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.

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).
