I'll try to get my camera out in the next couple of days. I'm over due for snapping some bike pics anyway.

My 1974 Schwinn Suburban, much too small for me, sold last week for a good bit more than I bought it for. Still, I love that color with the black stripes & decals. Hopefully soon my budget will allow for one of my remaining two bikes to be functional again.

You need to click on "reply with quote" instead of reply so people will know who you're referring to. It's right next to the reply button.

Ray's photography is world class, and he has gorgeous bikes. This fellow has a bit broader collection of bikes that he rides as regularly as one can when they have this many. I know this because I've ridden with him before (he's a pretty strong rider at that).

I've posted this before. 1981 Raleigh Super Record. Since the picture was taken, I've changed the bar tape and saddle, and added clipless pedals. I ride it regularly.

Very nice but the first picture doesn't show up for me. I have to get my Marinoni repainted and I want to go with a very similar paintscheme to yours but with black decals, something like this one:

I'm having bad luck with image hosters today. That seems to be the only image I can get to show up. Was something changed on the server migration?

My latest completed project is a mid-80s Univega Competizione frameset powder coated orange and set up as a go-fast single speed: Araya 700c gold-anodized rims, Sugino crankset with drilled 42t ring, Nitto dirt drop stem and flat bars, Brooks Pro saddle. Total weight is about 20.5 lbs.

Way kewl, Neal! What are those bars, anyway? Is this your fifty-buck powdercoat job?

Thanks! Yes, that's the $50 powdercoat (including blasting the frame). The bars are Nitto flat bars sold by Jitensha in Berkeley: https://www.jitensha.com/eng/flatbar05.html

Sorry for the picture, my macbook's camera sucks for detail. Here's my first thrift store bike, its a Suteki from around 1982. I think. I picked it up yesterday tuned it up some, and took it for a bit of a ride. Its a nice ride. I'm planning on changing the tape and repainting the frame.

Also my back wheel is sorta wobbly, how can I fix that?

Mystery Legnano Autocamping

So cool. The only thing I've been able to google is that there is a '67 for sale in Argentina. Mine has a '69 SA AW hub. Original pirelli tires and even a Legnano bell. Campy seat clamp. Oh yeah, it fits inside the trunk of a Chevy Aveo!

This is my 1980 CFX-10 Super Competition that I found, covered in dirt, on CL about a month ago for $150. After much rubbing this is how it turned out. I added new tires and swapped out the Cinelli stem for another I had that fits better, then re-wrapped the bars in vintage ribbon. My friend hooked me up with brake hoods and a Campy NR front derailleur to match the rear. He also had a NOS Reynolds 531 frame sticker (not the correct one, but it will do) that covers up the scratch on the original one. Just did a 50 mile thislast Sat, rides great and it's so quiet.

What kind of wobbly...wobbly because the wheel needs to be true, or wobbly because it's about to fall off the bike?

Its not going to fall off, just out of true a bit. I think a bike shop can take care of that for me.
