    I've got a 1974 Romic and a 1983 Trek 520. The Romic is my nice weather rider and the Trek is the crappy weather/windy day bike. I love them both.

    Romic, full first gen Dura Ace, obligatory shellac'd cloth tape/Brooks.


    Trek, older pic, it now has Suntour barcons on it instead of DT shifters, and silver Cascadia fenders.

    This bike was built in 1989, and then upgraded to ergo shifting in 95. I bought it recently from Stan's brother, whom Stan built it for.

    Two of mine. Both bought as frame only.

    1990 De Rosa with 10sp Campy Record. Professionally resprayed.

    1980 Colnago with period correct Campy Record. Was a total mess, various fence paint, damaged top tube. Had the tube sorted out and then resprayed it myself.

    Was that your door into MTBing? It's nice to see a bike survive the years and not get bartardized. Looks like a Corsa Extra and maybe a size 58cm frame? But if it is a 61cm, would I be able to pry it from your hands?

    It was a NOS 90 Corsa Extra in 60. All NOS C-record with the exception to the something or other Delta brakes.

    I have a total of 15 miles on it and it hangs on my wall only to be taken out for sunny Sunday rides.

    I have other bikes to ride, here are a few.

    83 Sequoia. I put my brooks B-17 on it, a SR MTE 100 setback seatpost, changed out the stem, used white cable housing like stock, gum colored hood covers, 33.3 Jack Brown tires, tune up.....

    When I ride this one, I stay out on the trail too long.

    I'm going to do some sniffing once I pick it up this weekend. It is a 1975. It would be cool if there were some way to tell if this particular one was made by Chris Chance, but the alternatives (Peter Weigle or Richard Sachs) aren't bad either!

    I've had this frame for a couple of years (bought it through another board member) but I just finally got it built up this past week. I've only taken it for a test spin so far, but it rode nicely for that.

    The build is about as period "incorrect" as you could get, although all of the components are semi-vintage. I hope to put a few miles on the bike, and 9-speed STI will come in handy for that.

    Love the paint scheme. What year is the frame? I didn't know bontrager made a road frame. Must be pretty rare.

    There's no serial number on it so I can't be 100% sure. However, the paint scheme is a close replica of Lemond's 1990 "Team Z" paint scheme, so I'm guessing it was built in '90 or '91.

    Keith build custom road, CX and mountain frames until the early 90s. Afterward he did smaller-run "production" frames including a road bike (called the Road Lite) from 1995 to 1997. The production Road Lites are semi-common. I've not seen nearly as many of the custom frames.

    I would have been a bit preoccupied by the car. I like the blue ones. The red ones are a tad boring, eh?

    Yep, the paint is original. It even has the original owner's name on the top tube. Luckily a well placed piece of black electrical tape masks it pretty well.

    Not a road bike but it is what most of us probably road in the woods before we had mountain bikes
    I am having a lot of trouble ID-ing the bike, but it looks like a 1985 mix between a Redline and a CW. The guy I got it from thinks it is a Zephyr, either way it is very rare. I really don't care what it is worth, because I traded an old trumpet for it... Yes, a trumpet...

    My favorite Gitane to ride: '84 Sprint:



    Late 70's Peugeot PX10



    1989 Spectrum titanium - was my dad's. Upgraded to Campy Record ergo's in the late 90's

    The cranks are Sampson's from the late 90's. They're no longer on it because they got over-torqued and both cracked. I've got a set of direction Sakae CR's on there now (similar to the Ofmega Mistral).

    THIS! This is my absolute DREAM frame. I am soooo utterly jealous of this beauty.

    Do post photos when you've built it. Just to torment me.

    I think I win the "obscure" prize:



    A 1959 Hilton Wrigley. H.W. was a famous builder in the Yorkshire region of England in the 50s & 60s. Norris Lockley (of CR list fame) helped me track it down, check it over and get it refinished by Chris Marshall. It was rattle-can spray ugly, so no original finish to save. The down tube decals are vintage originals, but the head & seat tube crest was recreated from another HW frame I found and which is now in Norris' possession.


