    Old school resurrection in progress

    This was actually my first SS but was retired when I got a 1x1. I think its time to try rigid again.


    Been a long time since I set up a canti.


    Semi-vertical dropouts. Just enough play room to run a 36x18.


    Still need some big tires and a brake cable, and to find the seatpost that used to be on there.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    Thanks all for your support, encouragement, and just plain pats on the back. I'm underwhelmed.

    Sweet cranks on that thing....

    SpecialSSauce--Its an 89 or 90, depending on my mood. And in 25 years I have willingly gotten rid of 2 bikes, so don't hold your breath.

    Nice!

    I have just aquired a 1991 Stupie Team (really dark blue with yellow decals) that I am building up in to a fixed gear round town bike.

    The paint is pretty beat up so I am investing in a powder coat (olive green) which will contrast the red sun rims and Machine Tech seat bolt.

    Other highlights include: LH drive tandem cranks, Kogswell hubs and DT black spokes, NorthRoad bars....can't afford Moustache bars :-( and Onza HO front brake!

    I will post pics as soon as it is done!

    Later

    LH Drive? How very British!

    Here's a pic of a bike I converted. This is original Specialized Olive Green Paint, in case you want to try to match it. I eventually sold the frame because it didn't fit anyone in my family who cared.

    Old school Diamondback

    Thought I would post a pic of my campus/commuter SS. Old school SS's are about perfect for cruising around campus. No-one wants to steal them, no major malfunctions when I'm late for class, plus all the condescending looks from the bike snobs. Best part is it only cost $15 from the local thrift shop (plus some parts I had gathering dust.)

    Amazing! Thats pretty much the exact colour I chose (from the 100+ options the coaters offered!)

    Due back tomorrow, built about 30mins after that!
