Killer scores all around! I really liked the Advocet Racing 1 I rode around on this past summer. It stock was stock on a Ď84 Trek 510. Almost removed it before selling the bike. That would have just felt wrong though, being that the bike was in excellent condition, and all original save for an upgraded rear hub. Still, a comfy saddle in my experience.

I wouldn't have gone for this '89 Axis today, but it was cheap and I recognized some good components on it. I aim to cannibalize the cockpit stuff (stem, shifters, levers) for a buddy's bike. There are definitely some differences between this and a stock Axis, according to the catalog scans I checked out:


There are no decals or identifying marks on the cranks. They look Cook Brothers-ish and are an odd size (177mm). The dust caps say Sugino. Non-driveside crank is cracked bad:


Cool fork, too:

The Apex was a long way up the DB food chain IIRC. Be a shame to tear it apart. Same with your Bridgestone MB-5, ir could make a very respectable gravel bike.

Sigh, the bike magnet strikes again... Came across this '85 Club Fuji this morning and on impulse took it home. It's in decent shape except for a little rust on the top tube cable guides and a lot on the left side top headtube lug. Easy enough to repair that and touch up - but not sure where I'll go with it yet, doubtful I'll keep it.

Torker LX

Not C&V but......Found this set out with the trash the other morning while out riding. Nice cranks and aluminum rims. Did some research on it, turns out its a pretty good model. Think I'll try to learn to ride it when the weather is more hospitable.

Thanks! I'm going to try it this afternoon. I may swap a couple of things out, the dia-comp side pulls didn't stop me very good in '83.

Bar-ends are a nice mod. Looks pretty original otherwise.

Maybe the brakes just need better blocks.

Oh she rode good, all the bearing sets were revived, the wheels cleaned, new seat and post. Took me a few minutes to get used to the 27" x 1 1/8" tires. Pepto Bismol colored tape... lol

Picked up this 99(?) Schwinn Peloton from Facebook Marketplace. It was one of those deals that pose an ethical quandary: the ad was for "2 Adult Bikes" and it was this Peloton with an old Walmart Roadmaster, $25 each or both for $40. I think the bikes belonged to someone displaced by the hurricane, and their friend was helping them clear out their stuff. It's still pretty rough out here. If they had tried to sell the Peloton closer to market value it would have never sold, and I feel like I did them a favor by taking the Roadmaster for $20. At least that's my justification.

I always overlook Schwinns of this era, and I admit it's solely due to aesthetic reasons. The faux vintage stylings always seemed cheap to me. But this bike is certainly not cheap. Reynolds 853 tubing, full Ultegra, American Classic seatpost. It has evidently been in a skidding crash and hung in a garage for a long while, but it's in very good shape otherwise and can ultimately be repaired. I bought it thinking I'd just use the wheelset, but I might be adding this one to the stable, even if it's not quite my style. What's the ride quality like on these?

^^ Super snag there! I on the other hand have been looking for some of these Schwinn from the early 2000’s. Great bikes and nicely adorned.

Reportedly good ride, many think you can't go wrong with 853, I however have no experience with it.

Only problem with those are the aluminum forks. Replace it with carbon and it would be a super sweet ride

Some low end but nice bits from 1 of 3 bikes I stripped for a bike shop. These came off an early 70ís Japanese brand, Fujiwara. Never heard of it.

a nice set of Shimano 333 shifters with black hoods. I have the white ones now Iíve got a black set. Also a bottom half of a Japanese bell. Looks just like the Crane one but missing the bell itself. Who knows, might come across an orphan. Big item was a nice but slightly beat up mudguard set. Aluminium ones with steel stays. Came with all the attachment hardware (They are soaking in oxalis acid presently)

An '85 Bianchi Stelvio that I just finished up giving a complete overhaul. I had to wipe off a lot of dust and cobwebs from it. The bike was always kept inside and is in excellent shape. I have a total of $33 invested in it.

Columbus Tretubi? Built up one of these for my wife. It came with a few Campy Triomphe bits. I wised it was my size.

Yup it is Tretubi. It has Campy Triomphe fd, rd and shifters. The brakes are Modolo. The hubs, crankset, headset and bottom bracket are Ofmega.

A few of the "catches" I bought over the weekend. Some things are already sold, many things are for current projects or to keep around "just in case".
