Hey Chuckk,
Next time you feel a bit generous, you can pick me up a 1970 Olmo w/pantographs and Campy Nuovo Record group! Just a suggestion...Christmas coming up and all...

Chuck, Put me down for a 55-ish cm, early 70's Masi Special. Blue, orange or white.

Thanks,

Eagle Eye.

This bike was originally equipped with Weinmann (Schwinn Approved) center pulls. When Oscar Juner (American Cyclery in San Francisco) reworked it in the late 70s, he put on the Mafac Racers.

Agreed... the Mafacs were the right brakes for this bike!

No offense but the first thing that came to my mind when I read your message was Ned Beatty in that famous American movie classic. You know, the line where porcine sounds are involved and encouraged along with some other adjectives and 'actions'... Ha!

Disclaimer: I don't think any bicycles, vintage classics or department stores, where involved or harmed during the filming of this movie...

YMMV

Well, I'm gathering a sack of stuff for a couple of vintage British bikes and need to know what is most appropriate. I have some Weinmann's left over from something or other, I have a NOS set of M. Racers, I have some Universal 61's. I have a Hetchins (I'm really gonna send it to the painter soon, really soon...) and a Dunelt (1957 and 1955, respectively). This maybe should be a separate post, but which brakes would be most appropriate?

Racers on the Hetchins and Universals on the Dunelt... but that's just me. Can't wait to see the finished products!

Every heard of Aragon Bike? Neither have I - but I think it may have been made by Giant. Anyway, a local ebay seller had one for sale (1974 vintage). I went over to take a look and it was in mint condition. The problem was that alll the components were heavy steel (except for the brake levers and calipers). I won the bid and immediately stripped it. I even had to increase the dropout spacing from 120mm t0 130mm to accomodate a "modern" wheel. Anyway, after getting a mixture of used and discounted used Shimano 105 parts from ebay and local used bike stores, I put the bike back together, complete with "fake" Lemond stickers and lightweight rims. Since the picture was taken, I have upgraded to clipless pedals. The ride is great and I like riding it better than my new Felt F70 with aluminum and carbon fiber. The upgrade has made a night / day difference in weight. It is now quite light (I need to weigh it to really find out the new weight) and I don't really notice a difference between this and the Felt. Everything included, I spent about $500 (more than I originally thought!).

Hi,

Here's my 1977 Panasonic Touring Deluxe. I bought it new and continue to ride it to this day although it was stored for nearly 25 years.

I've included one fair picture (all the shadows don't do it justice) in this post but much better detailed pictures can be seen at https://dana60.com/rickko/bikes/pana/

Enjoy!

I've fitted Look 247 pedals. Lovely!

I built it this summer and have so far done about 300 miles on it.

Another view. The paintwork is generally in very good condition considering this frame was used in road races in the West of Scotland.

I bought the frame for £50 and spent hundreds on wheels and gruppo.

My 1964 Flying Scot Continental. Built of 531 (handbuilt in Glasgow), and refinished a few years ago.

Campag mechs (front unknown, rear Chorus), Campag chainset, Campag d/t levers Campag hubs with Stainless db spokes and Mavic open pros (handbuilt by me!)running 25mm 700c Vittorio Rubino pro tyres. Generic saddle with Campag aero post. I'm going to fit a Brooks sooner or later.I also have the bag support shown on the Flying Scot site but haven't fitted it.

It has pump pegs for a Bluemels pum (see near the gear levers) and I have the pump too, but it doesn't inflate to a high enough pressure so I use a frame fit.

Weinman centre pull brakes with levers. Cinelli Stem and bars.

It's my "high days and holidays bike"

When I was about 15 I got into day touring and I was riding my gas pipe bike into Glasgow and met a guy riding a beautiful blue bike. i FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. The first time I'd seen a Flying Scot. It took me 25 years but I finally got one.

I have it hanging on the garage wall when it's not being used and I sometimes just go in and stare at it. It just looks so beautiful to me

I plan to change the brakes at some point.
