    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....

    Besides, maybe some folks like them some hairy chain now and then.....

    Shamus, that Arabesque is gorgeous, one of my top old school roadie lusts. If it were black, I'd be heading to your house right now!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    1983(or 84?) Schwinn Le Tour
    Just picked this baby up yesterday for almost nothing.
    Nothing too special about it, other than it being in perfect condition...

    A Le Tour with aero shifters. I didn't know that they came that way. Looks like it's seen little use.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Got it from the original owner, including the owners manual. The bike is pretty mint. The only parts that are not original are the wheels and seat, even the bar tape is original to the bike

    I had a little collection with a couple of Rossin's and an '89 Koga Miyata. Just moved and sold off my collection except for this '92 Paramount. It fit's me perfect. Has white bar tape now.

    There are some beautiful bikes in this thread..
    This is my 85 PH501. I found it just before it was about to be melted down. It was missing some parts and in need of a complete rebuild.



    This is a Swiss Titan from the late 80s. The paint job is unusual, but it's growing on me.

    Fillet Roadie...





    1989-ish Quintana Roo Superform-with a vintage MTB pedigree.....

    According to Tom Teesdale's website, the first Quintanas were built with Excel tubing, fillet brazed over tig welded Tange Prestige, with a two color spatter paint-Imron. 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

    I love this bike it is my main rider. Its an 82ish Serotta Club Special. It rides like a dream. I know the parts are nothing special but its what I had and as I said its a rider.

    I just pulled my dads old 70's schwinn continental out of the attic.
    it hasn't been ridden in 20 years
    it is all original
    I think I am going to brighten it up a little bit and ride it
    it needs tires tubes rim strips bar tape cables and a chain
    it also needs alot of grease and cleaning

    i did a quick search and these bikes dont seem to be very valuble
    so i don't think anyone will hate me if I cut the bars or paint it or molest it in any other way
    I am open to any suggestions or opinions if you have any

    No offense intended , you would be better throwing money at something that would make a better rider. Heavy boat anchor frame with marginal components IMO.

    I actually agree with you it is a heavy boat anchor with marginal parts.
    I was kind of thinking super low budget build just for fun.
    I was thinking of putting a $100.00 limit on the build
    cheapest stuff I can find
    just a fun bike to add to the list of many many bikes
    I come from a bmx background so I am used to a 40Lb bike
    I am not triing to race it or make something spectacular
    I just wanted to bring it back from the dead

    Yeah, you're right, I know. The post is Campy Record, so it's somewhat appropriate though not silver. And the stem, well, I've been meaning to get on the roadie forums and see if anyone wants to do a swap for a silver one.

    In my defense, I'll remind all that the tires are glued on. This Luigino has never been near a set of clinchers.

    Couple of old Raleighs. First is a '77 Super Course, recently repainted. A chrome fork will be going on it soon because the threads on the original somehow got buggered up.

    The mixte is a Reliant, I think an '82 model, which my wife has owned since new. It's next on the list to work on after I finish my Raleigh and my old Mongoose.

    '77 / '78 Della Santa

    I think I've gone to the dark side A vintage roadie project has been on my list for some time now, a Ritchey /Mertz / Glmour /Sachs, etc. Just found this cream puff in Reno, I believe this Dela Santa is a '77/'78 . The owners grandaughter kept the old Brooks saddle for sentimental reasons. It has all Campagnolo Nuovo Record components. Tubing is Reynolds 531. The lugs are little fancier than other Della Santa's I've seen. It's a 54mm with 54mm top tube so it should fit. Roland Della Santa has been making custom frames for 40 years and built many TDF frames for Lemond. There's no serial #'s I can find but he's still making custom frames in Reno so I'm sure he can pin down the year, maybe. A lot of this old frame builders seem to have short memories

    Skip was a frame builder in Wimberley, TX (between Austin and San Antonio). I think he did mostly steel. Nice guy who did good work. I'm pretty sure he's not building frames anymore.

    Cycles Jan de Reus

    Detailpics of the Jan de Reus I took immediately after collection >>



    Meanwhile I gave the Reus a serious overhaul:
    - new (loose) balls and Motorex grease for the bearings
    - rust preventive oils inside the frame
    - cleaned the lever hoods
    - new red Velox Tressostar cotton tape and Velox plugs for the bars
    and more

    Finally I glued two new tubes on the rims. The Reus is ready. It is my 2nd Reus, the other being an 80s bike. The 1st one already impressed with excellent ride qualities. A quick spin around the block learnt me this 70s Reus is no different: rides beautifully.

    Finished result:


    I only have to put the original pedals with clips and red leather straps back on.

