High-end bikes!

Okay, let's see the pictures of the nice, high-end C&V bikes. No Varsities or Contenientials or Sears bikes.

I'm talking Paramounts, Cioccs, Cinelli's, etc. I want to see Reynolds 531 and Columbus, no gaspipe.

Eye candy time. ready... GO!

Nothing super super high-end but here is some Italian steel. The purple Ciocc will probably get the group from the Benotto, I don't really like the wheels that are on it right now...and Ultegra on a Ciocc is sacrilege, so I am told

Wel,, here's mine. I know it might be pushing it to consider my PSV "high end" but to my mind it always was to me, personally....Supervitus 980 tubing sure isn't gaspipe stuff.

Anyway, I'm waiting delivery of another French classic I just snagged at an auction. It's my first bike purchase (albeit, used one) in over 20 years. I hope it's in as good condition as described by the seller. I'll add that in here after I'm all done cleaning/setting it up, maybe in a few weeks or so....

First you need to load the photos to a photo hosting site (flickr.com, photobucket.com, etc...myspace.com might work if the photos have their own separate page).

Then simply copy the webpage of the hosted photo (often ending in .jpg or .gif) and paste it using the "landscape" (small picture of mountains and sun) icon in the Reply box.

This will wrap the photo page in [IMG] [/IMG] tags and allow everyone else to see the photo.

Voila!

Edit: Here's an example using your own photo. In this case you're using bikeforums.net as the host site. I simply wrap the photo webpage in IMG tags and...

YOu guys are probably getting sick of it, and it hasn't looked like this since the spring (when I folded up a rim at 40 mph with a rock...).

ATM, it's BB-less getting an ammonia bath to try and loosen the stem and seat post.




Ultimately, I'd like to use all-original parts, but perhaps swap the rims out for clincher rims. Everything else will be as-is - all campy record and nuevo record stuff.

Reynolds 531 Raleigh Professional.

Some of these aren't vintage, but here's most of the stable...

The Merlin is a 92' frame, so I think that borderline counts.

Not included is my three seat tandem Schwinn...next time I'm at my parent's garage, I'll take some photos.
