OK another opportunity, but consolidated!
Priority 1: 1988(?) Burley Duet - Thanks to Thrifty Bill (wrk101)! Currently stripped down waiting for wife to trace decals. Found a nearly new Arai spare drag brake for $5. New color will be "Race Red" per the wife.


Priority 2: Pinarello Tre Cime for my Daughter
[IMG][/IMG]

Priority 3: 1984 Trek 610 Long term project ready for Paint - Braze-ons modification resulting in a new name - "PaTREK 650" (Frank gets too much credit as in frankenbike).
[IMG][/IMG]

Priority 4: 1988 Masi Gran Corsa - Decision what to do with it.

Here's mine; a 1980 Masi Gran Criterium. While it looks like it's beyond repair, it's not. Since the pic was taken, it's been boxed up, and it's on it's way to WI for a new top and down tube. I hope to have it back in about 4 weeks.

I've always had a love affair with Masi bikes; when I stumbled upon this bike, I knew I had an obligation to try and get it fixed. This bike will be amazing when it's done. Should be a fun winter project.

Still working. Need a 1" threadless fork, some wheel building bits and a nice crank, then it's time to make a good expedition tourer out of it.

I have three winter projects. The first was to build up a winter commuter which I recently finished. I took a 1992 Bridgestone BB-1 frame set and built it up with parts mainly from my parts bin. I splurged on winter tires and some really great platform pedals. My 2d project is a mtb drop bar conversion. I have all the parts gathered and plan to build it up. It is a 1989 stump jumper comp. My third winter project (and I may not get to it this winter) is to rebuild my 1983 Trek 720. The bikes badly needs a new paint job. I built the bike from a frame and still pretty much have all the parts from the right era to build it up:

Love the stumpy comp and the sig line as well! I've never told my wife what my bikes cost. Good job in getting those handlebars nice and high. What sort of stem did you use? I just splurged on a Nitto Dirt Drop and Nitto Randonneur bar. I figure between these two I can get the bar level with my saddle but I think I may end up without enough set back on the saddle, sigh. In any case, that's my next project as I tore down the stumpy and used it as a parts donor for the commuter.

my winter project is the one on the left and right. (center is gone)

left: Pinarello Tre Cime
mostly need to cure the rust spots on the exposed chrome—the entire frame is chromed under paint.
not leaning onto re-paint, as i kinda like fragmentation and patinas. seeing how i can 'preserve' the age still killing all the rust and preventing further peel-offs.
then it will be massaged with some bits and pieces around to be a beater/commuter SS.
(need to send the current beater Masi 3V frame for TT/DT replacement)

right: Schwinn PDG Prologue
this will be my first attempt of all-Japanese build respecting its origin. some DA and Superbe/Superbe Pro stuffs have been being collected.

waiting for Park bench-mount repair clamp, which was my b-day gift from friends.
will definitely share the progress whatever i end up with...
fun fun fun.

I was given this in pieces, most of the parts are their,,I will clean up the frame best I can, the forks and fenders were so bad I had to paint them. Funny the chain guard is in excellent condition. Had to order ball bearings for the bottom bracket cups and the forks. I will have them Wednesday then I hope to have it all together within a couple weeks.

It is a late 50's Schwinn Town and Country tandem

just wondering where WI you are sending it for repair, out of curiosity? (sorry the pic hurts...)

i also have a Masi 3V frame needing TT/DT replacement. not as looking severe as yours, it got some whirls near the HT from a front collision. got quotation from a few places, the best one was from Fanklin Frames in OH. that 3V frame is with oversized tubing + internal lugs that most of the repairers taking an excuse for outrageous quote. Franklin said they've done it 'no big deal'. not finding a better quote and confidence, i will most likely send the frame to them.

nothing specific, just wanted to expand my knowledge around frame repair and resources.

still doing some live-scale 3d Tetris in the closet...
currently building a portable work stand + storage using an old production chest + bench mount Park clamp + some casters.
will update when done. thanks for checkin in, David.

I started out by calling Waterford; they've done a couple of bikes for me in the past with amazing results; I found out, however, that they wont replace tubes on bikes they didn't make. The person I spoke with was fantastic, and recommended a shop called The Yellow Jersey. https://yellowjersey.org/

The website is a little jacked up due to a server issue, but you can follow links and see what they can do with a 3V. There are some great pictures. I called and was quoted what I thought was a very reasonable price. I was told that metal work is 3 weeks out. Waterford said that the work this shop does is outstanding. As soon as the frame arrives, they'll call me and we'll discuss the process.

I was thinking of posting a seperate thead to document the process; this is going to be an amazing bike when it's done.

thanks for the info. really good to know. just checked the website. had a little car-sick in fact...
been to a couple pages of YJ site before for some tubular tire special deal sorts, never known the whole site is such a massive... um, mess
where did you exactly mean by 'following the link', if you don't mind elaborating? sorry, i might need a zanax to surf their website....
thanks!

Some nice projects in here. Hope to see some progress being made as well, cause there's always room for some inspiration.

I have got a couple of projects myself. Most of them begin with a Z, so I won't be working in alphabetical order. There's also some bikes I'm overhauling for friends and family but these have my personal priority:


Three Zieleman's: My favourite blue one, a track bike and the critbike painted in Concorde scheme. The track bike will need a repaint and some missing parts (wheels, the crit one just needs a new cockpit and the blue one will have to be good enough for the Retro Tour of Flandres in June. So full 70s Campy, mounted insuch a way that I don't lose any precious bolts and such on the Flemish cobblestones.
