Quandas bellas! Is that last one on PCH, around Point Mugu? That is a great, great ride. Terah and I are going to Amtrak our bikes up to Santa Barbara and ride back to Carlsbad on that route again this Spring.





Bring your Italian bike and let me know the next time you're around North San Diego County. I know some nice rides, restaurants, and breweries.

Good eye! It IS right next to Mugu Rock.


I love to ride on PCH from Ventura down to Malibu or Santa Monica. In April May of last year, there was a pod of whales visible from PCH. The pod seemed to hang around for a couple of weeks. It was quite a sight!


I like that picture next to Missile Park. I stop there often.


I was in La Jolla a couple of years ago when my daughter was attending a surfing festival. I took my bike and rode. some beautiful sights.


I will let you know the next time I am there.

Hi Kc. The paint finish on your Italian really does look like a proper Flamboyant on Chrome.

I have a Steve Goff built with Columbus Tubing (Designer Select which is of three different grades) and finished in a modern Flamboyant Blue. It is finished over a flash of Silver - I believe it does look good but alas it does not have that really deep lustre that the frame would have had with a pre Satin Chrome finish.

Here's my latest Italian Ride. A TSX tubed Billato Brothers built Greg Lemond Maillot Jaune. This is one sweet bike, in great shape, Campagnolo Components, fast, comfortable, perfect!

My Tommasini Prestige, most likely a 1986.

This bike is most likely the same one posted a few years back. https://www.bikeforums.net/13981218-post1.html
Not too many pink Tommies hanging around the place, and the frame has the same paint damage on the downtube, above the right shifter. It is probably from the front brake cable attachment arm and adjuster hitting the tube. It can be seen on the frame and fork picture clearly.

I don't know much about these bikes and there is little information about them. I built this frame this winter with parts I had laying around and find it rides at least as smooth as my carbon bike. I would assume that it would have originally came with campy components but like I have said I cannot track down anything. My hope is to acquire all the correct components for this model of bike, I assume it is a 2000.

Wow some truly awesome bikes here!

Here's mine in it's sorry state, currently undergoing a restoration where I will keep the existing paint, but most of the chrome is sadly too far gone. The horrible light will be replaced with one that looks period but with LED inside.

I'm doing it as a bike to use regularly not a perfect gleaming example (or that's the plan so far...)

Imho, we don't see nearly enough top-line 70s/early 80s Bianchis dressed in Celeste. Thanks for sharing these two beauties. Although I'm done collecting for now, if the right Bianchi came along...

Of course I love the drillium on your Cinelli

I'd like to see some closeups of those hole-y bits.

Here are my two. A not-so-vintage 2000 Vianelli Corsa and a 1989 Bianchi Giro. The previous owner had upgraded the Giro with C Record delta brakes. Both great riders.

Sir_Name, that's a nice 'Nago, even down to the red pulleys. I realize it's Italian but can you actually ride Connecticut's hills with that gearing??

I should post this from yesterday:

Thanks, Jim! The gearing can be 'a good challenge' at times... I can think of one or two hills I'd probably avoid on it given the option. Nice Tommasini!!

Polishing that deep red must be a pleasure, no other red comes close IMHO.
Thanks, Bill - yep, Saronni red, looks good in the sun even with a few marks of time... The Tommasini looks great. (d j vu all over again...)

1991 Tommasini Competizione. I've posted this bike before but this recent photo came out so nice I thought I'd share it again. I took this shot on April 15th, 2017 during a 70 mile (113 km) ride in Phoenix Arizona.