    I did a nice half-century this past weekend on it, but forgot to take photos of the finished build. Maybe this weekend.

    The 1963 Hetchins Mountain King


    The 1971 Gitane Super Corsa. The Brooks saddle has gone back on.


    And this is my 1971 Gitane TdF that I bought new. It has many battle scars from life in a dozen different countries. There is not one single original part left on the bike. It is still much beloved.


    My babies.
    Plus the 1984 Ritchey Team Comp: photos in the Ritchey thread.

    Leicalad I think mine may be a little more obscure AG Healing were an Australian brand and this is a wierd one its from the Twenties but refinished by the manufacturer in the Thirties. I found a LBS that sells all the spares I need so I should be riding it soon.
    Whats the general opinion should I repaint it or just wax the frame and start riding it. When is an original paintjob too ruined to keep?

    Ah, yes. Well, the old rule of thumb is to build it up enough to ride it a while. Then, if you like the ride and think it's worth it, strip it back down and do a proper re-finish.

    Personally, I think the "new boots and panties" approach is the best homage to a fine old frame. Patina is over-rated, unless it comes with a great back story.

    IMHO, obviously.

    Nice. I like that. The tri-colour 600 was my favourite groupset, though I ran downtube shifters because I wasn't that flash.

    I couldn't afford Dura Ace (nor could I justify it to myself) and Campy was too exotic. Superbe Pro was nice and I had a set of wheels with Superbe Pro hubs for racing.

    The drop is a bit low, yes, and the bar gets really low as you reach towards the hoods. I'll be looking for a bar with a higher hand position.

    My Pinarello Team Montello Super Record. Former original owner was Knut Knutsen the Olympic track Champion at the Münic games i 1972. It's up for restoration and I am looking for a Super Record rear and front derailleur.

    That is a great looking RB1. I also have a 92, but mine a red 57.5cm version.



    But this is the bike I ride the most:

    1980s Gordonson Spartan, I finally got a chance to go for a proper ride! Still deciding on SS ratio. 52/17 seems too hard on the hills. For some reason I really proud of this build, maybe because it's my first road bike.

    .



    This Repco Superlite was a parts donor (700c wheels, cranks, brake levers) mainly because it had nicer bits, the frame was on the big side for me compared to the Gordonson anyway and it seemed a bit too racy for my liking. Shame to take parts off a complete bike though (wheels on Gordo weren't much good, cranks were heavier and brakes were suicide levers). I did test ride the Repco while it was running, somehow I know I'd like the feel of the Gordonson better, even though it's probably not CroMo.

    A friend up in Canada found an old French chain tool on his property and didn't have a clue what it was. He sent me a picture and a link to this site where he found a reference to it.

    The forum is in French but for you guys who like old road bike stuff there are some good pictures and there is always Google Translate'

    Its a 94'/95' Trek 370 that I got for FREE from my platoon leader b/c it had a flat rear and he thought it was a POS. Fixed the flat, cleaned and lubed the drivetrain, new saddle and post and Cinelli bar tape and now I have a road bike that I can really turn miles on... Really enjoyed road cycling since Ive gotten the bike.
    I ride faster than I should...

    63 with 61cm top tube, custom sized by Antonio in '97.

    The top, head, and down tubes have been replaced along w/the fork a few years ago (drove it into the garage). Now has 1 1/8" head tube and fatter top tube (True Temper, I think). Fillet brazed front and the rest is lugged.

    This is my filet brazed 61 Jack Taylor International. It's one of my favorite road bikes. The curve on that fork eats vibrations so good & the workmanship is just amazing. What the hell is that seatpost doing on there!

    Love that Wilier Triestina. I gather that rear Campy stuff is a type of early derailleur. Can't tell by the pics how it works. Any more showing the mechanism? How does it work?

    I like it too. Very cool to see the older road stuff.

