And here's another one. This was given to me recently by Col B (Speedywheels). Ex Kris Denham, this could be a twin for Panzr's bike except it runs 700C wheels front and rear, making it an extra-funny funny bike. I'm fairly sure it's a Geoff Scott/Clamont, though it's been tastefully resprayed in purple and black by Kerry Hopkins. A mix of Suntour Cyclone (probably original) and Shimano 600 (probably added by Kris). The equal-size wheels mean that it is UCI legal, so I'll be time trialling on it in July.

Another really interesting lo-pro bike. I really like how unique they all seem to be.

Here's mine. An early Kenevans:

What a wonderful Eddy Merckx Madrider. It looks to be in pristine condition and a very desirable Eddy Merckx colour scheme. The Cinelli stem really is the icing on the cake. Absolutely beautiful bike, congratulations.

I've got a soft spot for retro TT bikes and the two on this page are really interesting. That Merckx is just stunning. Great paint, parts, build, everything. Absolutely perfect.

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.

nice simple refurb, russells.
easy to get lost in the sea of recent bike p0rn, but in isolation, it's pretty sweet.

Not quite something anything we could ride but a little project I just finished for my grandkids (when I get some but we've all done project bikes without really needing them).

Yep...just went thru the photo album, also had the same one... because I was a lanky string bean kid, I used to sit in the back and my feet would reach the pedals. Cant recall if I was 6 years old or 26.. :roll:
Top job Ken..

Nice Dan.

I notice your frames are starting to get a little larger or is it my imagination?
