Like older women they are graceful and all knowing and will teach us about life.

I have a number of older ladies that teach me about life:

The first is my newest, a De Rosa team replica. Columbus Slx and Super Record.
Hi,

Beautiful De Rosa. A local sports bar had one on the wall with some paraphernalia signed by the Cannibal himself. Unfortunately the restaurant burned down last year (along with a lot of other sports memorabilia).

BTW, I still ride with 32 spoke wheels most of the time. Very reliable and if a spoke breaks, still very rideable.

Thank you. The man spends a fair bit of time here throughout the year and I run into him a couple of times through the year usually.

I thought next winter I would get him to sign it and then clearcoat it.

This one stays in my garage, not going anywhere.

A Geoffrey Butler which came to me sad and neglected. It appears to be early '70's (?). This is just fun.

A Dave Moulton I just got. 1976, built in England before the Master moved. Sadly, too big for me.

One of the famous BF Titans. Build date - who knows, though this is spaced at 126 mm.

A surprisingly nice ride.

Heres mine, sorry about the pics it was stormy and overcast when they were taken, I will update with better ones soon. Pictured are my newly restored Ochsner road bike and my vintage TT bike, a Schwinn Prologue. I will also update with a few pics of my other vintage rides.

A Miyata 1000. Bought the frame and fork for $75. Looks to be early '80's.

Single speed, just 'cause.

A Derek Bailey from 1985, C-Record.

Derek was a framebuilder at Holdsworth in the UK before coming to Canada. He went to co-found a little company called Rocky Mountain Cycles.

This is my all time favourite and rides like a dream.

"newer", and yet not so much.

A 1999 Cramerotti Rosso ( the name should make sense). I like this bike because it is steel, has a steel fork and is classic in style even though newer.

Always nice to see whin someone values the less than top-end vintage rides. Another cyclist had once told me that he actually prefers going after the more "blue collar" bikes - the ones which real world, working class, enthusiasts had actually ridden - rather than the fanciest pro-quality racing bikes of their day.

The British "Club Racers" of the 1950s to eally '60s were really very well thought out machines. As with this example, they were wonderfully suited for comfortable long rides (or races) through varied road and weather conditions. Mudguards [fenders] actually kept your feet/legs as dry as possible and saved your components from getting prematurely degraded by the inevitable abrasion of any tossed up grit, mud and road grime. I notice this bike even has the brazed-on fitting on the right front fork for attaching a generator/dynamo powered head lamp - a great little detail.

I would definitely call this a "Keeper". I am always looking for vintage framesets which have ample clearance for mudguards and road-worthy tires. Surely makes my riding far more pleassurable when I don't have to mess with frequent punctures on wimpy tires when I've rambled 50 miles out into the countryside.


It's always a tough call whether to "restore" or simply resurrect an old warrior. Either someone had truly pampered that Gran Sport or had devoted a lot of time an passion into his restortion. I love it!

So originally i was going to post this as a "should i ride this or keep it new?" but after a crash that totaled my daily ride (khs track -- frame cracked) it is going to be a few weeks until the replacement is ready so on the road it goes.

the story of the bike and more pictures are here

I found this one at a thrift store a while back. Originally I was gonna strip it for parts, but it was my size and once I overhauled it I couldn't tear it up. It's a Ross Aristocrat, Ishiwata 024 tubing. Shimano 600 Arabesque components, SR bar/stem, Sunshine hubs/Araya rims. A very nice rider, in excellent overall condition. I'm unsure if it is a Kellog/Redclay Ross, if anyone knows for sure, you can fill me in. Gonna keep it, at least for a while, either way.

Here's one I pulled off a junk pile at a construction site. It's a Bridgestone Antares L.D.T. (Long Distance Touring) with half-step gearing, and canti's. I heard some tweaker rode it to the job one night, ditched it, and drove away with the electrician's service truck full of tools. It had 20 years of grime all over it, but everything cleaned up real nice. Too big for me, I sold it to a tall friend who wants to get into road riding for $50. I wonder what it would have ebayed for?

Another winter project completed. Frame is Guerciotti Strada with Tretubi Aelle. This was the second frame I bought, the first being my red Lejeune. Built it, then decided to change its direction, so to speak. Sugino triple, Suntour Cylcone GT RD, Shimano Sora FD, Suntour Cyclone shift levers, Nitto Technomic stem and Nitto bars, Diacompe aero levers and Campy Victory brakes. Campy Record low flange laced to Mavic rims. Good bike for country road touring, although I guess if I were serious I would put some 700 X 28s on it. Maybe later. More pics at the link in my signature under Guerciotti Strada.

Raleigh Supercourse I got free at a yardsale last summer. I gave it to a friend, but he didn't like it, and it was mouldering in his garage, so Saturday I tore it down to bare frame, and gave it a thorough CLA.

It's a 1978 Raleigh Supercourse. Stock except for the fork, and shifters. Pedals are MKS Sylvan, and seat is an old Suede Turbo.

Not sure what I'll do with this bike. I really like it, but I have too many bikes. All I put into it so far is new tires, brake pads, 1 shifter cable, and a lot of fresh grease. Still to do bar tape probably red or orange. I was thinking about moustache bars, and Suntour bar cons, but It's fully functional as is.

Raysports Japanese flavored

A spur of the moment purchase at A-1 Bicycles resulted in this bike. Ray sold me his last on hand 56cm (54cm c2c) Super Corsa frame. I had some nice Suntour Superbe components from my red LeJeune, so decided to give this Raysport a Japanese flair.
  • Superbe Pro crankset with NOS rings
  • Superbe NOS bottom bracket
  • Superbe Pro FD, RD, and NOS levers
  • Superbe Pro headset
  • Superbe brakes and NOS Superbe levers
  • Superbe pedals and KKT clips
  • SR World Custom bars and SR Royal stem
  • Campagnolo seatpost
  • Selle Italia Flite Titanium saddle
  • Early Dura Ace small flange hubs
  • Mavic MA2 rims

With the vertical dropouts, the wheel base is 38 inches. It's a nice ride. More pics at the link that is my sig later tonight.

Gitane

Here are pictures of a Gitane Tour de France that I picked up last week. The seller is moving and didnít want to move this along with his other bikes. I was able to get it for 50 bucks. It currently has Suntour Cyclone 7000 derailleurs and Shimano 105 brakes. It has what I believe to be the original Mavic rims with Campagnolo Gran Sport hubs. I think I read in another thread that tubular rims where an option on these bikes. Is this true? My dad just gave me a set of 60ís Mavic tubular rims that he had on his 1968 Peugot. Iím not sure that I want to move to tubulars though. The front wheel shown in the picture is a newer Mavic rim with flat blade spokes. It is now on my Raleigh. Iím looking for some other bars to replace the aero bars that are on it. I also want to replace the Look pedals with SPD compatible pedals. The paint is pretty decent except for the top tube. There is rust where the cable clamps were. I want to prep and touch up just the top tube once I find some paint that is a close match. Iíd like to have the frame professonaly painted but thatíll have to wait. Unfortunately the saddle isnít the original leather one but it works. Does anyone know what diameter stem and seatpost these came with?

Thanks

Joe C.
