Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
Here's my latest
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
Ooh, that's nice!
Are the rims "Vento"?
Yes they are, I bought them with the groupset from another forum member
very nice pag....i think that was jaseys yeah? great pickup man!
excellent pickup - you lucky,lucky person
Yep, that's the one, it is a beauty
Thanks, my poor photography skills don't do it justice, here is another angle
how much does it weigh?
i'll guess 9.1kg
I'd be happy enough with that. If I ever buy some scales I'll let you know how close you were

When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.

With a little something I whipped up this afternoon - Selle Italia Special 'Skippy' Edition.
nicely done dan!! that looks fantastic! i was gonna bin my turbo but yours have come out a treat! how much was the roo hide again?
$49.50. I'll save you a piece though.
choice bru!!! might have to do it at yours as i have no tools. lets arrange a time!
looks like a dog with his lipstick out
No bothers. Hope the turbo still has its old cover on - need it as the template.
yep, no issues there.
yeah that pink stem really has to go doens't it? stupid rattlecan knobs.
Nothing a bit of oven cleaner can't fix.
life's too short to ride !! BAN ME NOW FOR SWEARING !! 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!
Finally finished the Colnago
Kempie wins 2012. Gorgeous.
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
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 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 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
Just look at how that chain sags.. must take that link out 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.
Pads are rubbish but despite there is heaps of reach on the levers to pull you up alright!
Yep, even got threaded adjusters built in to the levers. Freeking Woot!!! Ahhhh what more could you want
b is for bicycle
