I'd love to see some more pics of this one!

The frame is a 64cm 531c Mercian Professional that I bought in '88. I built it using mostly Campy Nuovo Record, this winter it's getting a full Ultegra group for it's 20th birthday.

Wow! It looks hardly ridden, what is your secret? Do you have a full-on drive side shot? Pretty.

Gorgeous lugs and bike in general. I think it will like the new gruppo.

It would probably prefer something Campy, though.

Very nice.

My first "C&V". Picked up this 1986 Puch 190 a few weeks back at my LBS. Will be my commuter. Not sure it's classic or vintage, but it is old. Been wanting to try an 80s steel 10/12-speed, seems a good place to start. Built in Japan. Shimano SVX drivetrain. Rides very smooth.

That saddle angle makes me cringe.

For some reason I have the urge to buy a puffy vest and grow a mustache.

Thanks - I've been lucky that it hasn't had to take many lumps. Besides, I didn't take pics of where the scratches are! I'll try to get a drive side shot, I didn't take one in that set for some reason.

coelcanth, I built it up back in The Day at my buddy's shop and I found those cups hidden away there, I think you may be right about the lockring being alloy. I'll be stripping it down soon and trying to log the action at https://andyscherer.com/bicycle.aspx so if I can I'll get some closeups of the cups. The bb tangs are a Mercian design feature, they stiffen the bb big-time. I love the lugwork overall.

^ That Puch is very pretty. I would get rid of those grab ons and put some nice cork wrap on the bars. A nicer saddle and it will look much classier, less moustache & vest appeal.

I cannot seem to find out what year it was made, but I am pretty sure it is vintage. It's a Kmart Allpro made in the US (yeah I thought that was weird too) I got it at good will for $20, which isn't too bad considering it needs new tires and inner tubes.

Greetings from NZ. We have some gems down here - if you look carefully. Here's a Zeus professional circa 1976, that I found on a local buy&sell site a coyple of weeks ago. For USD75! The crank and brakes were mk1 Shimano 600, so I replaced them with a NR crank that was kicking around, and some Superbe brakes I found on a wrecked bike at the local dump. The paint is original and in remarkable condition. The rear derailleur is a Zeus criterium with drilled cage. Can't find anything like it on the web. Do you reckon it's been done later to copy the Zeus 2000 look? The frame and forks are Vitus 971 - feels as light as my O'Brien 753, and a very comfortable ride. The rear dropouts are Zeus 2000: the most beautiful in the world IMHO. Sorry if I sound chuffed over this bike - but I'm in L-O-V-E!

Sweet! I had a Zeus Pro that I bought in '73 (USD300 new) before the Mercian above. I never saw a stock Criterium dérailleur with drilled cages, that may have been custom work. Enjoy!

All those old Huffy and Murry(AMF) were made right here in the good ole USA supposably from gaspipe.I guess thats why they took such a beating. Nice find. They are great for a ride to the store with a cheap lock.

Gaspipe, oh, yes.

I procured, refurbished, and sold one of these (almost exactly the same, except green, with white saddle and 24" wheels) at the bike coop. I have picked up some heavy EF Schwinns and other cheapie bikes in my day. But that little green All Pro was the heaviest Madre Fletcher I've ever gotten down from the ceiling hooks. Bout broke my back. Sold it to a tiny Japanese woman who I am absolutely sure weighed less than the bike.

my daily bike is 1980s vintage bianchi limited that has a full 600 set up except for the cinelli stem and post. its a great bike. when i bought it i found a completly original one and found that mine had a few tasteful yet functional mods. its been switched to index and aero levers but he managed to keep it all 600. there is just nothing like an old quality bike
