    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.

    My 1989 or 1990 Raleigh Capri 12 Speed

    I finaly got around to pulling out my 1989 or possibly a 1990 (don't recall exact year i bought it) Raleigh Capri, I got this my Freshman year of High school. It is 100% stock down to the tubes and Golden Boy Tires. Let me know what you think.
