My 1994 Bianchi Trofeo, showing signs of wear and tear. I stripped it down this winter and did a quick pain job, and replaced many broken, or in some cases...too nice of campy 8 speed parts on it, so i redid it. This will be my rain bike/spring pennsylvania roads bike/etc.

Here's my 1980 Raleigh Comp GS. Got some Campy on it, but the brakes are getting redone when I have time.

1986 Cilo just completed and fine-tuned. 2x6 Dura Ace indexed group, including hubs.
Seatpost is a Dura Ace AX aero (which I'd trade for an aero "regular" DA). Hubs are laced to Matrix ISO CII rims.
Bar/stem are Cinelli, as my habit goes. Bike is for my brother-in-law, powdercoated with new decals.
Columbus SL frame tubing. This is his favorite bike to ride. Conti Ultra Sports.





1985 Cinelli Equipe Centurion, 3rd version. OEM was NR friction/Ofmega mix, 2nd was 2x7 Chorus.
This one is 2x8 Chorus Ergo, but we kept the crankset because of frail threading that inhibited removal.
Wheelset is 8-sp Veloce laced to Mavic CXP-10's, Conti GP4000's.
Columbus SP frame, stripped and painted, new decals. I left the fork bare because it was polished under the paint.
Again, Cinelli steering, Campy seatpost. We have the OEM Gipiemme but we can't find it.
1/2" smaller all around than the Cilo, so we compensated with the stem a bit.
My brother-in-law's first Ergo build. Can you tell he likes red bikes with chrome forks?

Well done on both of these beauties.

I'd have a tough time deciding which one to pull off the hooks.

Cool stuff, no doubt!

Welcome to the forum. I like a Litespeed without too much yellow (though you can almost never have enough yellow on a bike....) Awesome tricolor on the LS. Go ahead, make the Serotta fixie....

The Black & Tan, 1983 Raleigh Super Course



Upgrades include Wrights W3.N saddle, ergo bars, aero brake levers, Suntour Bar-Cons and a SunRace 7-speed ramped freewheel, Cyclone M-II rear derailleur, and a Bike Burrito for my flat repair kit.

I picked up a set of C&V 700C wheels on CL that I plan on putting on soon; need to get some new tires first. I also have a matching Cyclone M-II front derailleur to put on to match the rear.

Nice bikes.

Is that your beautiful red Singolo on the Serotta forum?

Exquisite bicycle.

An outstanding example!

Some recent photos of my main bike:








It has Dura Ace/Ultegra 2x10 right now. Soon, I will be rebuilding the wheelset with Hed Belgium C2 rims, which should improve the ride significantly. I can't wait.

Wow. This is a GREAT bike. I love the new componentry on DT shifters and a steel bike. So simple, yet tech-y.

Still, very cool.

I love the paint on yours.

What are your build plans, if I may ask?

Thanks, Puget Pounder. I like blending the old with the new. It's something I've always enjoyed about one of my other hobbies: hot rodding.

Yes, it is a Peloton.
