Is there a definitive photo database for C&V ?

There are always so many different requests with identifying various C&V bicycles, that I'm wondering if a comprehensive database exists somewhere. Something geared toward the frames themselves, not so much the components. Something with thumbnails showing good close ups of the lugs, bb, dropouts, etc.

I know I have searched the web and will usually find a little of this or a little of that, often with some photo that you can't even make out the details on. Understand that I am what some might call "computer challenged", or I might set about to do it myself.

It seems to me we have the makings well established, with various threads on head badges, drain holes, and numerous help-me-ID this bike threads scattered about.

Have I not found the right web site yet in my various searches ? Does this already exist out there in cyberland ?

I see that even within this forum, the membership has a vast collection of various models, and a wealth of knowledge to go with them.

Any thoughts on this ?

There's a super database at the BMX Museum if that's your idea of classic & vintage.

there is an excellent Fuji site run by a member here.

I am however against any type of self serve database as we would not get to see so many great looking and unusual bikes.
Bianchis '87 Sport SX, '90 Proto, '90 Campione del Fausto Giamondi Specialisma Italiano Mundo, '91 Boarala 'cross, '93 Project 3, '86 Volpe, '97 Ti Megatube, , '90 something Vento 603,

Others but still loved,; '80 RIGI, '80 Batavus Professional, '87 Cornelo, '09 Motobecane SOLD, '?? Jane Doe (still on the drawing board), '90ish Haro Escape
