This build happened as I wanted a reliable 'Eroica' qualified bicycle to meet my needs at 70+ years.
This custom bicycle was built for Eroica events. Although classically inspired the lightweight steel frameset is up to date in terms of functionality and safety.

The frame / fork was hand built in Canada by Giuseppe Marinoni and features brazed on bosses for down tube shifters, front derailleur hanger and top tube guides for the rear brake cable while the frame is 130 mm at the rear.



Brian Chewter of Central Cycle (Hamilton) built the wheelsets and assembled the bike with a mix of vintage and modern components (all in silver) to complete the classic look.

Frame: - classic steel lightweight road bike

Tubing: - Columbus SL with silver soldered lugged construction.

Fork: - 700c classic steel road fork with lugged fork crown.

Wheelsets:

Clinchers - Hplus Son TB14 rims, Campagnolo Chorus hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, Challenge Pro Strada (25 mm hand made clincher) and lightweight butyl tubes.

Tubulars – Ambrosio Montreal, Campagnolo Chorus hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, Veloflex Vlaanderen (27 mm tubular).

Groupset and Finishing Kit: - Campagnolo Potenza drivetrain with Diacompe Ene Ciclo shifters, 3T stem, Deda handlebar and seatpost, Campagnolo Super Record brakes, levers and pedals, Brooks Professional saddle and bar tape.

Paint: - Custom paint work in metallic Grenade blue with white barres and Marinoni in red, head badge and G, Marinoni signature also in red – all paint and no decals.

Details: Frame has chromed rear triangle, chromed top of seat stays with panto ‘Marinoni’ filled in red paint. Chromed fork with panto ‘M’ on the crown filled in red paint.
Welcome aboard, glad you found us. Great list and descriptions, however, "pics or it didn't happen"

Go around, say Hi or comment to get 10 posts, then bring em on.

Does a fillet-brazed, steel, [Dennis] Bushnell track frameset circa 1992-1993 count? Saved from the recycling bin in the sky by the eagle-eyed Recycle & Reuse staff at our local non-profit bike shop, it being a 62cm meant is was large enough (as track fit goes) for me to ride. Graphics are incredibly minimal and nondescript. A skull sticker covered the "B" on the head tube, which I immediately removed. Chris King 1 1/8" threaded headset. I have it posted on the Single Speed / Fixed Gear subforum, and pretty much no one in the whole world, including the guys at R+E where he worked pre-retirement, and elsewhere, know about his non-tandem and non-eccentric bottom bracket days. Well, apart from building frames for the 1984 US Olympic Team. The headset narrows the time period. The frame is pretty darn light, with some cool details apart from the seamless fillet brazing. I still need to touch up the paint in the back, but I am slowly sourcing parts to make it velodrome-worthy again!

Just getting started on this Frank Paino custom built Columbus SL frame. 1980 give or take a year will be the most current build I'm working on.
It's going to be a proper period correct build with 5 speed Suntour Superbe

I'm seeing a few 2000's here, so I guess they are edging towards vintage. My beloved steel Bianchi got killed by a car in 2002, and I needed a bike for an upcoming ride, so I grabbed this 2002 Specialized Allez for $399 on closeout at Performance. At first I hated the aluminum frame. After a change to carbon fork, the ride was better. It was my transition bike from vintage to modern, I guess. My first bike with brifters, 8 speed Sora triple. I have older bikes, and newer ones. This is my tweener I guess. I've tried to sell it a few times, but no deal, so it's my backup bike, my bank or post office run bike, and gets out on occasional group rides. I'm OK without selling it, but I could use more garage space.

On a run to the little sidewalk library.

Overlooking the 110 Freeway, downtown LA.

For the ones I've posted here before:
I'm also fond of the Worksman I completed a year or 2 ago. It's "modern" in that it has a 7 speed IGH & index shifting. But mostly I'm just showing it off as a restoration/cool old bike.


Also really like my 1972 & 1974 Ultegra 6800, carbon forked Schwinn Varsities. Both of which I've shown here before.

20190218_050706 by Richard Mozzarella, on Flickr

I recently "down graded" a Raleigh R600 to downtube shifters. Then matched some period correct RX100 brake levers to the RX100 calipers I found at the co-op. Then I managed to piece together a matching Ultegra Hollowtech triple crankset & derailleurs from bits I've been hoarding for about 3 years. Maybe I'll leave the 9 speed cassette...I dunno. With the polished Weinmann 28 spoke deep dish wheel set, it looks pretty sharp. All 22 pounds of it. I still need a sunny day to get some pictures.
I'm not usually a fan of modern 4 spoke cranks, usually seen in black. Maybe its the lighting or the green frame paint, but yours is really striking. Did you strip and polish a black crank? I'm not a fender and rack guy either, but it is a great looking bike!

My most modern bike

Tie of sorts...

My early 1990's Gitane Team Bike. I got the Columbus ELOS frame from a seller in the UK and built it up with mid range Shimano components. It was supposed to have been raced by a sponsored amateur team in France.



By the early 90's Gitane stopped painting their Team and Team Replica bikes French Racing Blue and switched to black and white spatter paint jobs. Same frame except pinto paint scheme.



This one I know the provenance because I bought the frame new. It was a 1992 Paramount OS frame that had been on display at a LBS for over 15 years. I checked the records at Waterford and this was one of the last frames built before Schwinn went under. It's made of True Temper OS tubing and the ride is brisk. I spoke with Richard Schwinn when he was visiting the shop where I bought it and he said that the frame was built with criterium geometry.

Thanks for the compliment!

I did strip it. I used a solution mixed to a ratio of 6 ounces lye per 1 gallon of water. I've learned that when you process 1 part the black tends to transfer to the next part, so I did each part seperate in it's own individualy with new solution. Say, 1 quart water & 1.5 oz of lye in the bottom of a bucket. Each part only took a couple of minutes.

That took care of 99% of the black anodizing Shimano uses on Ultegra 6800.

The inboard side of the big ring & inboard side of the driveside crank arm were painted dull grey/black. I left the painted portion of the big chain ring alone but hit crankarm with 500, 800, then 1200 grit sandpaper.

Before using Mothers Aluminum & Magnesium polish to polish all the bits, I painted the inboard portion of the crankarm spider with Humbold Silver Enamel paint from the local Hobby/Model shop. I think a thimble full & a brush set me back about $3

All told it took about a week of doin' & kept my & my coffee table busy while I watched Alex Trebek & Pat Sajack entertain on the tee-vee.

But seriously, @Barrettscv, can you explain what the question is? I have several bikes which might qualify.

Yeah I don't get it either.

I've followed this thread from the beginning hoping to see a trend or pattern, but there are bikes from a lot of periods with all kinds of components from vintage to modern, so yeah, I'm befuddled as to what qualifies a bike to be shown here.

But the thread is up to 4 pages now, so a lot of people seem to get it!

It's a math problem and many bikes will qualify. Infact, all you need is a bike that is older than 2005, and that is literally every C&V bike owner.

Here is the algorithm: List your bikes in reverse chronological order, eliminate all bike built after 2005 to determine the subgroup, then select 1 or more of the most recent from the subgroup.

I have noticed it does ride very well, definitely a goto rider for me right now.

Sheesh. I've been trapped into more math since following the C&V thread than I've done since high school. But since the "new math" we endured back in the '60s is now vintage maybe it will work out. Here is my '95 carbon tube Trek with parts from six different countries.
