Ah yes, I can't count. I reckon older wheelsets with low spoke counts are pretty cool and rare.

Not sure what this is. Mix of French and Italian components.
Does anyone recognize the fork crown pantograph?

Another Europa. This one has Stronglight cranks. Strange pedals. They are Look and appear to be double sided. But why would the cleat be set in the pedal?

So it can be used as a flat pedal, regardless of side.

Perhaps so. I've never seen these Look pedals before. Couldn't find anything with a google search.
Look delta are my pedal of choice.

I have many first gen Looks but these seem different. Note the reflector and rectangular shape.

I hadn't heard of Michalo but did a search and there's a bit of info on this forum. Interesting connection with Ken Evans.
It's a long way from you up here in Queensland.

Thanks TK I've learn't something. I now realize that my pedals I was referring to are termed first generation racing pedals. Your's and the ones on the Europa are the 'real' first generation.

They were NOS, shrink wrapped onto a backing card complete with cleats and fittings. Good price too, came from Belgium (eBay)

The last one I bought came from qld. I ended up selling two of mine back to one of Ron's (who started Michalo) grandsons a few years back.

Viner Special Professional. Doesn't look too bad from this distance but up close looks like it hasn't been cleaned for twenty years.

sure they're not ventos? shamal's were 12h, ventos were 16h, with the same pink labels.
zonda's had blue labels and were 16h, and sciroccos were 20h and lower profile, again with blue labels.
today's nerd lesson is complete.

It is so frustrating that due to where some bikes are positioned it is impossible to get a decent photo. This Ken Evans is an absolute beauty.

Even though I love my food, I'm starting to look forward to your lunches, Lots of Steel Bikes, more than mine.

Here's an idea…… Before the owners of all interesting bikes park them for the day they need to consider the photo-ability of their bike with regard to it's location. I propose that your university publish a directive instructing all owners of interesting bikes to consider this most important aspect of bike voyeurism before they park their bikes.
