Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

70's - 80's high-end bikes with American connections

Hi, thought I'd introduce myself to those of you who've not yet had contact with me.

My collection focuses on the American bike-boom from the mid-70's into the mid-90's.

Thus, I have a Speedwell with first-gen Super Record, a Teledyne Titan with Weyless group and a PowerCam crank, a LineSeeker with first-generation Dura-Ace, an Exxon Graftek with a Hi-E group, a Rigi Track bike with a Dura-Ace 10 group, a Masi, a Look Equipe 1986 equipped as LeMond rode in his first TdF victory, and a Colnago Master with "some interesting modifications."

Newer bikes are nice, but you can't beat the older stuff underneath a rider who knows how to make it click.

Its about time you dragged yourself to the Intro forum.
Nice collection of bikes.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.

Greetings! I love the heck out of my handbuilt mid-80s Bradley and my early 90's One-Off Custom built Ti (with Ti fork).
