well

i got the bike cleaned and lubed. it's Nashiki Custom Sport. $25.00 georges and a little work. plus a new front inner tube. still need a rear brake cable and rear tire and rear inner tube. the rear tire is basically a racing slick, no tread at all. the rear inner tube in a slow leaker despite my attempts with slime. any way you can see a few pics at https://revelstone56.tripod.com/index.html. here's one for fun.

Not sure of the cutoff date, here. This is (pretty sure) a '91. Owned it since new. Rode it as a sport-tourer for a while, then pressed it into racing duty (how it gained clipless pedals), and am now in the process of converting it into touring (700X32 tires; rack next).


If you look closely, you can see that I've moved the dropouts back ~2cm for clearance (don't worry; fully reversible).

Latest buy, by way of USAZorro. 1984, I think, Miyata Two Ten, and in my size!
6-sp Shimano (ratcheting) long cage, Avocet Touring saddle,
funky angled Sakae Road Champion bars, OEM rack.
Dia Compe cantilevers in great shape.
Signature triple crank, Shimano FD, SR stem.
I put the Avocet 27x1's on the Araya alloys, will very likely be swapping in a set of Weinmann concave rims.

I've got it clean, now it's time to go component by component and make it really nice.

I have no idea if I'll keep it, or when I'll have time to tour, so I'm entertaining ideas.

Next project: Peugeot mixte.

Got this a few weeks ago.
This REPCO Superlite, I believe, is a late 80's tri bike (AWESOME PAINTJOB)
Shimano Exage components
It was filthy when I got it, so I kinda cleaned it up and turned into a ghetto singlespeed (hopefully, I can get the freewheel off soon)
It's now my daily trusty commuter

The non-drive pic was unintentional, apologies

Repco is an national automotive parts supplier [REplacement Parts COmpany] that also bought bikes from overseas, re-labeled them & sold them in relatively large numbers across Australia.

There seems to be a strong localised following here & this link to the "Repco Appreciation Society" thread should give you some idea.
I have a 1984 Superlight myself, but only because it was gifted to me. Due to the fact that I have too many good bikes already, I wouldn't have spent actual cash money to buy it.

Anyway, have a look, & a read, & possibly join in the Repco fervour that is brewing in your brother country.

Beautiful bike! (a fellow anesthesiologist, I presume?)

Nice bike. And I have to say I have never seen the "Bike On the Sofa" picture before.

Hey everyone! Might as well make this first post a good one...

I came across a 1969 Raleigh Grand Prix on eBay about a week and a half ago, and it was too good to pass up. The previous owner converted it to a fixed gear, but left the rear cassette and chainrings intact (when finances are in my favor I plan on changing these out). After some intensive cleaning, a shellac-ing battle with natural cork tape, and one gorgeous Brooks B.17, the '69 Raleigh isn't looking half-bad:

Gitane

Got this a week ago. It is in good shape, not mint by any means; a nice utilitarian '84 Interclub 12 speed.
It has original Mavic Module >>E<< rims, Gruid(?) bars, Stronglight cranks with 52/42 rings, and Simplex front derailleur.
The previous owner added a Sora real derailleur and Serfas Seca RS FPS tires. And funky Suntour XC-II
pedals.
I put on the cage and lock bracket and am going to replace the Weinmann brakes; they won't stay centered and would rather have dual pivots.
Aesthetically, the decals look cartoonish to me and am wondering if I could order some different Gitane decals.
It may be a beater, but it's my beater.

Another classic (fixed conversion).

My new to me 1988 Kuwahara Shasta which is basically the stripped down version of my Cascade with a triple butted Ishiwata Ex frame instead of the Cascade's quad butted set.

I love these frames.

It rides and rolls out as nicely as it's younger sister and that old Lycett I found has been re-conditioned and installed.



I used a Sugino VP crank and 48 tooth ring for the drive with my old suicide hub which has seen 1000's of km of trouble free on and off road use... and as one can see all the hangers and braze ons are intact.



When I brought it home on Friday I had an old Selle Italia Turbo on it... can you say ass hatchet ?

The frame bag is from where else but MEC (Mountain Equipment co-op).

I think it was $30.00 and they do come in a range of sizes to fit different frames... it has been collecting dust since I bought it and thought it would be perfect for carrying minimal amounts of stuff.

Gorgeous bike. My first ex had a '71 Super Course that I coveted, even though it was too small for me...

My Schwinn LeTour. Bought it on Craigslist. I'm having difficulty in finding the serial number to date it. I'm slowly turning it into my ideal commuter. Gonna put on a longer handlebar stem and maybe switch out to a cowhorn or pursuit handlebar by using a shim adjuster. First I'll see if the longer stem does the trick since my back isn't as flexible as it used to be. Would a flatbar look bad on it if I can find some that fits?