    The rider would open the quick release with one lever, allowing the wheel to move in the long, horizontal drop out. This was necessary to allow proper chain tension. The rear wheel moved forward for larger cogs, rearward for smaller. The other lever would select the gear. Once the gear was selected, the rider would flip the first lever securing the wheel, (once the chain was appropriately tensioned), and ride on.

    I've never seen it work in practice, but all this could be done without dismounting.

    Sounds difficult to implement.

    I guess if you shift to a larger cog it would bring the axle forward, but unlikely keeping the rear wheel aligned. Then to get the axle to move rearward when going to smaller cogs perhaps applying the brake would drag it back? Still unlikely aligned. But if it wasn't for on the fly shifting there would be no reason to have the extended levers.

    Seems like the leap to designing a chain tensioner would not have been that great a feat. We sure are better these days at problem solving.

    No Prob. It still seems like something is missing. There are the teeth on the dropout and it looks like you can see a gear on the inside left. So all that would make sense if there was another arm on the left that you could move forward and back to loosen or tighten the chain, which would also keep things in line if there were a gear on each side connected on a shaft. But as it is I'm confused about that part. I'm guessing the gears and teeth keep the axle perpendicular to the dropout.

    With some of the late model "vintage" mountain bikes that get a free pass here, and the fact that the Vortex hasn't been available for a while, and that the road bike world is carbon everything, I think it fits. It "only" has nine cogs in the back too.

    thanks for the awesome photos, that is Vintage and Classic. That Wilier looks great in those photos, love the brown. Stem is cool as well. As for the actual mechanism, I can only imagine how cool that guy riding it thought it was, but the VRC guys back then would have given him hell. Thanks again.

    Here is mine, its old-vintage (early '60s), but restored to a semi-modern interpretation of a vintage track bike, that's still daily rideable. French Pierce Arrow, after the name was sold off. Not a lot of information on these and its not a high end Reynolds tubed frame, but it was a fun project and I'm sure there's few or none like it left. This can be a dangerously addictive hobby.

    I'm not interested in riding racing machines, these 80's Sport Touring bikes ride beautifully.

    Nice resurrection Breckenridge. Probably kind of hard on the body to ride but sure looks great.

    When I built my vintage ratrod bike I had the bars way down which looked great also, but after riding it a few times I had to admit that it was pretty much torture and not efficient anywhere. Steered weird, felt cramped and wrong climbing and dangerous on downhills. I reluctantly flipped the drop stem over. Now it's actually a pretty good bike to ride and still looks ok.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    Thanks guys, just checked back at this thread.

    Yeah, it took some getting used to. I was doing a lot of road bike riding at the time I built it so the stance didn't bother me that much. It probably would more now that I've been spending more time on the MTB, haven't ridden it in a few months. Still, 10-15 miles was about the max for me on it mostly due to the rock hard Brooks bar tape and all the weight on my hands, but its great for a jam around the neighborhood, and a living room decoration.

    Ibis Ti Road

    This is an early-production Ibis Titanium with butted tubing (~1994). The sloping toptube was offered initially but wasn't well received and was later abandoned.

    Raul Alcala's Tour de France TT Bike

    This aluminum time trial bike, built by Mike Melton of the Huffy Special Products Group in Ohio, was raced by Mexican hero Raul Alcala in the 1987 and 88 Tours de France. I picked it up for a friend off the local Craigslist and restored it.

    Vintage road bike thread!!-10032013004.jpg

    While we're on the topic of vintage TT bikes that have been used in anger, this was used in the Barcelona Olympics in the team TT by the Australian Team, Patrick Jonker to be more precise.

    740x Dura Ace, except BB, hubs and cassette.

    1980 Colnago Super

    My first serious resto, about 6 years ago now. Stripped the layers of crap paint, brazed on the cable stops that had been ground off, respray, repro decals, and then the hunt for period correct Campy stuff. Enjoyable project.

