Lunchtime stroll

Postby Lots of steel bikes » Wed Apr 09, 2014 8:38 pm

Went for a wander during lunch and found a few old bikes.

A Frank Paino with nice lugs

Image
Image
Image
Image

A Nagasawa shod with shamals

Image
Image

A beaten up Tommasini. I want to rescue this one.

Image
Image
Image

A columbus sl Kennedy with the ugliest stem ever.

Image
Image
Image

A Gipiemme Sonic Boom with strange rear dropouts

Image
Image

Another Gipiemme without much rear wheel clearance.

Image

A non remarkable Giant Kronos

Image

Modern but nice Hillbrick

Image

Nice bar streamers?

Crying shame to see nice frames chained up steel on steel. The Tommasini would be worth chasing up for sure

Re the Paino; something about late 80s/early 90s frames that appeals. Similar (same?) lugs as on my Keith Davis ('87). Those guys must have been accessing from same supplier for their higher-qual lugs. :| All 3 I've got are around that era. Just got a ~92ish Miyata Team Titanium in from StateSide. Out of action for another week-ish, (don't ask :roll: ). Am in process of swapping some stuff out. Pics later.
Good thread; you see some interesting stuff locked to poles/stands. 8) I should carry a camera around more, (I hate phone-snapping).
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

The Gipiemme in yellow deserves a nicer stem.

The bikes you find on your walk are a lot nicer than the ones I see.

I mostly see BSOs, but there's the occasional highlight, like the early Trek roadie that I see regularly.

And there's a MAMIL I see frequently, heading the opposite way as I ride to work, on a very nice Pinny.
I don't care if it's a $20 Huffy or a $20k Colnago, if you're riding it, and you're happy, it's a good bike.

Lot of nice stuff lying amongst the Reids and BSOs at uni too

That tommo does not deserve that SS/fixie treatment
Party like it's 1999

I wonder if I'm seen as an OMIL, on my way to work? :|

I think the tomma is too expensive to repaint so it's being put into service as is.

It's a great shame about the Tommasini. I first saw it about a year ago and met the owner. A really nice guy who actually appreciated what he was riding. He is a med student who brought the bike over from the US with him. He left his 'good' Tommasini back in the states.
I've also seen a Pinarello Montello and a Faggin chained to steel posts and rails. The Montello was pristine. The owner had put in a ridiculously low offer on the complete bike advertised on eBay in Europe and to his surprise the seller accepted the offer. He waited and waited and thought he had blown his money but two months later it turned up.

What about those hideous bars on the nagasawa. Deities with their sons and daughters wept.
Can I have some of these?

Did a bit more bike stalking.

An Arabesque equipped Malvern Star with nice chrome. Pity about the bars.

Every proper bike comes with a milk crate attached.
