    What did that bike do to you that you felt it necessary to subject it to that saddle?

    Try not to cringe.

    Late 80s Bianchi Super Leggera, renamed the Jiffy Squid as one of my bar bikes. Italian made frame. Weird mix of road and mtn parts. Nate has the brakes now, MCS has the seatpost.

    I figure the mtn bike parts help tie this thread into a mtn bike forum

    Timmy got close enough. TVT built them, but for the first year or so, they came in as Eclipse.

    I'll spare ya'll the full pic, it's pretty non VRC, and hey, it's a consignment bike, I don't dust 'em, alright?

    Also, some more DA 10 for Hollister....

    HHHmmm... so how old does a bike have to be, to be "vintage"? Am I vintage? LOL... Maybe I'll post up some photos of my Capri I got when I was in 9th grade back in my 1989/1990 school year.

    I have always kept her indoors, she is 100% stock down to the tires and tubes. Still looks like new. I'll post her up later today for everyone to see.

    I've got a few old road bikes I could throw in here. My Merckx is the one I wanted ever since seeing Team Motorola on a cereal box when I was in high school.<br> It now has a proper pantographed Merckx stem on it- that I got from Gord Fraser. And it's all 8-speed DA. Love this bike.

    That Merckxx is gorgeous. I'm still kicking myself for passing up the chance to buy one of the team bikes used for the Paris-Roubaix, back when Motorola was clearing out their team equipment at a race in Downer's Grove, IL.

    Yep. Nagasawa's are a class act, but not particularly rare, especially in sizes like that.

    Here's my Merckx (now sold on). Hopefully I can add the Chance to this thread soon....

    Very nice. Great C Record track pedals too! I had a Merz from about the same period and Jim also used the rounded ends for the stays and forks. I personally don't get it, as I prefer scalloping.

    Here is another one. This was made by Chris Chance for the owner of the "Bicycle Exchange" shop in Cambridge, MA when they celebrated the 50th anniversary of the shop in 1984. The headbagde, signature and anniversary logo are sterling silver. As far as I know it was never ridden and is in new condition. The shop still exists, but has new owners since 1998.

    I've said it before, but man, that bike is so fantastic!
    And a hard act to follow--especially being so nicely shot--but I'll add in here my latest pick up:
    3Rensho Super Record Export Aero in metallic rose.
    Just iPhone shots for now, but once I get a few more things settled I'll take some proper shots with an SLR. The ride is very nice

    I remember a year or so ago a thread about the origins of the New England segmented fork, and how Ted Wojcik pretty much came up with the design and it was copped by Merlin and Fat, but if you look at the crown on that CC Pista, you can clearly see and earlier example of the design.

    Ya,
    it's mine. I think I have only built a few road bikes. It's fron '92 or so.I am building a couple of Columbus Zona bikes right now but I bet the lifetime total is less than twentyroad frames. That bike was made with a special prototype tube kit made for a single event. It's stupid-light and I went further by sanding and polishing all the tubes before welding. I also did some nice detail work on the drops but it started cracking about ten years ago. I still ride it a bit because it fits me so perfect. The fork is a Dave Tesch and the stem is Ibis. It's a mix of 600, DA and a sprinkling of Campy.

    You folks have some amazing cycles. Thanks for posting.

    I have a few classics myself, mostly just fun stuff.

    So this wandered through over the weekend. Not too sure the Ksyriums help it's VRC cred, but it's been raced and loved by it's owner through many parts kits, and I believe a paint as well....

    Besides, Ted's stuff is just tasty.

    Me? I love the color

    Hey I just purchased a Bontrager Road Lite. Any info on the sizing of these bikes? It has a sloped top tube and I am unsure of the size of the frame. Pics when it arrives.

    They are pretty basic frames but I have always loved their paint design. I need to get a jersey to match now because those were awesome too.

    I traded this rare bird for the Look. The Grove was a much much nicer frame in it's construction but the Look has always been a favorite. He had a NOS Look and I had the Grove he wanted. Worked out for both of us.

    Well, lets talk. Velo Cult and Nobilette have teamed up to produce a Randonneur together. I will selling them at a loss and for way below what I should. Just doing this for promotional purposes so the deal will be incredible. E-mail me if you want more info.

    Sorry, that's all I have right now. Soon I will do some studio shots of it. Although, that photo above was when it was just built, not it's not looking so hot. I ride that thing really hard. I don't shy away from MTB trails where most Rando riders stick to fire roads.

    Have this vintage (mid 1980's) Da vinci TT funny bike. I planned, but have not done yet, to restore and mount on my family room wall.
    The bike has a 650c front and a Mavic Chellenger machined? spun? aluminum rear disc.
    Campy Super Record cranks / Nuovo Record derailluers, Modolo carbon shifters, brakes and brake levers.

    Does anyone have any solutions for removing the " Covina Valley Schwinn" lettering from this wheel without damaging the paint of the disc?

    I have been researching a vintage touring bike I recently picked up. It was built by Greg Diamond who was out of Santa Barbara. Going by the parts, I would place the build as 1984.Here on VRC Diamond is mentioned twice. Once by Ken B in a thread about Sky's Chris King built Mtb. and another time By KB11 in his " Stuber/Drake/Shickle" story (both these threads are great stories worth reading again by the way.......). Mombat also mentions Diamond in association with their Pawley/Diamond frame.

    Not much out there on the internet but I am finding a little. Certainly part of the fun of collecting is the reasearch. Haven't made time for a good picture yet of the bike, but I will post one here eventually.

    For now you will just have to take my word for it. Lugged frame in black. Beautiful construction.

    Anybody have any good Greg Diamond beta that can't be found through a google search, I would enjoy hearing from ya.
    Thanks,

    Greg Diamond

    Hey Tim,

    Funny coincidence that you scored a Greg Diamond, last week on Thanksgiving day at my in-laws in Del Mar, CA, I went and looked at a Greg Diamond that a local had for sale... unfortunately, it was too small. Here is all I found on Greg before heading down that day.

    I've been so inspired lately as I've been restoring my green 1989 Schwinn Circuit (top of the line American made Columbus SL steel frame) and my yellow 1989 Schwinn 974 (top of the line American made Gary Klein/Schwinn aluminum) race bikes... I've decided to build my own race bike. I've gathered all I need to build a lugged steel frame and fork, Dedacciai tube set, cast lugs, 1 1/8th threaded steerer lugged fork, Tioga Pro headset, and the Tim Paterek frame building book. I'm drawing up the plans now for a frame building table/jig. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked about the undertaking, wish me luck!

    Anyway, here's all I found on Greg Diamond, he is mentioned or referenced on 3 full pages on bikeforums.net, so there is probably more I missed. Just log in and do a search:

    Per the BikeForums.net archive, check out Jon Avery at Open Air Bicycles in Ventura, CA (http://openairbikes.com/about.htm) he rides a Diamond touring bike and has been in business in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area since 1983. He may have some first hand insight into Greg and his local bike designs.

    Great score Tim, I look forward to seeing the pictures!

    Damn, those Looks are nice!

    Here's one of mine. I'm trying to decide between Suntour Superbe and Campy for when I put gears on it.
