Show me your 1960 - 1969 bicycles

This era might be my favourite but I mostly see late 70s and early 80s around here. Show me what ya got.

This is the ONLY 60's bike I have.
When I wrote to them, Ganna, (which is still in business) informed me that this is a late 60's issue.
(The French Belleri track bars are of course not original. Likewise, the OEM derailleurs were Valentino.)

The best estimate for the model year of my Legnano is 1961.

Really love the look of that Legnano, cb400bill.

Here is the only 60's era bike in my collection at the moment, a 1966 Paramount, previously posted many times in various other places on these forums:


I ride different wheels with clinchers most of the time.

Your Legnano is quite possibly the most beautiful bike I have seen in a while.

I just pick up a Legnano that is in rough shape, but still love it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/markus9...7633183404338/

I think it's a px-10 that was heavily modded around 1977 when the fork was changed. I put a triplex FD and a pair of challege paragi-roubaix tires on the bike since that picture was taken... it's still pretty shiny but it's pouring here so I can't get a more recent picture. I thought about putting fenders and stuff on it but I'll save those for something I might actually ride in the wet.

This is the bike I couldn't afford in 1968 because it was $400 then. Excuse the Look pedals - at least they are first generation.

For lightweights, I think this Carlton is the sole 1960's lightweight bicycle I have. For me, English stuff from the 40's and 50's really pushes my buttons.

I do have a few roadsters from the 60's, too.

That's the day I bought it about two years ago. The bicycle had been sitting for many years before that point. It's a frankenbike now...
