I guess I can add three more since I last posted in 2023


Colnago C40, finally a C.F> bike that rides like quality steel!

Colnago Master Extra Light, a truly beautiful machine

Moser Leader Ax, Steel done right

I turned this into a rideable bike thanks to this site and its members.



1973 Bottecchia Professional
Because I wanted a Campagnolo equipped Eye-tally-ann



1990 ST400
I’ll probably never tour, but it is a comfy ride with the B17.

I don’t think I’ve posted the bikes of blue at the 66. These are all very fine rides.

The 1980 Pro Miyata, awaiting Nitto Mod 55 bars. This was one of the first Japan bikes with recessed mount calipers and aero levers, miss match oem Shimano and AGC.


Here is the Serotta


The F. W. Evans is ready for test ride, I apologize about the white and red thing in front of.


André Bertin all cleaned up, pictured with 20 mm clinchers. This now is sporting 32mm with room to spare.


Jack is not ready, Eddy is almost ready.

Four blue bikes: an early 70s Fuji Finest, a 70s Sekine SHS 271, a '79 Trek 510, and an '85 Cannondale ST 400. These are 4 hardworking bikes that have seen a lot of use after I rebuilt them. The Sekine is mainly original and it is my commuter; the other bikes have been modded to suit my needs.

1990 Raleigh USA Technium Peak, their top of the line MTB that year. I sold this a few years ago then a couple months later saw the frame hanging from the ceiling of the bike collective. Apparently the guy just wanted it for the parts. I recently reacquired it from the collective and am now building it with parts from another donor bike:



And my other blue bike, a 1998 KHS Summit:

This has been here before but not in this version. Not the right wheels but I won't have them built before May is over so this mongrel set will have to do.

The closest I have ever come to owning a blue bike is red, white, and blue, which is not a bad thing with Memorial Day and Fourth of July parades, etc. coming up.

I really like the Libertas and the Della Santa, but those gear ratios are to high and tight for me.
