Here's my latest

Image
Paganini Supercorsa with Chorus 10 speed

It's been seen here before as I bought the frame from a fellow member

Like most of my projects, this has moved at glacial speed and still needs some more sorting but I'm happy with the results so far

life's too short to ride showtime bikes locky, you should see the blue coat chipping off on a daily basis, plus forks might need to be rechromed. Oh well. better to ride it sometime than not riding it at all! :wink:

Ahh I forgot about this thread... and here I was wasting time in the Other side of the froum..

Hello Everyone, Long time no hello hello :P

Couldn't help myself whilst my beloved 1972 Viscount / Lambert Aerospace is still covered in muck and sponsored bottles to post an update to the old girl. Mostly the same. but with some modern wheels :oops: Ironically I had to dig out the old Mafac brakes in order to fit the 700c wheels. Hardly what Lambert in England would encourage I suspect. Still.. English frame, Japanese gears and mechanical bits, French wheels and brakes. Looks funny on paper I suppose but its pretty neat when your on the seat :P I don't feel like I've cheated too much. When I found it she was laced with Suntour bits after all, as was the biz in the 70's and 80's..

Went like the clappers on the weekend just gone, and its nice to have some high psi tyres instead of some hard to find Panracer 27x1" rubber. Anyway.. covered in muck, well ridden, just the way I like it 8)

Image
Just look at how that chain sags.. must take that link out :oops: Runs a 7sp 12-21, with a 42t and 53t up front, there isn't anywhere I haven't been able to go yet. I must confess, its a welcome change from the 5sp 13-19 it previously had. Still.. I didn't know any better at the time. And I still hold dear how that little gearbox made me strong.

Image
Pads are rubbish but despite there is heaps of reach on the levers to pull you up alright!

Image
Yep, even got threaded adjusters built in to the levers. Freeking Woot!!! Ahhhh what more could you want :P
b is for bicycle :D
