She's a shorty so Iv'e had to adjust things to fit her.
How tall is your wife? from where the post is, it looks like it is beyond the possibility of fitting her. Cool ride though.

She's about 5'2", it may be. We'll find out over the next few weeks.

I see quite a few Davidsons around Seattle(and on CL), but surprisingly don't recall any with chromed forks or rear ends. That looks real nice

^ Back when I had it built for me I was rolling in dough, so I specced all that chrome I shoulda had them do the headlugs, too!

But you're right; I rarely see any with much more than a chromed driveside chainstay, or a fork crown here and there.

Not really a stable. More like a stall or two.

I have got a few more project frames kicking around, but since they aren't yet rides they'll have to be featured another time.

Maybe we should call you the king of the the corncob - is your Mondia the only run with anything larger than a 18/19/21 in the rear?

^ For the time being, it is - because of that, I've been doing most of my riding this summer with it. I'm currently trolling Ebay with the intention of locating a few 28t cogged Reginas or Everests. It's time to admit my knees aren't what they were and save the "corncobs" for the relatively flat rides

Still my only bike (sniff), owned since it was new. '73 Raleigh RRA w/full Campy NR, SR derailleurs, Simplex retrofriction shifters, Modolo death stem and bars, original Brooks Pro. Most parts came from the International I had at the time.

I suppose if you only have one bike, this is a mighty fine one to have!

^ Well, compared to many of the bikes in this thread (and in C&V), not sure about mighty fine, but I've always liked it. I do have 2 sets of wheels for it, does that count?

Team Telekom bike ridden by former pro Olaf Ludwig, it is a Corsa Extra frame with a Leader fork, probably because Ludwig was a sprinter



Another Corsa Extra but in the tutti frutti team paint

Here's my Cilo with Columbus Aelle/Tretubi tubeset. I bought it from a buddy while I was in high school in ~1987-88. It originally had all 600EX components and was a lighter blue. I got it resprayed after an RD failure ripped apart the rear wheel and dropout in the early 90s sometime. Decals are from cyclomundo. This is the exact mishmash of components I had on it since college; the front wheel and brakes are original though. I finally glued on the tires and wrapped the bars this weekend.
Rode it for the first time since ~1998 today. Apparently my legs have shrunk - I ended up making a bunch of stops to mess with seat height/position/angle, handlebar angle, etc. After riding my Bianchi Volpe and MTBs, this thing felt like a rocket, with telepathic handling. By the end of my 22 mile ride, I felt comfortable on it again.

That is ice cold. Very very nice. Glad you had it repaired and got it back on the road.

You'll have to excuse me in advance because I don't know any better, but are those brake cable arches supposed to be so tall?