    Vintage road bike thread!!-pb270346.jpg

    I got keen on little details, like paint filling the cutouts, even on the fork tangs.

    Yes, Cobalto brakes, and a set of spare Deltas. It's a tad small but not bad. I got it about 15 years ago, before C-Record was considered vintage and cool.

    This thing had its first outing today. Evolution bikes were handmade here in Australia by Ken Evans and his son Paul ... Ken Evans was a very well known frame builder. Groupset is Chorus nine-speed.

Apparently Tom's wife did the paint, and no two bikes were made the same. I love the gold spatter on this one, and everything about it really-the fork is a knockout. It's a little too small for me with the original 650c wheelset, but I really don't care. I can't decide what to do with it yet, I don't know much about tri bikes circa 1989 but I'll likely try to build it up as it would have been back in the day.

    Strangely, these don't seem to be worth a whole lot-apparently roadies don't value the beginning of an era like we do in the vintage MTB world? This bike basically launched Quintana as a bike builder and was one of the first of the type-nearly vertical seat tube, small wheels, and laid-out geometry.

    A little more backstory is here: https://www.slowtwitch.com/mainheadi...superform.html

    Any photo's or general information/impressions ? My internet search yields nothing except a little history of R&E cycles on their website. . This one has a Reynolds fork and is stamped Reynolds butted 531 at the base of the seat tube. It's 57cm square ctc. Spaced for 7sp.

    Nice find! Rodriguez's were indeed the product of Angel Rodriguez at R&E Cycles in Seattle. Very nice lugwork and attention to detail! I had one of their tandems at one point.

    Ok...its a '96 but still...its vintage to me. Not too many Campagnolo-equiped 'Gooses around! It rides great and I see no reason to upgrade for the annual mileage I ride (<1000 miles).

    1980's Mongoose "Mangusta"

    Here's a rare mid-80's Mongoose Mangusta! Only made for a short time, they were an odd mix of components including Campy & Stronglight on an Italian built Columbus tube frame. Their foray into the road bike market was not successful!

    The scan I saw of Lance's Motorola Merckx said Columbus Max tubing......a noodle? Interesting.

    I just finished this bike up tonight after the final part (bottom bracket) arrived on Friday. I bought the frame/fork about a year ago (probably a bit longer). The frame is a 1980 Merckx repainted in Team Faema colors. It's taken a while to come up with Super Record parts (at a reasonable cost) with 1980 date stamps, Merckx bend 3T bars, Merckx stem, and Merckx signature saddle.

    The 1980 frames were pretty unique, although there is a lot of variation in the early frames. This was the first year that Eddy produced frames with his name on them. For years Merckx frames had been made by others: Falcon, Calnago, Kessles, etc. But in 1980 Eddy with the help of Ugo DeRosa set up a new factory in Belgium to produce Merckx Frames. The early frames had a lot in common with DeRosas of the era, unlike later Merckx frames. 1980 frames had Eddy's signature on the seat stay caps, long point lugs, unique BB shells, and Eddy's signature on the top of the flat-crown fork - all of which disappeared over the years.

    I'd been looking for either a 1980 frame or a Team Faema for a while, when this one dropped in my lap. The original color was blue, but the paint was trashed so the previous owner opted for Eddy's 1960's team paint. I was more than happy with the new paint. My only change from how the bike would have looked in 1980 are the tires and the brake levers, which are slightly newer C-Record but I wanted to have aero cables.

    I can't wait to see how it rides.

    (Ignore the pedals, as they were sitting next to my work bench and were easy to put on to check the saddle height.)

    Nice one Laffeaux! I used to own one of those. Really nice bike. I sold it to buy one of the first Litespeed MTB frames, which was a mistake. (Should have waited for a later model with better geometry, etc.) The buyer had it for a couple of weeks and then had a crash when he hit an expansion joint crossing the Williamsburg Bridge in the rain and totalled it.

    Of all the road bikes I've owned, that's the one I miss the most. Enjoy it!

