Maybe so, but I don't think you'll get too many complaints for showing it again!

Here's my newest acquisition, picture credit is from the previous owner. It's definitely a work project and won't be as nice as some of the others here..but I'm looking forward to posting nicer pictures in the future when I'm done.

And I'm looking forward to seeing them. Nice score, all the good bits are there. Ideale saddle, MAFAC brakes. Even the half hoods for the brake levers, by the look of it. Should make a very nice touring machine.

No. I'm too envious to like it.

I kid; it's nine kinds of cool.

Hey, shouldn't you be chopping that up into a fixed-gear, like every other Williamsburgite would? That is so friggin' beautiful - I really like the rear derailleur protector!

I wish I hadn't sold this black one.

Still have this one. Will trade straight across for a touring bike, same size.

What is that? Surely not the PY10 mentioned in your signature? What do you consider a "touring bike"?

Triple crank, 531 or Tange or chromoly frame and fork, fender eyelets (or fenders), 27 inch or 700C. Don't care if it needs a little work. Good basic shape.
Just frame for frame or the whole bike, What have you got?

Both stunning bikes Daniel. I don't believe I'd seen your Mercier before. Is that a Stronglight 99 BIS (drillium) crankset?

Thank you! :-) No, I don't think I've shown the Mercier in here before. The crankset is a Stronglight 105bis. The bike's still completely original, and I just love it's look with it's faded paint.
