Duly noted!

One of the few times where the application of a Brooks B-17 does nothing to improve the aesthetics. Maybe it needs a Cambian?

No.. that bike likes the taste of blood, it's no vegan. Good thing she rides so nice since she's ugly like a pig.

Pletscher rack, $20
Brooks saddle, $95
Zip tie housing clamps, priceless

Must be interesting to shift with the fork mounted shifter?

ROFLMAO, yes it must. I'm betting you know what's actually going on in that pic though with the amount of bikes you wrench any suggestions for making it look even more like a homeless persons bike? Sadly I trimmed down those zip ties and remounted the levers shortly after this pic, the ties are routing the dynamo wiring of course.

Check out this terrible cable bend at the DT too.. and somehow she still shifts accurately.

Hello everyone. Iím new here and basically registered to look at all the nice pix. So I thought it would be only fair to post some of my own.


This summer I bought an early eighties Peugeot racing bicycle at the local scrap metal yard. (my 1st racing cycle ever) My plan to rebuild it with a Sram automatix 2 speed hub got put on hold when it turned out that it had a Swiss bottom bracket. So I bought a cheap frame to replace the Peugeot, but the newly sourced frame came with a whole pile of parts that made up a complete bicycle. Curious how it would ride I could not resist putting it back together.



Pile of parts.



Parts cleaned, ball bearings replaced, 8 new spokes and a new chain later. It's a 1984 Koga Miyata Superwinner with a Shimano 600 groupset.
http://www.koga.com/files/5/0/4/Koga_Brochure_1984.pdf



Replacement derailleur from the parts bin also a Shimano 600 but I believe it's an older model. There wasn't a lot of spring tension left in the old derailleur and that was probably the reason I had to replace those 8 spokes.



I used to be really into XC mountainbiking so the weird handle bar had to go. The brake levers also came from the parts bin and are modified safety brakes.
I will invest in a pair of nice leather grips that will probably cost me more than the complete bike



The end result. And it's a real joy to ride. It could use some new tires, these came from the Peugeot and are starting to dry out.


Total cost 20 Euro. (I only had to buy 8 new spokes and some ball bearings. Chain and handle bar donated by my brother)


So now I will need to find another frame for that Sram automatix project that I had planned
Sweet ride! Though I prefer the drop bars version

I dig the pig. Duct tape over the Bridgestone decal would add a nice stealth "homeless" touch. Where's the Dynamo in this pic? Is the light something you'd recommend? I'm struggling with battery and usb lights on my zip tied mountain bike conversions.

The dynamo is over on NDS, rear wheel. it's semi visible in the pic. I can't recommend it yet as I've only test run it in daylight so far, also I'm converting the bulbs to LED's so it may be a while yet, I see you like me live in California so please bare in mind we're supposed to have constant on lights, so by state law generators aren't good enough.

Little wonder the poor thing hadn't been shifting well when I tossed it in storage

It's all original except the tires - those were too far gone to save. It's a 25" frame and is a little too big for me but I make it work. May I present my 1972 Fuji S10-S Special Road Racer:

Look fantastic.

The latest iteration of my RRB. I'd been riding it as a fixed gear, then realized I had an extra set of tubular wheels (they came with the bike, actually) so I thought I'd try this 1 x 6 drivetrain. I didn't have to touch the BB/crank, so switching back to FG is a pretty simple matter, easier still if I use a stem or dt shifter next time. Anyway, the gearing is 44 x 13-18; pretty perfect for the relatively flat terrain I ride on.

New in '85 or '86 I think, not sure, MT Racing from LBS. Most MTB looked like this back then, except for the wide bars. My fav DB bend that I bent to my liking in a large vice. I bought this really to keep my legs in shape. Started riding dirt bikes since the early 70'S, this fit right in at the time. Over the years lots of tires, handlebars, chains, gears, seats, and 3 BB's. Always kept inside, took these pics today. Looking into a New Giant 27.5 at a local shop. Will keep this, it rides too good to get rid of it.

Your should be careful - your saddle might not be compatible with your chainring.
