Old School frames with new school tech pics

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

Old School frames with new school tech pics

Let's see some pictures of your Classic framed bikes that have new school components. Your old Masi's with Record 11 or maybe your Serotta Huffy with D/A 7800 or maybe 7900. Proudly show us your hot rods and your muts!! We can see all the restored eye candy over in C&V. This thread is for the bikes that purists scoff at

1985ish Benotto Frame and Fork
Columbus SL tubing
Ultegra SL Deraileurs and Brifters
Standard Ultegra Crank
Super Record brakes for now
ES wheels usually.

Hope 1996 is old enough, since God knows the last time Specialized built anything out of cro-moly.

Cro-moly frame/fork, new franken-Campy 10 speed:

Here's my 93 Bianchi Campione. The shifters are changed from downtube to RSX brifters.

This winter it goes in for an upgrade to 8 speed because I need the RSX shifters on a 1986 Fuji Team I'm converting from 6 speed, friction shifters to 7 speed, freewheel with the RSX brifters. I have two others I'll be building up as well, a 86 Nishiki Prestige and a 89 Centurion Ironman. I like variety.

Curse you steel people. I wanted to upgrade my old Trek, but after many hours on the interwebs/ebay, I punted and bought a new bike instead.

I still think brifters look clunky on those thin classic frames though. They're not as bad with the more traditional stems, but still.

1984 Trek 760. Reynolds 531P frame.
Campy centaur/veloce mix with shimano wheel and cassette.
I'm curious, which modern bars look like the ones I have. I'm looking for something similar in shape and bend to these ones. Thanks!

Give me a few months... My Miyata will go through a transformation, from 7 speed 600EX (with Sora shifter) to 10 speed Ultegra, with CXP33 & Ultegra hub... Just waiting for some sales to get the wheels.

My mid 90s (?) Sampson titanium frame, completed with 9 speed DA and a set of the group buy XRP carbon tubulars. I had to search for the sweet TTT stem for it also.



This is a mid 70s (probably) Fuji S12 that was sitting in somebody's yard for probably 20 years. It was crusty beyond belief. I stripped it, brazed on new STI adjuster bosses and derailleur cable stops, and powdercoated it. Components are DA 9 speed including the bar end shifters, and came from my old time trial bike. It's my new commuter/rain/whatever bike. I need to take pictures with the fenders, rack, and Velocity Fusion wheels I built for it.

if you look closely, you'll note that there's a polar s810i on the bars.

All of these bikes are pretty bad ass, and I appreciate holding onto a good frame and upgrading it over time. Good job.

Double-posted from that other thread:



1992 PDG Paramount Series 3 with 8-speed Ultegra. At some point, I'd like to put Rival on it, but for the bike's purpose (I keep it at my parents' house in Cincinnati for me to ride if I take the MegaBus back home from Chicago), it does exceedingly well, besides the fact that the shifter needs a sprayout with WD-40 every once in a while.

I need a slightly longer stem, just because I have some gangly limbs that make bike fitting hard. For the price I paid, $250, it works.
