Enjoyed it very much. Ill have to start training for the climbs again so I can keep you in sight!

I was gonna try a link to the bryton with a map of our ride, but it would appear that i did not turn it on properly so it is not recorded.
So FWIW, lets see if this one works - its a ride that i did down the Tweed about a week ago, on the last day of my hols at Tumbulgum.

Thanks for the ride last week. Will be back again on Sat with another Hillman. If we are going Wacol way there is a race at Carol Park at 7.00am if anyone is licenced.

I like Wacol - lots of Kangaroos.
Especially the big one that sometimes hangs out in the Railway station carpark.

As of this morning (5am Brisbane time) I became a owner of a chromevelato 1976 Benotto 2500 AE, there's a fair bit of work to be done, the finish shows it's age, once it arrives (coming from he UK), I'll run it up to the chromers, get his opinion on whether it gets the chrome stripped & re-applied or whether I just take to it with the metal polish. The seller is providing a new set of NOS Benotto decals with the bike as the old ones have dried & are beginning to flake, stay tuned, once the frame lobs I'll take some piccies. It will be built period, so will be gradually acquiring the rest of a 600 Arabesque gruppo (I already have some parts).



Putting the Superlite together with Campy Nuovo Triomphe parts, will be fitting a new cartridge BB, there's some play in the Campy BB I have here & I'm not going down the same path that I did with the Vantage (replace the ball bearings only to find out it was too worn to be servicable). I'm thinking that a few need to go to make way for the stuff that has to be finished or is coming (Benotto Ottimo to be finished, Razesa on way & now Benotto 2500AE on way), so if you're looking for say a Repco Vantage (shim SIS 6 speed touring) or once it's finished a Repco Superlite (Campy Nuovo Triomphe), give me a yell.


Video's of this mornings ride should be up on you tube either late tonight or tomorrow morning, I'll post the links. I'm currently trying to download a version of Adobe CS6 (which apparently will run on XP), if it works, in future I'll load music onto the vids, it appears the kaiser baas either doesn't have a mic, I've farked up the settings when I set it up or it is very. very suppressed, as I'm not getting any soundtrack at all (great news for Mr. Pottymouth), hopefully I can work this stuff out.

Nice ride this morning despite the savage weather.
Maiden voyage (for me) on the 1983 Koga-Miyata.
Thanks again.

I have calipers, levers & D/T shifters here, but if you really want to get rid of them let me know, you still have to give me a price for the Campy RD.

Got so much Suntour stuff here I should probably go with that, but generally they were Record or Arabesque gruppos fitted to them.

It didn't take you long to burn past me up a hill, you certainly got 'into' it quick enough.

There you go munga, you obviously have a buyer at whatever price you want for them.

I'll take my $0.99, vanish off into the distance & bring some more retro gear into Australia, there seems to be a shortage of retro parts, so if I keep collecting bits from O/S, someone will have plenty of stock here for the future.

Hola, encantado de conocerlos a todos. Mi nombre es Alberto, soy nuevo a la cueva de Wal bicicleta, espero conocerte pronto a todos.

Me va a correr temprano grupo Suntour, pero necesito un eje 126mm y algunos manillar doblado TDF o similar.



Hey it's all in Spanish, can't seem to locate a model on any of the Razesa's, the sticker on the R/H side of the top tube states 'Handmade', this from what I can trace is fairly standard of Razesa bikes, very low volume Spanish specialist manufacturer. It ain't the lightest beast around, 3.4kgs (frame, headset, BB & fork), it's a fairly close geometry to my Malvern Star Kenetic, so should ride very similar (really nice to ride), so I reckon I may put the Repco Vantage up for sale.
You can't see the very sexy, Zeus aero seatpost, it arrived with the old quill chopped off & jammed in the frame, was 'fun' removing it from the fork, they'd also damaged the thread on the fork, by clamping it in a vice whilst trying to cut the stem or trying to remove it after they'd cut it off, a few minutes with a die & all is well, cranks are Sugino, the rest will be early Suntour. It came with the Zeus seatpost, a set of band on (very rusty band) Simplex D/T shifters, a pair of early Exus pedals (you know, the ones that shim copied for their SPD-SL range) & a period mini pump. The pump & seatpost I'll be using but the other bits are excess, if you need either the Exus pedals or Simplex shifters give me a yell.

Considering I purchased the bike on the 28th of Nov, I had given it up as a lost cause. I'm sort of burnt by the whole thing.


No it won't be ready for Raturday, I need to find a 126mm wheelset (700C prefer not in NOS condition as this one's not a showpony) for it & a set of bars, I cleaned up one of the quills I had lying around & fitted it this evening, it's very low around the steering head, so definitely need a set of TdF or similar bend bars, I'm even thinking of fitting a set of randonneur bars on it.

Better news, the Benny 2500 should be getting packed up in the UK as I speak, the seller is also including a Benny pump (nice bloke for a pom), need a set of 700C 126mm (should be anyway) 600 Arabesque wheels or hubs, munga has a FD (which I'll buy unless it's like NOS, then it's really better suited to someone who's trying to build a pretty bike), so I just have to chase a RD & a set of cranks.


Wazza, I may not make Sunday, we're racing Sat night & I have to work Sunday night, so I'm not sure what sort of pace I'll be comfy with, what time (if at all) I'll be ready to ride & how far, if I commit to Sunday I may disappoint you guys & spoil the ride, I may just be better going for one when I feel like it.

It's probably too nice for what I'm looking for, I really think it would be better on someone's project rather than just a rebuild like I'm doing, I'm not fixing any paint, it's got a small dent under the R/H shifter, quite a bit of patina around, unless you're super desperate to part with it, then I think it might be better going to an owner that really needs it, but I'll chat with you when I see you Raturday.

yeah i'm happy to leave it in the drawer. speaking of drawers, i'm not sure where those old triomphe/victory derailleurs are, mate.
i know the're here, but i've got half a bike shop here until some guy moves into his house. once all that's cleared out, i'll get better access to my gear and i'll dig them out for you.

I'll be there but can't stay for coffee after, got shite loads to do to get ready for tomorrow nights race meeting.


Issues with Alberto, need to source some long reach brakes (preferred option) or a set of 27" wheels, currently looking at a set of Tektro R559 calipers, anyone had any experience with these?

Alternatively the Miche performance 57mm calipers - I may have a spare set if you can wait a week.
