Hi all,
I had today off and thought I wopuld take a pic of my new oldish bike,
I purchased 2 bikes of ebay, hopefully the pics will work,
Anyway the Blucher ( http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0186382122 had a heap of crap on it and a little clamont ( http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0189850430 ) with some older campy on it, anyway I put the campy on the blucher and away we go,
Looks like it could be old athena,
Blucher has canti brakes/ good clearance so she might be a touring/cyclocross rig, I was pleasnatly surprised with the frame actually, tange 2

My Dad, brother and I pulled both bikes apart completely and rebuilt everything minus a chain and the rando's were added a couple of days later!
hope we like it

Cheers
Steve

She looks good mate. Interesting mix of colours with the blue tape and red frame. Well done.
