Let's see your team bikes!

I don't really follow professional cycling but for some reason I've come to really appreciate bicycles from the late 80s and early 90s for sporting team paint schemes. I now have 2 team bikes so I'll start with mine but let's see some more. Whether it is your team Wheaties Schwinn or a team Fiat post them here.

I'll star with my 1986 Concorde team PDM. Belgian brand made in Italy. Full Campagnolo super record.

Here is my new to me Eddy Merckx team Telekom Super Corsa. I believe it to be from the early nineties made Columbus TSX.

Nice bike! I like those mx leaders labeled as corsa extras. What is the geometry like? I know that a 55 cm frame (top tube and seat tube) fits me well with a 12 cm stem but actual team bikes usually have some strange measurements being that they were custom made.

My 1980 U.S. Olympic Team bike:



It used to be all Super Record, but my old legs eventually didn't like the 53/42 gearing on the crank. Now (pictured) it has a Zeus 2000 48/36 crank instead. Much nicer. The Campy shifters were also replaced by Simplex retrofrictions some time back.

I guess I finally have a "Team Bike" in my stable.....





Far from done, but up on two wheels for I suspect the first time in a long time. Just a "dry fitting" for the BB, crank, pedals, clips, stem and brake calipers with just O-rings for a headset for now.. The wheelset is also just a stand in, taken temporarily from my Medici project for these pics.

Lusted after one of those 441 Victors since 1971! The old adage was that they would climb trees. The compression ratio was great enough to break arches in feet when kick starting incorrectly, hence the compression release for starting!

I don't have pics yet but I'm slowly working away on a Lotto MBK Team Replica. Columbus SL with a full Chorus 8s group. I believe it has been posted on here before by the previous owner. After some digging and looking at old photos I'm fairly certain this one isn't an actual team bike as they were kitted with a Mavic Group and Reynolds 753 tubes. Pics to follow shortly

It's not wearing its proper team parts, but it was a team bike.



I'm looking forward to building thus one up:

In actual fact, only the fork is MXL tubing, the rest of the frame seems to be regular sized, I should measure it one of these days to ascertain what it might be because there is no tubing decal. I think it is a 59cm seat tube with a 58cm top tube but I cannot recall exactly, it came with a 140mm stem. I sent the serial number to Merckx but never heard back, I will have to try again sometime as I am interested in the tubing, the bike isn't that light and Ludwig was a big guy and a sprinter.

This project was dragged home recently. An 86-87 Corsa Extra. Belonged to a racer in Belgium, his old bike. Not sure if he was part of a team.
