Hope this works. This is my first time posting pictures. I had to resize them to get them to fit. I have a 1980 Raleigh Competition that I had professionally repainted. I bought it new. I got tired of the black bike and wanted something brighter, thus the red and white. My Raleigh Team Pro was a 1987 NOS frame that I bought from a guy in Scotland and built it up as an STI ride two years ago. The Raleigh Professional is a 1971 frame that I bought and built up with Campy components similar to what was on the bike when it was new.

Raleighman - beautiful collection you have there. Pictures come through just fine. Love the tires on the Team Pro. I'm resizing a couple shots of me and my newly finished ride and will be posting them in a few.

Thanks, The tires are Continental GP 3000's red tread with blue sidewalls. I bought an extra set to have since the GP 4000's do not come in that color combination.

Well the photos of me & the bike didn't come out very well (I'm looking into the sun and looking slightly away from the camera) so instead you all just get a picture of the bike. I'm sure most of you have seen these from my earlier thread, but I'll post up one shot for future readers:



Lots more photos

Raleighman, I see only two problems here... The bikes are all too large, and they're not in my collection.

Here's some photos of my Bob Jackson circa 74(?). It's new to me as of this summer and dang this thing is nice. I don't mean to boast but that's what this thread's for right?

The white is a repaint but the brown metallic seems original. It has mostly campy nuovo record components, the main exception being the universal centerpulls to accomodate those large english fenders. The triple chainring was a custom upgrade by local framebuilding legend Jim Merz.

Of course, you meant to boast. Whenever someone says starts a sentence with something like "I don't mean to..." It's always the opposite. It's ok. We're all here to drool over vintage bike porn

You're right, I was boasting. Usually I know better than to fall into the "I don't mean to..." trap. My favorite is when someone says "Now, don't take this personally", translation: i'm about to say something which I feel you will find personally offensive.

BTW, check out this vintage OLMO some lucky rider picked up for $177!!!! Yes, I know the bike is in France and was local pickup only but man....if that fit me I'd try real hard to find someone that was going or already is in Europe for the holidays.

check the serial number on the bottom bracket. i have a 1974 serial number 11042 confirmed by bj. my guess is that yours could be a few years newer. i'll post a picture of mine. yours looks to be a tourer versus a race by the geometry. and yes, i couldn't agree with you more. one fine bike. i have owned a paramount and a raleigh pro. know comparison in workmanship imho.

original picture from when i purchased on ebay. i have to take some new pirctures. i added drilled brake levers which i think really add to the looks. i ride this bike every sunny afternoon about twelve miles. it puts a smile on my face everytime i ride it. 100cm wheelbase is nice and tight for a 63cm bike. handles like a surgeon,s knife.

by the way the paramount and the pro were great bikes in their own right (wish i had never sold them), just feel the fit and finish of this particular bj is excellent, although i understand that is not always the case. the handling from the tight geometry is what really does it for me.

It isn't really a "classic" but here is picture of a 1983 Fuji Dynamic 12 that was rescued from the dump. I painted it, redid the bearings, put on a new front derailler and front wheel, seat, brake hoods, and tires. It rides really nice and is surprisingly light for what it is. I gave it to my son. I put quite a bit of time and money into but had a lot of fun doing it.

My Raleigh Super Course from about 1982 or so. I bought it new and replaced some parts like the cranks and brakes with Shamino 600 parts within a year or so from when I got it so those parts are also vintage. The wheels are more recent. I still ride it for more casual rides and errands.

It may not have been a classic when you found it in the dump -- but you certainly turned it into one. Beautiful work you did there.

Some of my classic steel - in no particular order:

1979 Rudge DL-1 Roadster (Rudge Maroon)
1970 Raleigh Twenty (Coffee)
1971 Raleigh Sports (all gold edition)
1973 Raleigh Sports ('Forest Green', a complete resto and repaint over Raleigh's sick 1970's slime-colored Bronze Green)
1974 Raleigh Sports (Coffee)

That's just a few of them.

