So, being a sucker to pick up pretty much any brand bike that I don't have. I grabbed this Urago. No model name anywhere and I haven't been able to date it just yet. From research I have found that Urago did make some high end bikes and nice frames. This one looks to be part of the transition into the bike boom years. Nothing super fancy, but it looks to have been just parked in a basement or garage for a long time. Bars are well wrapped and the small detail of putting some bar wrap around the frame where the Pletcher rack mounts. Any more info would be appreciated. Suntour GT rd, Spirt fd and Suntour shifters are pretty cool. $2 worth I guess.

Literally saved from the dump!

The cheap fixie will be a nice project for my 13yr old. The Cimmeron will get a nice restoration but wish it was one size bigger. The other two will become city cruisers.

Got a winter of projects on the docket!

Dig the brake levers on the Cimmeron.

thank you for sharing this find with the forum

have not before seen this head transfer; appears later than anything am familiar with

owned Urago bicycles from 1957, 1960 and 1969

Verktyg hath writ that the frames of some Urago were produced by Bertin

please make a thread on the cycle whenever you begin work on it

looks to hail from about the 1974-1975 time

you may be able to read a date marking inside a small diamond symbol on the cycle's RIGIDA SUPERCHROMIX wheel rims as here -

1990 Schwinn Crosscut Resto-Mod

I recently re-homed a lovable vintage drop-bar conversion, and I found I needed another one to fill the hole in my heart.







In my original post I noted that the components on this Crosscut were in good shape when I found it, and that I hoped to salvage the paint job. Unfortunately, that last part didnít pan out as rust from the chrome headset and seat post clamp had bubbled nearby paint. Repainting was easier than all the work it would have taken to try to repair the existing finish. But as Iíd hoped, I was able to restore and keep most of the components.



Besides the virtues others have noted about these bikes, such as the long wheelbase, relaxed geometry, and space for larger tires, there are other things Iíve found interesting: Although the brakes are cantilever, they are actuated with bridge cables and yokes like center-pull calipers. So far Iím impressed with their stopping power. It also has Shimanoís Biopace oval-ish chainrings. And the model name for the Shimano group set is Exage which I havenít come across before and, according to their website, is ďcoined from excellent, exceed and age.Ē Okay then.

I donít have a lot of time logged on it yet, but I'm liking how it rides. I havenít been able to directly recognize a difference with the Biopace chainrings, but Sheldon Brown has said my knees will thank me later.

My primary experience with Exage is the old Exage Sport stuff from my since-sold '88 Centurion LeMans. I found it to be quite good, working just as well as the 105 stuff but with a plainer appearance.

Too new to post photos but I picked up a project...I am pretty sure it is a Raleigh International, 22 1/2" C-T with a 22" C-C top tube.
According to Retro Raleigh or Kurt....the year code G is '72. It has been spread to 135mm in the rear but appears to be in fair condition.
Anyone have more information about Raleigh lightweights?
In particular I'm trying to understand the color scheme which does not appear to be correct. Blue with Red head tube. I cannot see evidence of any other colors.

Thanks for letting me know! I havenít had many rides on it yet but I am also impressed with this LX set. The derailleurs didnít care a whit that I went from a 7 to an 8-speed cassette or that Iím using new MicroShift brifters. Everything was easy to set up and works well. Iíve spent considerable time on other resto-mods getting the front derailleur dialed in, but not this one. I just made sure it was in line with the rings, and that it cleared the bulge on the big ring, and it did the rest. And the brakes continue to impress me. I saved the original cassette, flat bar, stem, shifters, and brake levers in case I ever want to get the band back together.

When it rains ...

A Miyata 215 ST popped up locally for not much. It took a couple days to track the guy down, so I stopped by to take a look. I decided to pass and the price dropped. I hesitated a beat, and he said "I'll throw in another bike", so I said I'd take a look. And out came the Gitane Hostler. I cracked. He saw the weakness. And then he did that Jedi voice thing "And you'll take these other two as well".....

The Miyata and Gitane are both too small for me.
The parts on the Miyata are clean, but kind of surplus to my needs, so that might travel on as a complete bike.
The Gitane has a lot of French Funk going on. I think the crank, Mafac cantilevers and some other bits are going on the 650b Manufrance frame I swapped a bike for a while back.
I don't remember what month is "sthow your purple bike", but if some one wants to get a jump on that.....

Sears-JC Higgins

I got this one for $50. It's an early 60's JC Higgins (Puch or the like). I was sold on the chain guard. Works with a Simplex derailleur. It also has an internally routed rear brake cable on the opposite side. The ride isn't half bad either.
