Dude! That's terrific. I love the color of that bike. And your build is really interesting.

The use of those industrial absorbent pads for the bearings and other parts is genius, too. Definitely something I'm going to adopt.

from my back yard



from our room, Bodega Bay, Ca, this past weekend.



my 3.5 year olds new boots.


if you're ever in Occidental, Ca , eat breakfast here.



also from last weekend. It shouldnt be hard to figure out what's who/where this is. Well, the guy on the left might be more difficult.




my son in the back alley a week ago. I think the training wheels are coming off very soon.

Those pics of the parts are great.
Still art about to become moving art.

That's a sweet looking bike. Is it a road model? hybrid?
It's sporting some pretty fat tires. What size tires?

Thanks cooper! It is a 1983 Lotus Pegasus, and early ATB or MTB. 26" wheels. I went with 26x2.35 tires and it looks like I could have fit 26x2.5 if I wanted to. I have a "thing" for these early MTB's and own 4 of them. I went with an around town / cruiser type of build with this one.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to use those shifters as when I went to install them, one of them is missing the serrated washer
As luck would have it, the Lotus came with a nice set of earlier Shimano thumb shifters, though they're not the 1st gen. Deore, they are a fine set and work great

Seen in Paris. The bike is nothing fancy, but the pannier...oh la la!





Sidenote from the CR website: "..(Starnord was a) relatively small family-owned affairs but they managed to produce a full range of bikes from kid's' tourers and racers right through to serious amateur racing machines... sponsored local semi-pro teams from time to time. An interesting fact about Dangre-Starnord is that the company never kept any stock; it did not have a warehouse. Every frame and cycle built was ordered by someone, and each customer, regardless of the model, price, etc., of their bike and could choose their own spray finish from a range of about 20 colours."
"Both Dangre..(was) on the route of the Paris - Roubaix classic, ... being just around the corner from the first 'ravitaillement' zone on the route." -Norris Lockley

Not fancy in the materials or workmanship, but it's a lovely design. I had one of those French mixtes with the curved stays. It might have been from the 50's. It had a derailleur and a three-speed freewheel. The gears were closely spaced. What's up with that? I gave the bike to photogravity and asked him not to convert it to IGH. Not that I really care what he does with it. I wonder if he's done anything with it yet. It was a wreck, but it had potential to become beautiful once again.
