Not a clue really. Only just started in being interested in vintage racers. I always had mountain bikes and never even rode a racer until two weeks ago. Just bought an 80's Peugeot.

The upside to a thread like this -- the anticipated bike porn.

The downside -- the

The Frame has to be in statndard dimensions and in proportion to the wheels, it has to be Italian, it has to be Red with chrome in a few spots on the frame(preferably the forks), White handlebar tape and a black seat ,and it has to have Campagnolo parts with Ambrosio or Mavic wheels...oh yeah, and no handlebar end Tassles.

Ron Cooper with Rivendell and Velo Orange gear, a timeless look marrying old and new.


René Herse tandem looks good in spite of being 75 years old and rusty.


Vitus 979 is the best looking racing bike to hang weight-weenie CNC components on.
