Don't see where I joined the party here yet, truly hard to believe.

I have a chrome Paramount frame that is a bit small and the chrome is a bit marginal in some places so it languishes for quite some time now.

Here's the Chrome Ritchey again.

Also languishing as well.

Oury grips and Mafac tandem canti's on the front slated for this as well.

I've got a pair of smoke chrome Austro-Daimlers.
1983 Austro-Daimler SLE

1983 Austro Daimler Superleicht
Campagnolo Record and Super Record components on a smoke chrome Reynolds 531 Professional frame.
It's my lightest lugged steel bike.

Austro Daimler Puch Vent Noir II from around 1981 but not positive on year.

It came to me as a frame only.

I had one a dozen or so years ago that was too tall .

I mostly built this one up with parts I had.

It's a terrific riding bike for me and I'm enjoying it a lot.

Those are 700x36 tires.
