Thought the seat post was a bit rude, but it seems my spelling is bad :D

Bottom bracket has.... name 092 CCL SLX

Frame has down tube shifter bosses.

Could be late 80's/ early 90's???

This one is of unknown origin. I've had for 30+ years, but it was definitely quite old already when I got it. Probably a custom made from 1950's to 1970's but I've really got no idea. If this looks familiar to anyone then let me know. (Not original paintwork btw.)

Can't quite put my finger on why but that is very nice indeed.

I tend to agree with P!N20. His tange aero frame is on page 1 & this is mine inelegant, but functional

About the only elegant aero cluster I have seen is this rychtarski columbus air

No idea as to how that seatpost clamp works - I can only assume it is some sort of wedge arrangement

I just realised that my photos are showing. Did Photobucket have a change of heart?

Nah, there is a little work around. I like the thread so I used my mod privileges to add "~original" after the .jpg which caused almost all of them to show up again, at least for now

Odd looking brake cable. Looks like the steel coil cable used on rear derailleurs.

Plastic coated. Pretty sure it's original equipment.