That has to be my favorite collection on BF. Very nice stewardship of some excellent bicycles.
Can't wait to see how the "club" bike will turn out.

figured I'd get some of my other old crappage up before I start another round of updating.
This is my '76 Pepe Limongi, built under the Paris Sport auspices while he was in the states at Vic & Micke Fraysse's place in Ridgefield Pk - Park Cycle. Ridden and mostly raced from '76 to '82, then just training and regular riding service.
Pepe, as he told, had worked under Herse for about 11 years, then did a few decades on his own, before coming to the US and building at Mike's place. From names he rattled off, it sounded as though he laid torch to the frames of many venerated pros, including a few WCs.
AT the time he was building this one, he was also building with 753, one of the first few in the States to be certified by Reynolds to do so. Reynolds, apparently held him in quite high regard.
This particular frame is some special variant of 531DB and as it is currently built up (fairly heavy wheels) it still weighs in at a nimble 19 lbs 11 oz. With Racing wheels (Campy LF hubs, 15/16 Robergels & 280 Record Du Monde rims) and record pedals w/Clips it weighted in at 19lbs -8 oz.
I wrote Reynolds about the tubeset back around '80 and got a reply, but the letter is currently safely tucked somewhere (where I can't find it). Anyway I remember it clearly states which tubeset this might be that they supplied to Pepe. Not to blurt out something totally incorrect, I'll leave that mystery open til I find the letter.
Frame dims are 59cm ST - 58 TT, 75 x 74 Head & seat angles, 408 chainstay, rake ? it works
Currently has my original, 1st set of 'racing' hubs on it - Campy Tipos - with SuperChamp Gentlemen rims (off-road weight clinchers - they've lasted this way since '82 )
1st gen Suntour Cyclone RD put on in '78, way original Campy NR FD, Campy most everything else, except the seatpost is a Saveedra because the ST needs a 26.4 - not many of those around then or now...
13-18 corncob, Oh, Modolo Q-race stem recently put on so I could liberate the Cinelli for one of the Colnagos. Cinelli 38 Giro bars. I like 'em close, less spooky on a very nimble front end. Vetta saddle - nice.
Current chain rings are still 53/44, but those are coming off 2nite and a compact set 50/34 will likely go back on.
I plan on riding this as much as my Super, in the coming months.
This was a repaint from back in '91 when I had the 'Softride' frame built. Al did a few mods before repainting - top of BB guides were removed and re-routed under the BB and through the chainstay to exit just in front of the rear dropout.
Anyway, the reason I keep this bike is that its prolly the closest thing to riding a real track bike on the street. Just a kick.
Oh, and those are the original tire-savers from '78

a very nice bike. If it weighs in the 19 lb range it'd most likely be made of 531 SL (same gauge as 753, but made with 531 steel).

This is my first roadie, a late 70s-early 80s Miele that I got for 40$CDN from a nieghbor. I added a new seat, a new stem, new bar tape, a pump and a new seat bag because the old seat was sorta rotted and the tape was coming off. Last year was my first season with it and I found it to be quite a change from the hybrid i had before. It's quite light, although I don't know the exact weight. The things I put on may not be "vintage" but I found them to be more comfortable than the originals for everyday use. It has a bad front wheel on it for the winter because it's on a wind trainer in the basement (and performance isn't an issue).

For your first roadie, you certainly made a good choice.

I really love the color, BTW.

Sorry for the (slightly) off-topic post, but I thought I would wander on over to the classic rides side from the fixed gear/single speed board and make a quick appeal:

I am working on a new site dedicated to bike photos and bike profiles. There are some gorgeous bikes in this thread - I would really like to get some feedback from classic/vintage riders about the site in anticipation of release (in a week).

If you are interested in testing a new bike photo site, if you are a bike fanatic - please email me at (greg@metanovus.com) or drop me a private message here on BF and I will get you set up and running in no time.

Thanks!
