Show and Shine for vintage bikes Melb this Saturday

Postby bicyclepassion » Mon Nov 26, 2012 11:35 am

There is a Show and Shine for vintage and classic bikes this Saturday night in Melbourne. I will have a few of my bikes there, and hopefully there will be many others on display.

These links should get you there.

This summer is set to start with a big shiny bang!! Fixed.org.au, with a raft of sponsors and supporters, is having its first ever Summer Show n Shine.

The FOA Show & Shine is an evening event of fine bicycles and boutique stalls, situated in a 1920′s converted warehouse in North Melbourne. Enter your bike for $5 per category (see below for categories), win prizes, drink coffee, and peruse interesting stalls.

Hosted at the home of fixed.org.au, the Electron Workshop, the evening will be a chance for participants to showcase their pride and joy and check out the best bikes Melbourne (and hopefully other corners of Oz) has to offer. So start building if you’ve got something awesome in the works, start polishing if you’re pride and joy is covered in dust, or start scouring ebay if you want to be a part of the fun!

There’ll be food, drinks, coffee and a whole lot of shiny steel to check out whilst meeting new people, catching up with old mates, and generally having a good time. FYXO will be running his Australian Custom Bicycle Show over in South Melbourne til 5pm, so why not make a weekend of it and head over afterwards for an evening of good times!!

Details

Where: Electron Workshop, 31 Arden St, North Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
When: 1st December, 2012, 4pm-9pm – judging starts at 7.30pm
Info: More info in the forums - important things will be updated here.

Dont forget the show and shine tonight in North Melbourne.
I am taking a a couple of 1962 Malvern Star 5 Stars, a track and a road, if you want to check out some original paint.
Also taking Les Einsiedel's 1925 Malvern Star road bike. This is the bike that he won the 1926 Warrnambool to Melbourne on.
And a Cecil Walker track bike, 1976, with Dura Ace 10mm drivetrain. Set up like John Nicholson's World Sprint Championship bike, when he was sponsored by Shimano.

There will dozens of other intersting bikes there.

That was a great night, so many lovely bikes on show and a good solid turn out. Warren's collection of classic Aussie bikes was truly stunning and a great piece of cycling history.

I'll likely see photo's popping up on other forums soon, so I'll post them here as they come.

Biggest highlight for me was unexpectedly meeting the bloke who built my 'mystery' track frame (as seen below). On this fuzzy morning I can't remember his name but he said he was on this forum. It's such a beauty of a frame but thus far I've only found scraps of info on it, to have the maker tell me the whole story was serendipitous. Mate, you made my week.

Frame builder of your Vitesse was Peter Campbell, who has started making frames again.

Peter Campbell! Thanks for jogging my memory BP, I'll record that info in threads on that bike. From memory he said he also built for Hillman and Cecil Walker, among others? Good to hear he's building again.

For those interested, here's some pics from Gav Bannerman's flickr:

Here is a Vitesse road frame from the early '80s.
Frame number (see below) is hard to read but looks like 379329? last number obscured.
Keen to find out if Peter Campbell built this frame. Thanks.
Components: Suntour Superbe chain wheel, brakes, hubs, Araya rims 27" Suntour derailleurs, power shifters

Peter Campbell is 'Cotterpin' on this forum, maybe shoot him a pm to find out.

Thanks for info.
I have met Peter twice -VCC swap meet and the SnS, thanks to Warren.
He has sent me a PM confirming he built the frame.
My wife bought this bike from the Bicycle Workshop in Ringwood in 1983,
not custom built for her, but her size.
