A small blue was rambled it way to the 66, missing the front wheel but all else appears to be here. This will be a wall hanger, but only because I'm a giant by comparison. Since this was taken I've cleaned up the blue, and slammed the stem to a proper position. I was very fortunate to get the pedals.


I have a feeling this, in some form, this may go to a local forum member.

I have a '74 25" black, but that is less than beautiful will be on the repaint schedule this next year.

This is a photo of my P-13 taken in the late 1970s. I bought the bike new in 1975. It was originally silver. I had it painted red by Assenmacher Cycles in Michigan a few years later and this was taken after I reassembled it. It came new with Clement silk tubulars. I somehow attached a rear rack to this road racer and used it to tent camp northern Michigan for a couple of weeks with the silks I lost track of the number of flats and could patch a tubular tire with a blindfold on by the end of that trip. Note the corncob and 49T inner chainring - how I climbed those hills is a mystery.

It looks like I had already upgraded to a Super Record rear derailleur and brake levers. And I did a drillium project in my machine shop class in college where I fluted the seat post, drilled the chainrings and hollowed out the shifters. Bike was sold long, long ago but I still have one of the shifters as a keychain!

A good chance to mount the rear rack at the dropouts, Jim Blackburn filling nuts were used, pretty clever, an aluminum disc about 3mm thick with a threaded bore and a fillet perimeter fit very well in the Campagnolo dropout, rack and fender washer to the outside and a pretty secure mount point for the rack stays.

BTW, the other shift lever broke off in my hand while riding (I still can't figure out why ) and were replaced with the latest and greatest space-age carbon fiber Modolo Kronos levers around 1980.
