My daughter's Rigi is an even more unique version of the Rigi in that it has 26" wheels:

I think I saw pics of this via Flicker. very nice looking. I never knew RIGI did 26" wheels models. there are a few things that look really differnt though.

This is my '67 Raleigh. Wish I could tell you which model it is, wish you could tell me which model it is. Currently has 27 speeds and modified Campy NR deraillers.
Oh yeah, the girl is kind of unique, too.



Could be one of these but it's got a front derailler with the appropriate braze ons;

I just went through the entire thread and don't recall seeing one mountain bike. There's plenty of drop bars and some nice old cruisers even a folding bike, but no MTBs. So I'll take a stab at it with this 1992 elevated chainstay Nishiki Ariel. Probably more rare than the frame is the still working, period correct Scott, Clark Kent suspension fork.

You might want to take photos of the bikes away from the girl...currently it's hard to look at the bikes when the girl is so adorable. It's like how you never want to be an actor in a scene with a pet or a cute kid.

1986 Giubilato

I believe this is from around 1986 judging by the components. Ganna bought out Giubilato in early 80's but the company is still called Giubilato but they only make Ganna bikes.



Campagnolo Victory Gruppo, Nisi rims, selle Concor red saddle. fully chromed.

few were built, even fewer are probably left, and it could be the only one ever dressed with campagnolo 10spd.

the bike was recently stripped to move the parts to a tommasini tecno frame but the frame is still in the family (it has been since new)

And you know who that frame should go to should you ever decide to part company with it...the only other guy here who appreciates "crazy paint"!

I really need to build this up: late 80's Greg Diamond. All his frames were custom, so no other like it.



Still searching for info on this one: it's got 'Norman' decals all over it, and looks to be expertly built with Columbus tubes:

Ok I have a couple weird ones.
84 Fuji Touring III "Lurch edition". While a 64cm T III is not all that rare, how many came with a what appears to be a factory 48 spoke rear wheel? The rims match and are the models listed for the bike. THe hub is a Specialized tandem.


The second is was I was told was a Raleigh from the widow of the original owner that bought the bike new in Oxford England where he is from. I am not even sure it is a Raleigh. The SN looks nothing like a Raleigh SN. I cant find a picture of any Raleigh frame that looks the exact same. Campy Drops, Very light so it is a 531 or better. The tops of the seat stays look like a Sports. The bike came with center pulls as it has a cable bridge like a super course. Has plain lugs with no windows and the rear brake cable is mounted on the top of the top tube like a 80's bike. Fork looks Raleigh and has a right side headlight bracket but I do no see any hints of Chrome on the forks or stays.
It sports high flange Campy record hubs and the front sports a concave weinmann that I believe to be original to the bike. Now most upper end Raleigh's of the late 70's early 80's came with low flange with 700c wheels (many with the Concave Weinmann). This bike wears 27's. It has a 600 Arabesque RD that dates mid 78 that I think may be original as are the Dallas bars on a Roto stem. I believe it was originally all white.

I assume the Campy NR seat post is original but I suspect the PO is responsible for the Drillium addition.
