Reamed, tapped, and faced the threadless bottom bracket shell on another Viscount I picked up a while ago. Does that constitute "drewing?"

1. Early 70s Mercier 100. First project is basically done. A lowly and rusted Mercier flip. I've already been working on it for a few months, but kept losing motivation. Posted on CL yesterday and have a few appointment set up already...

2. 1972 PX10. Another rough one. I already stripped off the parts and gave the frame an oxalic acid bath, but it still might need another. I have this notion to build it up with cross tubulars as a path-racer inspired gravel grinder.

3. Look KG86: This is going to be a long-term project. The rear triangle is spaced at 128mm, so I may try to use it as a canvas for a modern drivetrain build with some creative spacing and extra dish. Thinking Campagnolo 10s, but that can get expensive quickly and I'd be out of my element.

4. Look Bernard Hinault. It's been a few years since I restored this bike. It's due for a complete overhaul. While I have it stripped, I'd like to add some kind of frame-saver and do some touch-up paint here & there, before putting it all back together.

5. Bike for the wife. Nothing lined up yet. Been casually looking for a high quality mixte for some time.

6. Junior bike for the daughter (she's only 6 now, but she's outgrown her first bike). Again, nothing lined up yet.

I'm slow, so all my winter projects turn into spring and summer projects, and sometimes back to winter projects again!

Thank you.
Peugeot made them in Pearl white and Metallic Blue.
What I ended up using was a mixture based on a color (close as I could get it) from a PPG single stage book of paint chips at my local "Colours" paint shop. Couldn't even tell you exactly what the paint code is, it's out in the garage now.

1983 Rossin meets 2011/2012 SRAM FORCE components

Built up this 1983 Rossin Super Record (w/ Campy SR headset and seat post) with modern bits (SRAM FORCE 10 speed, Fulcrum racing 7 wheels).

Thinking I might actually sell it. Anyone have any appraisal suggestions?

doh! nuggets! that's a good move.
I agree - a really beautiful frame. I don't know what it will sell for, $300 at least? It looks like a popular size (58~60cm? maybe)
My only complaint are the black cranks. But at $50, I would not complain! (and I'll add fries to those chicken nuggets...)

If that were my bike, I'd keep it if I couldn't sell it for $500. I'm a fan of steel though. And I'd love to have an Italian bike (again).

I sold this bike: BATTAGLIN (no wheels) for $390 plus $100 shipping.
It was too small for me, and the buyer (here on the BF pages) sounded like he was going to keep things stock, not turn it into a single speed or some kind of nonsense.

Hope that helps!

My Fizik Arione should be here next week, then I will be able to finally ride this. So far this is my favorite bike that I have built, looks anyways.

Was offered this Roberts frame in the beer tent after the Dairyland Dare last summer, and snatched up a great deal. Since then I slowly acquired parts for it, and through a lot of effort managed to make this mid-70's road racer with pretty lug work into what I envisioned for it. I wanted a bike that would ride smoothly and with a reasonably good speed, yet have a vibe that didn't demand to be ridden fast. I think I succeeded in that.

Here's the details:
Frame - mid 70's Roberts Super with outlined and panto'd lugs
Headset - campagnolo
Crankset - Nervar arms with VO 10 speed compatible rings 46-30
Pedals - Ultegra spd road
FD - 600
RD - Ultegra 6500 short cage
Shifters - DA 10 speed with repainted pods
Post - Campy MTB
Stem and Bars - Gerry Burgess
Seat - Fujita Belt
Levers - Gran Comp
Brakes - Mafac racers
Tires - Grand Bois 32's
Wheels - Son TB14's on 105 hubs
Fenders - 50mm Berthoud stainless
Other little details also, but you can see the pictures yourself.

Done with very little winter to spare...

in the process of restoring and replacing a few well worn components on my 70's vintage Bob Jackson. Want to keep it as original as possible.

So do I.

That's a very attractive bicycle.

We are building a nice Bob Jackson in a similar color scheme for a friend next week.

She would likely love the chrome fenders, as they look first class on this build.

Thanks for the kind comments. The Roberts was quite the project.

Probably the hardest part was converting the frame to use the Mafac Racers. I had to install hangers with adjusters on both ends. The seat was most difficult as there was no room to squeeze the hanger between the pinch bolt (which is an English 26 tpi allen bolt, just to make the options and room for error less). Careful filing, and a full on 27.2 seatpost (many are below spec) resulted in just barely enough clearance for the nitto hanger.

With all the different sizes of threads, allens, and bolts on the bike, I will need to carry a sack full of tools when I ride (good thing it's sort of a heavyweight style build anyway). I hope to pick up a Carradice Nelson longflap for it over my B-day, and take it on some credit card tours this summer. Now I just need to get used to that narrow Q of the Nervar crank.

Today's project was much simpler (just in before meteorological springtime). I purchased a jtec shiftmate off the local CL and converted my Lemond Poprad from 8 to 10 speeds. Hopefully, I will have the right gear on those gravel flats come spring, without loosing my climbing anything gearing (went from a 30/28 to a 30/27, so we'll see if I make it up Oriole hill in May).

About the only way I'll make it up Oriole will be with my new Montesa.

I betcha' you won't have any issues on this year's ride.

Are you doing the Miesville 56?

I snuck in under the wire and got my postcard into them.

Didn't get my card in for the Miesville 56, and instead went crazy and signed up for the Ragnar 105. I hope we get a warm stretch so I can get some 80 plus mile gravel grinds in before early April, or I'm toast.

We need the weather to turn pronto.

I really don't enjoy riding the road bikes when it is cold and the roads are icy.

I need to start piling on the miles though. I have a spin bike at our gym that I use, but I get really bored on that.

I just need 30 degrees and I'll be good to go.

Fwiw That Ragnar ride will be a bear.

My new "classic" bike... a Surly Straggler. I love my C&V rides, but I wanted something a little more modern (its hard to deny disc brakes are awesome) with some "retro" sensibilities (still hard to beat bar end shifters). Kind of a do-all road bike with a wide gear range.

Finished for now. Are we ever really finished? It is a rider, the Brooks I put on it is very old but comfortable. It will be replaced when a real nice B17 appears at a reasonable price at the same time I have money to spend. I have the original Brown Suede San Marco in near mint condition stashed away, it hurts my rear end too much to ride. All of the components cleaned up real nice, surprisingly looking as if they had very few miles, but for the stem. The original Stem was scraped up real bad and has been replaced by a mint Nitto stem I had in my parts bin. I also replaced the front wheel with a decent wheel I found for $15 at my LBS parts bin. I have the matching front low rider rack waiting for me a a friends house, just need to find time to go get it. Here she is.......
