Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

'86 Super Sport. Pics are from the eBay auction where I snagged it for $200 this spring to replace another old steelie (that was just a hair too small for me). I need to get a digital camera!



Dig the old Shimano 600 stuff! Runs great, btw.

Not nearly as much as I would like to....

Spray Nine for the tape and Mr Clean Magic Eraser works excellent in cleaning the hoods.

This is how the hoods looked when I first got them. They were sitting around in an open parts barrel in a warehouse for many years.
