Ahhhhhhh, all these beautiful bikes, looking forward into beautiful sunsets, wooded lanes, or cobblestone paths. Idyllic.

Here is the Huffy, staring into the ground, which is cold, wet and snowy

Nice looking Woodrup! The little bit of metalwork pictured is similar to my ‘83 with exception of the fork crown and mine having short point lugs. Is yours a Ten Speed Drive Imports?

Thanks! I got it from the bike pile at a recycling center in very rough condition. Missing fork, wheels, etc with mangled cable guides.
Had some braze on repairs done and a repaint. Good spotting, the fork is not original, I've struggled to find one with a longer crown/dropout length so I can run mudguards. I contacted Woodrup, it's a 1985 "Giro" 531ST tubing.
Been a solid performing companion for many years now, not "racy" but steady.
I'm in New Zealand so probably sold by a UK tourist after a NZ tour.
Tell me about yours please, I've never seen another one except in photos.

Late reply…I’m not not on here enough lately!

In short, mine’s a 753 frameset imported to the US by Ten Speed Drive Imports. I have it built with a mix of Dura Ace 7400 series parts, plus Stronglight 49d crankarms with TA rings. I managed to cram in 32 mm tires, and gearing is 50/28 X 13-30. It rides beautifully. Following is a thread with way too much info if you’re curious…page 3 on this thread has a couple pics as well.

a photo from Allenton Road, just north from Eureka, MO.
It's a wonderfully hilly, nearly rollercoaster-ish road! Nice pavement, scenic, etc.



A mile or two earlier, I could hear some dogs barking... and could see a motorcycle coming up behind me.
Turns out that the motorcycle had a sidecar, and there were two German shepherds in the sidecar!
Once there was enough clear road to pass, the motorcycle began to go around. I gave a little wave, he tooted his horn, and once he was around me, the dogs stopped barking.
A motorcycle sidecar must be heaven for a dog!

County Route 359 in Rensselaerville, NY. The Helderberg range, north of the Catskills. It's all up or down, the only flats are at the top and bottoms.

I was riding around the University of Texas at Dallas today and saw this statue.

Lifesize, bronze statue of Jack Kilby.

"He is the TI engineer who helped invent the integrated circuit, for which he shared the 2000 Nobel Prize in physics, as well as the handheld calculator, among other things."

https://magazine.utdallas.edu/2022/06...-plaza-statue/

If you zoom you can see an early pocket calculator in one hand and in the other hand a schematic of an integrated circuit.

as an electrical engineer, I think I might have to genuflect if I was near the statue!
The progress in shrinking electronics down to the current nanometer scale (or smaller?) is amazing. The initial step of changing from having each transistor in a can and soldered to a circuit board to getting a couple of transistors and a resistor or two on the same piece of silicon was huge!

Taking a photo of Kilby's statue with a phone containing large integrated circuits with millions (billions?) of transistors is a fitting tribute.
