How could a bike with chrome head lugs ever look frumpy!? Go apologize to your bicycle.

So, my much beloved Schwinn Voyageur 11.8 fixed conversion has been joined by a shiny, geared sibling. I have such a softspot for the 11.8, that when this nicely upgraded tourer showed up on the ‘bay, I just couldn’t resist…

1982 Voyageur 11.8 (Chrome nice day bike)
- Bullseye front and rear hubs
- Bullseye bottom bracket and derailuer pullies.
- Shimano 600 headset
- Deore derailuers, crank (triple – Biopace!) and index shifters
- Diacompe aero brake levers and Diacompe Royal Cran Compe brake calipers
- Brooks B15

1979 Voyageur 11.8 (Black fixed commuter)
- Surly track flipflop / MA3
- Very old, wide and flat North Road bars flopped upsidedown
- San Marco Regal
- Diacompe centerpulls with some nice old QR hangers
- neat little front rack off from an old Italian city bike which followed me home long ago...

Digging in the garage today, I unearthed my '79 Chris Kvale sport-tourer in need of some wheel work & new tires... I tuned it a bit, then did a spin around the block, and thought I'd get a couple of pictures before hanging it where I can now reach it for rides (needed to rotate bikes). Check out Chris' amazing lugwork, in a style typical of late '70s US custom builders. Fairly plain lugs with gobs of time and handwork, making them just right. To me, this frame is gorgeous...

Marty, I'm curious; what's the serial# on that one (wondering when built)?
I'm going to put a Limited back on the road soon, that I think was built in '77. How does your wife like that bike?

I know I can ask Mr. Eisentraut, but does anyone know who was building the Limited line after Bruce Gordon left in '76?

from Sterling P.

TOG,

Ok the bike is serial number 76L500, derailleurs are
pat 72 front and rear, the crank looks like victory or triomphe
(which ever doesn't have the dog leg).
I have no clue as to the serial number scheme, the 76 looks suspiciously
like a 1976 model?
I have a few e-mails from Albert somewhere (probably on work machine).
to be honest, my wife doesn't ride it all that much. She much
prefers Ergo over downtube, sad I know but at least she's riding.
I've ridden the bike a few times but its really small for me,
wonderful ride if I had to compare it to anything in my stable
it's closest to my RIH. Both are very surefooted, easy bikes to
ride.
Right after I bought it I was told that Brian B wanted the bike
since it's his size. As the wife isn't riding it wonder if he'd still
like it? I'd really like to see it get used.

Marty

Marty, it's a '76, probably brazed up by Bruce Gordon. The serial# on mine starts with a 77. Offer it to me before Brian... Trade for?

TOG, that is a great looking bike. Nice touch with the front derailleur cable guide. Is it symmetrical?

Belgian red.


This 84 ? Paganini s supposedly built by Ciocc for a belgian company. Super Record and Nuovo Record. Had a bent gear hanger and a twisted RD. Got it for 260 $ with a Campy crank extractor, peanut butter wrench and BB and headset wrenches.

How does that Paganini handle? It looks wonderful, but the overlap suggests it might be a bit tight.

Not exactly symmetrical, but there's one on each side of the BB shell, for both front and rear cables. They're the standard Campagnolo braze-on guides common from about mid '70s to early '80s. During that period, nearly every decent bike had similar guides. Before that style became popular, the chromed clamp-on guide was hip with most builders, as were simple brazed-on cable stops, which were often used with short bits of cable housing. A very few builders even used a small pulley brazed onto the top of the BB shell.

Though some did, very few bikes used an under BB shell cable routing until the early '80s, when that style became more popular.

Due to darkness and rain at 60 degrees north (Oslo) I have not been out with it yet . Hope to do so this weekend. This is a bike for group rides with other retro guys and girls (are there any?), sadly there are very few in Norway. I will post a ride report.

Unless the road goes way up, or the wind howls, this bike has most of the performance of a high dollar aluminum/carbon wonder bike. Yeah, it weighs 4 pounds more. Empty a water bottle.

Some years ago I had an old 531 Crescent with early (black brakes) DA. Serious overlap, no problem very sweet ride. Put on a slightly used C-record RD and then some idiot stole my bike. Toe overlap is only a problem at very slow speeds. I totally agrre that the old steel frames ride really well but I can't live without my briefters once i have got used to them. ( Steel Basso with DA 9 speed). I have the same frame that is on the early Gianni Motta picture in the Bulgier site. Wonderful bike with 120 mm spacing so I don't ride it much now.

Well Guys, my search is over and I got this bike thanks to a great forum member (OC Jerry) Everything on this bike is Super Record Campy with the exception of the Modolo Brake lever hoods and my Fujita Professional Saddle. The wheels I have on here are from my old Nishiki ( Super Champion, Suntour Winner Pro 13-26) but the wheelset that came with it (Campy Record Hubs, Regina Extra Oro 13-23, Fiamme Red Label Tubular rims) are still looking for tires so if anyone has any suggestions, let me know. Anyways, it's a great ride as I took it to the Solvang Prelude this past weekend. Thanks Again OC Jerry!

mswantak,
you'll appreciate the decal work!

They are right. Those are beautiful bikes (hint - we want you to post pictures). Whoever would have tossed it out needs professional help

Thought it about time to share my rides. Silver is a Raysport frame, a Cinelli Super Corsa knockoff inspired by St Louis racer and shop owner, Ray Florman, Sr. and built by Ian Alsop. Fun ride. Burgundy is an SLX Guerciotti I got from eBuy. Sold the newer equipment that was on it and put on Campy SR. Final cost of frame was $100 after selling off parts. Final bike is my oldest and longest owned, a Lejeune Champ du Monde. At the moment it is being refurbished to a more original color scheme (red, of course!) and is going to get French components. Bought it for $200 in 1973. Lots of miles and memories.

Here's my "new" daily driver. New to me from craigslist as of a week ago. I stripped it down to the frame and rebuilt using a mixture of its own parts, parts from another craigslist find and new stuff. It is a dream to ride compared to the old mountain bike I had been riding. Heavy though. It's a Shogun 200. Anyone know about when these were made? Anyways, just wanted to share my new ride, hopefully it will give me many miles of enjoyable riding.

Shoguns were a Japanase imported bike. I really liked the headbadges on them. I was looking at a Shogun 600 a few months back but had to pass on it. (Still kicking myself but it was a hair small). Looks like you have a solid ride there.
