We're no longer together, but it was lovely while it lasted:



Will you accept Radiant Coppertone in lieu of gold?

Sure - if you think it's worth posting, throw it on!

Lots of nice bicycles in this thread, but none are really gold, are they? That is not intended to offend and, with that in mind, I thought that I would show one gold bike, well gold plated to be more precise. The bike is not mine, rather it is a museum piece that is placed on display, here and there, from time to time. It is a thirties something CCM Flyer...

78 Schwinn World Sports. This bike is currently in the stand getting built up to be the bike I will leave in the city.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Schwinn called this 1962 Superior Radiant Gold. It's a bit different than the Radiant Coppertone color which they were also offering at the same time. Chain is slack because I store my bikes in the small - small combination to relax the rear derailleur springs. Springs in this derailleur are probably a bit weak also.

I think this bike is currently on display in the Calgary airport domestic arrivals area.

Those are Vittoria Open Corsa SC clinchers (700 x 25).
I also use the similarly sized Vittoria Evo Corsa 700x25 on other bikes, but those only come with black sides.

I think the tan/yellow-walled Open Corsa SC tires go better with the Flamboyant Gold bike.
