Greetings from Melbourne Australia

Yet another Aussie who forgot they had registered on this site who is now going to post.

My interests are mainly in 1970's - early 80's race bikes and acquiring Campagnolo bits, for them, that still have their original anodizing.

The bikes/frames must be 'Riders' so concentrate on 54 cm - 57 cm frame sizes.
So far, the stable consists of:
Australian bikes
Hillman (Track Bike)
Cecil Walker (Road Bike) but really a Paconi
Brazell (Ballarat) This bike and I have been through a lot in the 50 or so years that I have owned it. Lost arguments for road space twice with cars on this frame so it has had some frame parts replaced.
Apollo Touring bike, Toured Europe on this one and overloaded it to the max. Did not even break a spoke! This was actually made in Japan but was bought locally so will let it stay in the Australian section.
European Bikes
Kessels Merckx
Eddy Merckx
Gitane but this is still a NOS frame so maybe dies not count Is quite a unique frame as used in a eighties Tour De France.

Have plans for a couple more bikes but not sure that the wife will understand .

Thanks for Reading!
