Hi Steffen

That looks superduper!

You sourced a 1st gen Super Record mech for it ...and SR pedals and headset. Phew... that must have set you back a lot of money, but of course this fine original Peter Serier built Presto frame is worth every cent of it.

What cage is that? The color is good, but it looks later era to me.

Two weeks ago I cycled to Presto in Heemskerk. Overthere they had Prestos from Slesker, Legrand and Serier. One of the Legrand bikes is one of the two pistas that were built for Roy Schuiten's attempt to attack Eddy's world hour record. The example in Heemskerk is finished in a nice blue. Its twin sister was finised in TI Raleigh colours.

The Serier bike in Heemskerk is a very nice ladies example in a beautifull two tone brown.

That bike and 1st gen SR? Looks period incorrect to me, which is almost the same as politically incorrect ...

I saw the steel blue pista bike for Roy Schuiten hanging from the ceiling in the Oostzaan shop about 6, 7 years ago. Impressive, like I want that bike whatever the cost ...

Haven't been on for a few days but I'm very saddened that RIH is closing. The last I heard
was there was some prospect of an apprentice, or someone stepping up and keeping the shop opened.
I'd really hoped that was the case.
I would love to be there for the ride, my 74 would fit right in but I'm going to be in the Caribbean diving.

Well I put in some effort trying to keep this project as period correct as possible The headbadge is an old Presto 'laktransfer' I fitted with Epifanes boatlak and finished with another layer to make it shine. I could have gotten new decals from the store probably as they started to sell a bikes under their own name again this spring but I liked this better.

This SR headset came with the frame, the SR rearmech I still owned ( it was an upgrade I once got for my old Zieleman)
Since my rearmech had pat 77 on it I figured the SR groupset would be allright for this bike.


The rims and hubs are indeed a few years younger. I also owned them already and they survived pretty well and are perfectly straight


This Belleri stem and bar are from the late seventies, they came with these nice Nuovo record levers and really nice hoods. I got them from a friend.

Much of the rest I slowly collected from marktplaats
The SR crankset is also from 77 according to the markings on the arms
The frontmech is a NR four hole version with narrow band probably from 78 ( I didn't know if the SR version was available in 1977)

The SR seatpost (not sure of the age)

The Cinelli Unicantor I treated with 'Rapide ledercreme' ( a grease wich contains some black pigment but doesn't stain as normal shoe shine does, it is a nice trick to restore the looks of the saddle)
The tires are the nice Deda's you suggested, actually they are about the most expensive parts in the end but I think they are the best tires I have on any bike.
The cables are new Shimanos on wich I removed the stupid lettering with aceton.
The Zefal cage came from a big box of cheapo cages in all kinds of colours. This colour match is perfect so they repaced the more period correct silver cage I already had mounted for the time being.

If I find nice looking SR levers I will probably change the NR but I am not in a hurry

Spent most of today putting this RIH "Super" tourer together for the RIH tribute ride, this Sunday in Amsterdam. Anyone else going?

I plan to go. Won't be able to finish the RIH in time, so will probably show up on another rig with Amsterdam origins.

^ Great! So i'll be looking for a baby blue RIH with oars then. And for something built in Amsterdam not being a RIH.

Joining the club, Batavus Professional

Looks like I joined the Dutch Invasion Club last week. Found this Batavus Professional locally on Craigslist:


I'm not very familiar with Batavus. From what I've found on the forum and the internet it looks like a 1985. All the components are Campy, mostly "G.S". Sachs 3ttt stem, Cinelli bars, Diacompe brake levers, Campy hubs with tubular rims, newer seat.

As you can see the frame has a lot of spotty rust. Might be some fairly deep pitting on the chrome chain stay, but nothing very deep and no rust inside the frame from what I've seen. Its not going to be a show bike, but I think it will make a really good vintage rider.

I think this is Columbus SL. Definitely old Columbus labels on the seat tube and fork, but they are pretty beaten up.

Everything works pretty well. I cant quite get my pedals on for some reason, maybe just dirty old threads in the crank. Stem is missing the bolt, but the previous owner has been riding that way for years. Also there is a big wobble in the rear hub, maybe a bent axle.

What do you think?

Hi, very nice Professional! Welcome to the club

What bolt is missing in the stem? That one that clamps the bar or the one that clamps the stem? Do you feel safe with it?

Have your pedals the same thread?

I see several Campagnolo Triomphe parts.

Thanks Elev . . .

I'm pretty excited about the bike. I was able to clean it up enough to give it a short ride after I switched out the original tubular wheels for those on my Miyata. Really nice smooth ride. I was also interested to see that the bike weights about 20.5 lbs as it stands in the pics.

The crank and brakes are marked G.S. and look just like the Campy Gran Sport examples on Velobase. I think it was there that I read that '84 was the last year for Gran Sport, which was then transitioned into the Triomphe group. The seat post and the shifters look like the Velobase Triomphe examples. The RD appears to be a 990.

The stem is missing the long bolt that clamps the stem in the fork. Looks like its been gone for a long time, lots of dust and debris in the hole. I guess the stem is fairly solidly stuck in the fork tube because the previous owner rode it that for years. I haven't tried to knock the stem loose yet. I might let my mechanic take that on. The bike seems to fit me pretty well, so I'm tempted to ride the stem the way it is. On the other hand I'd hate to hit a bump or something at high speed and have the stem come loose.

The pedal thread issue is a little weird. The old Look pedals came out pretty easily. I put in a plain platform pedal in the right pedal hole with no problem, but the left pedal just didn't feel right. It would start, then get harder and harder to turn, so I'd quite after about two threads (maybe 1/5 or less of the way on). Then I tried my usual Crank Bros road pedals, just on the problematic left side. Same result, starts, gets too tight feeling so I don't force it. I've cleaned the threads fairly well but don't have the right tool to clean them really well. Probably get my mechanic to tackle that problem as well. I don't want to trash my crank arms out of inexperience.

2nd Batavus Professional to crawl out into the light this week

This 1984 Professional just joined my stable as a new project. It came with quite a few Campy parts and an extra set of rims. Included Campy pedals, toe clips, & straps, Shifters, front derailleur, Headset, and Hubs. Other parts include a Huret Rear derailluer, Regina Cassette, 3 TTT fluted post, Concor Saddle, Cinelli Stem and Bars, Modolo Brakes, and Ofmega Cranks. The extra tires set was Arayan rims with Omas Hubs, a Campy Brevetti Internationali Cassette, "hand Built Swiss spokes" and Carlisle flyte B tires. The Bike needs a serious cleaning and some love.

the frame is to small, so I am going to keep the parts for another built and most likely trade or sell the frame and forks for something my size. Unfortunately it has 2 small dents, where it looks like it fell over. I took it for a ride yesterday all dirty and dusty with no tune ups and it rode perfect.

Vonruden,

Two Batavus Professionals in one week and both with the same paint and decals. What's the chances of that? Cruising on Google I haven't run across another with this paint scheme.

Interesting that the lugs look a bit different, yours are longer and mine shorter (looking near the downtube shifters). I was guessing mine was an 85 by the parts. What tells you yours is '84?
