1960 Legnano Gran Premio

My 1960 Gran Premio, as before, updated with new (old stock) wheels / tires / bartape / headset. Much better!

What kind of large, yellow weapon is behind your bike in the 2nd picture?

This is my '86 (?) Gazelle Champion Mondial AA. I plan to build her up with a complete Suntour Superbe Pro group. As you can see, I already have the crankset and I've just acquired an FD. But I was anxious to get her out on the road so I have temporarily set her up as a fixed gear. It's absolutely a dream to ride: fast, responsive, smooth.

My 1960 Holdsworth Monsoon, my friend salvaged the frame from a skip fire damaged,as it was too big for him he gave it to me and I had Mario Vaz [an ex Holdsworth painter] re-spray it for me.

I rebuilt it with modern components for now but I'm gradually finding bits at bike jumbles to do it justice.

Yeah ... I spent many hours operating one of those. They are fun at first, until you see the row of logs you need to to split is 100 yards long, six feet tall and your wife's Granddad takes pleasure in cutting down the biggest white oaks in the nearby woods (I don't think he liked anything in the woods to be older than him and he was out there cutting until he was 89). Makes for a large piece of wood that's hard to handle (no wize cracks). I remember splitting some logs 10 or more times to get them to fireplace size.

That bike in front is really nice too!

1975 Fuji Restoration/Rebuild

This is a 1975 Fuji S-10S I bought about 2 months ago. I stripped it down to the bare frame, had it sand blasted and powder coated by a local shop certified to work on NHRA certified frames. When I finished the first time, the only things NOT original were the freewheel, seat, bar tape and cables. The first ride revealed that the center pull brakes were very insufficient by today's standards so I had the brakes replaced for safety reasons. Original bike cost $25, I figure I put another $200 in to the bike. I have a new set of drop bars (46 cm) on order. The originals were nice but very narrow and I have broad shoulders. I'll post more pix when I'm finished customizing. I can already say that she rides like a dream!

T-Mar knows a lot about that brand of bike. If you post this as it's own thread, he'll be sure to see it.

We'd love to see photos, too. It's the one with the rhinestone badge, made in the 1970s?

It came with Suntour Cyclone derailleurs and shifters, Dia Compe GX500N brakes, Sakae SAC-310 forged alloy crank. I love it. Picked it up from an old japanese man in Pasadena in nearly perfect condition. You can get the original brochure for this bike over at www.vintage-trek.com
