WTS - Brisbane - Green Tange 80s road bike

Postby Zynster » Thu Dec 13, 2012 10:40 pm

This is a project of mine that I finished some time ago and it's sat unridden. Now it's time to find a new home. This is a fairly loud bike. The colour scheme is pretty bright. I built it up to be more of a cafe racer (hence the flat pedals). It's showy and will have people checking it out.

The frame is unknown. Most likely candidate is a Gemini Club 105 made in Taiwan in the mid 80s. The bare frame is very light, a touch over 2kg. It's been professionally powder-coated at Lewis & Sons and it came up a treat.

The wheels are some strange custom jobs. Mavic hubs laced to Campagnolo Omega rims with 36 bladed spokes. I scoured the internet to find purple tires for the finishing touch.

The shifters and derailleurs are Shimano Golden Arrow 105. Nice and shiny.

Brakes and levers are Diacomp. Brake pads are brand new purple Koolstops.

Cinelli Giro d'italia bars, Cinelli stem, and NOS 80s Cinelli purple and black bar tape.

Not sure what the headset is, but it's shiny and that's what counts here.

Cranks are Suntour Cyclone. Pedals are purple Duo Resilite.

Seat post is a fluted SR Laprade.

Saddle is a new Fizik Aliante Test (I know, but hey, it matches the frame colour perfectly)

Also new cables and cable outers, and new hoods.

Top Tube: 56cm
Seat Tube: 56cm
Weight: 10.8kg

Pretty sure it's a Rapallo frame if it's the same one I saw at Indooroopilly last year. It has the same lug detail that I had on mine. If so, it would be Tange 900 double butted. Cyclomondo should be able to supply the decals. Bike looks nice.
