This is my most recent completed project. It started as a 1974 Viscount frame that I got on Ebay ($2.29 winning bid?!) that had nothing with it. I put on a new Ritchie headset and Tange forks from Harris, a press fit BB and a new set of Bulletproof cranks. I added the Cinelli stem and bars I had laying around, new generic pedals and clips, and an old seatpost I had. I stripped it and did a rattle can paint job in my barn that looks okay until you get up close. All in all I put about $160 in the bike, mostly in the new wheels from my LBS. It rides great, although it feels very squirrelly!

The picture was without the pedals and with an old 144 BCD crank that was too close to the frame, so I switched it out to a 110.

Early 90s Davidson Impulse. My college roommate worked at Elliott Bay Bicycles in Seattle where they make these, I was not able to afford one on my ramen and pabst budget even with the generous employee discount back then but always coveted one...

Then I saw this on ebay a couple of months ago and snagged it for under $600 It is now my commute bike with fenders, ruffy tuffys, brooks b17 and lots more dirt since the pics were taken.

I have a white Davidson Impulse as well and love it. Mine has gotten pretty dirty over the years too.

In the process of painting and rebuilding. Colnago frame built under Windsor in the '50s in Mexico. Late '50s-early '60s Williams track crank to be installed as well as a nice vintage dark brown leather Brooks.

So far...

^^^Thanks Olivia!

I like the top photo in particular! Although, I hate to say this, but that does not look like NYC .

How'd you acquire the Windsor? Are you repainting because the paint was in terrible shape, rust, didn't like the colour?

Sorry about the last post

It has been about five years since I have seen anything like the system they have hear for posting photos.
My bike is an 87 Schwinn Premis with a mfg. date of 8735.
Just after I bought the bike I got some Campagnolo hubs at a great price. I dented a steel rim on another bike, so I got a set of lighter and stronger Campagnolo rims. The derailleurs have been replaced by inferior units because Suntour parts are hard to come by.My Premis is one of the best bikes I have ridden. Nothing handles like high quality steel.

It was in decent shape, I just wanted to make it my own. I found the frame at a small bike store on Avenue C and traded in my old Specialized for it.

We have an 'in search of/want to buy' thread that is stickied near to the top of this forum. Try asking in there for the Suntour parts you want. Someone's bound to have them.

That's as good a reason as any for repainting. I think you made a good deal, too .

Oliviap do you have any more detail on the bike? 50's Colnago built by Windsor in
Mexico sounds interesting ( I didn't think that Windsor started building until very late
60's early 70's).
Avenue C? I'm a Sheepshead Bay guy myself (long time ago).

New stuff for the Cinelli:

Universal brake levers with curlier tips
Fiamme rims
Campagnolo Gran Sport RD with cable adjustment screw
I also respaced the rear hub to 115 from 120 and made it a 4-speed freewhweel (as it was originally). It shifts much better now.

See all pictures here: https://www.h3odesign.com/cinelli1.html

I could be wrong, I've tried to find out information online, but it's all pretty limited. This is what the previous owner told me, but if you know more, do share!!
