1970s Condor Superbe Bike Pron. Pics and video

Hey guys,
Im pretty much finished with her. She needs different hoods. Those are on the way. Check out this build. It turned out excellent. The paint and such was in good shape and so were the components.
Video: Check out the last picture. My neighbor calls his unit the "Condor's nest"

Another superb build! Love the colors of the frame, set off with the gorgeous chromed lug work. What a beautiful frame to hang those wonderful Campy components. Enjoy it and ride in good health!

That is stunning! I love chrome lugs and I love ornate lugs.Great paint job too.

Truly beautiful John. You are doing justice to the memory. I love the "cream sycle" tape, really works but I get the gum is more proper. Will still look great.
You have my address if you need to clean out your space !

I got this as part of a collection. A viewer emailed me and hooked me up .. Here is a video of me picking up the collection.

Splendid, great colors on a unique bicycle. Insane lugs and that saddle really works well here.
