had been hanging on the garage wall for over 25 years. Paint is nearly perfect. it's a little gummy so a full service is due.

one of these bikes is red and black, and the other is sorta orange-ish (and two dimensional).




The red & black bike is a Hetchins.
The other bike is undetermined, but with a geometry stable enough to permit riding with a hat full of bread. Pretty impressive!
This mural adorns the north wall of Panaderia Ortiz, where wonderful aromas can be experienced while riding by.
