Do I recognise this from L'Eroica Beechworth? From memory you abandoned the rock strewn dirt roads for the bitumen fairly early on (in retrospect a wise move).

That's why on those retro gravel/dirt rides you don't ride your good retro bike :)

I dont recognise that bike from L'eroica but that was a diffcult ride I was only able to complete 55kms - I was the fat bloke on the panasonic Merckx. Next year I will do the gourmet ride Day 1 and the Day 2 ride to the winery. There were some sweet bikes there some favs were the pugs and legnano - posted some pics on instagram #leroica

Yes your correct, finished the last 30km on the bitumen. I'd already had one puncture and didn't have another spare tublar so didn't wont/need to risk more rock strewn dirt roads.

Next year at the very least I'll have clinchers, if I could be bothered doing the L'Eroica again. Might even do the Medio Fondo 85km on the Scapin :D (instead of full blown uber light carbon thing this year)

I can't imagine a better classic set-up. A great frame complemented by top notch components.

Thanks...I don't expect many to like it too much as I understand 'funny bikes' are not to everyones taste

I didn't really record the build unfortunately...just a few pics of different handlebar and wheel setups
I initially wanted to go with a Dura Ace but, strangely more Italian parts have been finding their way onto it

This pic is more recent with quite a few different parts...sadly the poor interior lighting doesn't show off the paint to well

It's not period correct but, it will be eventually

Restored for my daughter, it is an upgrade on her gold 70s Malvern Star, as she would like to ride further and faster. New handlebars, shifters, cables, seat and tyres. Complete dismantle, clean, and lube.
Next project was to be a 1990 Peugeot Izoard, which only needs new wheels, a clean and a service, but I may just sell as is because it is a 62 frame, way too large for me.

Normally I don't really go for funny bikes but that one just makes me weak at the knees, it looks so good :) .


Nice work on the Peugeot russells, looks good.

no way! how long did you have it for/where did you get it? do you have photos of how you built it up? ive been trying to hunt down some info on its history. it was built by kenevans for beasley in the mid 80's but that all ive discovered so far. p.s, the white paint on the forks was so thick!

keep a look out on ebay. they come up from time to time but will usually need a bit of work.