    Not sure if this is the right thread to post this in. I didn't want to put it in the WIW thread, since it's not a mtb.

    I just picked this tiny little road bike up on craigslist and can't find out anything about it. It is a KHS Super Racer from (I'm guessing) the late 70's to early 80's. It has 20" wheels and about a 15" seat-tube. I bought simply as a garage racer, and I absolutely love it, it's a blast to ride (especially after a couple beers )

    Anybody ever seen one of these before? Was it like a display bike, like those mini tents or fridges they use in retail stores? Or is it actually a tiny little kids' road bike?

    There is a sticker that says Denny's on it, anyone know if that's an old bike shop or something?

    Any help would be appreciated, and if I should post this in the "What's it worth" thread, let me know

    I had a friend in college who was only 3'8" tall and rode the smallest road bike I've ever seen. Perhaps this is something like her bike?

    Thank you and I agree. I almost wanted to leave it like this but I built it up anyway. Sourced all of the period correct parts even found vintage cables and housing. The only part I was not able to get were the "no logo" Campagnolo brakes...Because I did not have an extra grand just for a brake set.

    thanks again,

    Fred Smedly, love that Rodriguez, particularly the treatment of the bottom bracket shell. I have long said that the true test of a fine handmade bike lies in how the builder treats the hidden areas like under the bb shell.

    A few more pics of the Cinelli, these from when it first went together. I have made a few changes since these photos were made like shortening the brake housing and added NOS Alfredo Binda straps. A bit of irony for the velophile: The parts donor bike where I sourced the Nuovo Record record group was a Windsor Profesional.

    1983 3Rensho Standard

    For the second look inside my bicycle garage I offer a somewhat unusual 3Rensho Standard model. 3Renshos are not particularly rare, even if they are fine bikes, but this one is unusual because it was made for the domestic Japanese market. An American who was teaching English in Tokyo and needed transportation purchased the bike bringing it home when she returned. Fast forward two decades and I am at a garage sale chatting with two nice ladies when I ask if they had any bikes. The younger one said she had a bike that used to have those funny glue on tires. Next thing I know she rolls out the 3Rensho pictured here. A little negotiating, a trip to the ATM and the bike was mine.

    The unparalleled craftsmanship on 3Renshos make the brand special. The hand cut spear point lugs and flawless brazing create a beautiful machine. As I am sure most already know 3Rensho it is the creation of master frame builder Yoshi Konno who built frames largely for Keirin track racing in Japan. The track models are highly prized and carry a hefty price tag which is fine with me because I prefer road bikes. One last note, 3Rensho became very popular in the 80s and Yoshi Konno eventually stopped brazing frames in favor of doing the design work and running the company. So an early 80s frame like this one is more likely to have been built by Mr. Konno.

    I am a huge 3Rensho fan....oh yeah I already posted that. Well anyway the Specialized 3Rensho is truly "special" had one offered to me last year but I had just bought another bike...that is how it goes sometimes. The good news is that they come up for sale fairly regularly so if your regrets get to bad buy another.

    Two in the family...lucky duck. I've wanted one of Ted's frames for quite a while, but I figured it would be an MTB when I nabbed one. When I saw this road frame, I knew I wanted it...think I got a great deal...glad I wasn't bidding against you, lol.

    Did you see the smaller one too?

    Not vintage, but I'll see your heart shaped cutouts, and give them right back.....

    The build has been improved with time, yellow fenders are gone, but the pics I have of its current state are craptacular.

    Nice score Steve!

    Craig, need a full shot of that sexy red ride.


    mainlyfats, the small one they had was cool...if I had more disposable income I would have bid on it too. I'm glad you're taller than me


    Nate, yeah I was surprised to get it for less than two bills...glad you're taller than me too, lol. The build won't be anything dead serious...I want to build it as a relatively period correct racer...no complete grouppo...more like what a privateer would have put together bitd.



    Full shot:

    Love that bike. I'm a sucker for those flat crown forks. That's a beauty.
