Don't be surprised when a lot of us post our Eddies under both both E and M.

I think I'll send Grant an email asking him what the "A" in A Homer Hilsen stands for. I'll be sorely disappointed if he answers back "It's an indefinite article."

But seriously, @fender1 , that is one sexy plain grey Homer

My first 10-speed was an Atala (pronounced AH-tal-ah, with the emphasis on the first syllable) Giro D'Italia. This isn't mine; I grabbed the image off the interwebz. This one has Universal brakes. Mine had Weinmann calipers with steel levers shaped like Universal levers. The bike had a hi-ten frame, steel rims, Gnutti hubs, a plastic saddle with no padding, and Simplex Prestige derailleurs. Mine was stolen from me violently in the bad old days of New York City, 1976. I had my ham radio strapped to the Pletscher rack, so I lost my two favorite things in one quick moment. I was 15 years old.

In 1982, I bought an old Atala Competizione frameset from a friend and built it up myself, building the wheels, too. My friend had had the frame painted by CyclArt, so it was all black with no decals. The squirrely handling caused an over-the-handlebars crash, and I decided to sell it.

Note the Huret Multito odometer on the front axle. Also note that the bike had one righthanded brake caliper and a lefthanded one.

Funny, I had my first "10 speed" violently stolen from me as well, and it was likely the same year, maybe give or take 1. Truth be told, mine "fell off the back of a truck", (hot)as did so many things in NYC back then when the mob ruled the streets. It was just the way it was, none of us looked at it like it was even wrong. We've come a long way here! So karma? Yeah, I guess.

Eh, it was to big for me anyway!

Sometimes I can be an airhead for days at a time. I saw the thread a couple days ago and thought, "Neat. If only I had something." Turns out, I do...

1977 Argos that figuratively fell into my lap in late 2017 while I was looking for something entirely different (that I also already had).

Nicely thinned lugs and great joinery... if only my photography were at close to the same level.






and here it is built up, at the turn-around point of a ride. Despite the relatively short wheelbase, it isn't twitchy at all. (yeah. the cables are a bit longer than ideal)

I've got an Apollo that , if it didn't look so crappy, might look like Randy's. So let's just look at Randy's again and pretend.

Even got a "double A" for you. Pictured here as found a few years ago, is an Azzuri.



Azzuri is the house brand of former pro Jan van Katwijk's shop in Waalre, NL. The shop still exists, but I don't think they use the decals anymore. Jan is one of three brothers who were all professional cyclists some forty years ago.



This one is actually a rebranded Alan 'donna', hence the double A.

...I'm not sure why, but even here in the NorCal Bay Area, you hardly ever run across Argos bikes. I wasn't even gonna post a photo of mine, but you have inspired me. I should ride it more.

My Argos came from that neck of the woods. The fellow I bought it from got it as a complete bicycle from American Cyclery, snagged the parts, and I got the too-small-for-him frame after he was through.