    The cockpit with the red Tressostar tape:


    That 1A stem requires odd size tools. Italian probably.

    The Jan de Reus was handbuilt by Jan de Reus in Zwanenburg near Amsterdam.

    Campy Slingshot

    Yeah, I like it! The Campy Chorus is all coming off along with the wheelset. And the fork. I found a Manitou 700c roadbike fork that will replace the Wound-up fork currently on it. I never got used to the Campy shifters, so I'll load it up with nice used Ultegra. Sure is beautiful in this state though. The excellent Chorus belongs on a 'nice day' bike,maybe a Bianchi or Basso or something Italian. I bought this for my crappy ass roads. My Trek Madone while nice,was killing my old knees, and I got lucky and found this with a LOT of searching. You know, like going through 60 or 70 pages of Google. Every week. For a few months.This is one of three road Slingers I have as well as two MTB's and a Cyclocross frame. Not braggin' just sayin'. Keepin' the Slingshot faith alive near (for now) Detroit!

    I didn't know there was a vintage road bike thread on here. It is kind of embarrassing, since about half of the bikes I own would qualify, judging by the other posts.

    1973 Centurion-badged Windsor Pro - Full Campy NR, sew ups.
    1982 Trek Touring - Bought new as a custom frame and went through a couple of builds, currently an indescribable mix of early to mid-80s parts.
    1984 Koga Miyata Team Pro - Bought in Holland, full Dura Ace
    1985 Serotta Nova - Campy SR/NR mix
    1985 Santana Arriva Tandem
    1987 Nishiki Linear TT bike - custom 24" sew-up front with Araya Aero rim and Panasonic tire.
    1989 Serotta Nova Special - Campy C-record Cobalto. Ridden almost daily.
    1990 Santana Sovereign Tandem - Unreal - Filet-brazed perfection, with 1 1/8" threaded XT headset, XT tandem cranks and cantis, custom Santana steel stem.

    I'll stop there. I have newer road bikes, too.

    Several sets of wheels, including a set of Phil Wood hubs laced to Mavic GL330 sew ups, and a set of wheels with a Campy Hi-Lo rear hub laced to Mavic GEL280 rims.

    Yes, it is a disease. These are the bikes I kept.

    How about a snap of that Centurian?> I ride an early 70's Super Elite. Solid, stable, smooth, well built and very underrated.

    I don't think I have any pics of dad's early 70's Nishiki; I kidnapped it when I went to college and took it w/ me, but ended up getting a Nishiki MTB to use instead, didn't use the roadbike so much after that.

    But a couple of years ago, wanted to get back into a roadbike, but not into CF. So, I've now got a bike, would be 'vintage style', I suppose, or 'retro', but, is newer. (However, since this particular frame has been discontinued for a few years now, maybe it's on the way to being vintage?)

    Greetings Boat;
    Looks new, I would keep it and rebuild it . From what I recall they were wonderfully resilient ,responsive, and quite expensive.
    Regards

    Yo Boat;
    Hybids are IMHO the devils work. Remove the stem and bars and keep it a road bike. There are really only road and mountain bikes and never the twain shall meet!! Keep it original, It's a great bike.

    I picked up this gem last week. If I can get the stem & headset off, I might return it to drop bars, otherwise I'll add a Wald basket and make it a grocery store bike.

    Wow, that's a beauty! I don't think I've ever seen an International in that color. I have a '73 Super Course with Campy Gran Sport, but I replaced the group with Suntour stuff that works better.

    Funky TT bike

    I believe it is a Canadian built DeVinci? It used a 700c rear wheel and a 650c front.
    Its built with Campy Super/ Nuevo Record.
    The Mavic Challenger disc wheel is made from aluminum, appears to be turned.

    Not sure exactly what model but I think it's a Mexico because of the crimped tubing. It has airplane gears which are a little tough on my hills.

    Nice 720! I love Trek's early bikes in red, I don't see many of them compared with the silver & champagne finish.

    Thanks Earl. Still remember the day I spotted it hanging in the gagrage of a house I was showing way back when...didn't sell the house, but I called the listing agent to ask if the seller would part with the bike...was pretty happy when she told me I could have it for $75.

    Love that 720. Great bikes.
    This is my gravel, chipper, commuter. Mid 70's Centurian Super Elite. It's confused also. Excuse the sun washed photos.

    Jeff, very cool build on your Centurian...I like that a lot...classy and functional.


    Earl...nice TX. I have another vintage Trek hanging in the garage somewhere with very sparkly blue paint...I'll try to dig up a pic.

    Very pretty, is that an Elance? I spotted one of those at a flea market last week, but it was too big for me.
