I'm pretty proud of how it turned out, being my first restoration

Looks good! A lot easier to get a Wald basket on a bike without rod brakes though....

thanks! I suppose, as you may have had trouble with the intial installation, I find the brake cables a bit of a nuisance when loading the basket.
Yours has a nice, clean look, very classy

I got bored on Saturday and built this with parts I had sitting around:



mid 80's columbus tubed Gitane, Mavic ssc, rear der, brakes, brooks, mustache bars with single suntour bar end, sugino single speed crank, 7 spd rear, 700c Mavic wheelset, shorty fenders.

few more pics here:

https://www.brian-payne.com/gallery/m...?g2_itemId=684

Today I took it on a 30 mile HILLY ride and it did great. The 48t - 7 speed combo was a tough ride on some of the hills though.

You're one of a very few people who have a Brooks Imperial just "sitting around".

Nice job with the bike. For my knees, a 40 or 42 tooth chainring would keep me happier with our hilly terrain - if I were to run a bike with only one chainring.

1973 Raleigh Professional Track

1973 Raleigh Professional Track Bike
59 cm Frame, handbuilt by Carlton Cycles. I love how the candy apple red is beautifully offset by the blue on white panel of the downtube, with the subtle gold border and gold pinstriping around the lugs.



I love this bike, but I don't think I'll be keeping it for long--it just doesn't get the attention it deserves

Campagnolo Pista component group throughout, except pedals which are Campy Record road (black). 170mm cranks with 50T chainring, Campy 18 tooth steel cog. Fiamma Ergal 280g tubular rims with Specialized sew-ups. Cinelli pista bars and sloping stem. Selle San Marco Era K saddle in matching blue.

Maybe someone has interest in this one?

1986 KHS John Howard Team Professional. Built with mostly Campy SR, NR headset and Veloce hubs. Rebadged with Speedwell decal kit...because I like name and how they looked.

Agreed. I have this exact bike--1973. Mine's got a Baylis repaint however. If you're thinking of parting it out (not that I'm advocating it), I'd definitely be interested in the stem and bars.

Just bought - '80's OLMO with complete Galli Gruppo

Just bought 80's production OLMO with complete Galli Gruppo for $450. Haven't received yet.

Is it worth it?

I like the OP's Olmo better (not a huge fan of black parts), but someone could have one that is pretty similar for $400 (not mine, no affiliation):

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/bik/904696319.html



I think they are both great deals!

Congrats,

Bob

Unknown Crescent Beast

Probably early 70's or thereabouts, maybe folks with more expertise in these matters can narrow it down. This was not the Crescent high-end Pepita model with butted frame and Campy components but an entry-level model with ugly welds but the really distinctive paint scheme and garish decals. Pretty much all French components: Huret Allvit ders and dt shifters, Mafac Racers, AVA stem and bar, Falcon 6-speed freewheel and an Ashtabula-style one-piece crank and chainwheel rig, also French but the stamped printing is just too small for my old eyes to parse. If anyone could identify the brake levers--they have an 'F' in a circle I'd be grateful.

Look at that - a one-piece crankset that adapts TA Pro 3 Vis rings onto it!

My 1974 Record

Here's my classic ride... Not a clean as most of y'alls, but ridden often and I love her. Definitely not original, but I have some interesting old upgrades
  1. Shimano Crane derailleur
  2. Viscount sealed bearing hubs
  3. Shimano 105 crankset with Biopace chainrings
  4. SR Laprade seatpost
  5. Skip Huysak repaint (1980) in DuPont Imron

I've owned her since new (when I was a young pup in High school).
