Just had to carry that piccy over from the previous page - a feast for the eyes.
Meanwhile back at the ranch i have just acquired a nice 60cm Koga-Miyata, many thanks to another forum member who "read my mind"
It was originally purchased in the Netherlands in 1983 - the factory manual is a delight to read !
Anyway took it for a "spin" this morning and it rides very nicely.
Needs a few adjustments and maybe some new cables and a longer handlebar stem to fit me.
Wheels are 700C and look original but the long reach brakes suggest to me that frame can take japanese 27 inch wheels but it was maybe sold in Netherlands with the more euro 700C size wheels.
Rims are Wolber and hubs Shimano.
It is in an excellent state of preservation and i will only alter it as above and maybe put some clip-in pedals on it.

Just about to start another project..

Bertoni superlight. Bertoni was a brand created by the American importers of 'Italvega' after they changed to the (Japan manufactured) 'Univega' brand. Bikes were build mainly by Bianchi and Daccordi. The bikes were sold both with Shimano and Campagnolo it appears. I will be building it up with Shimano 600.
The frame has been repainted and the forks re-chromed , just looking for some wheels now.

Bit of a mix of parts but here's mine. The frame is Ron Whitehorn built for Jan Christoff who constructed his own high end custom bicycles in Adelaide, this one is a 1984 model. The remaining Super Record groupset is sitting in boxes in the garage as I don't want to destroy it. Was converted to 8 speed shimano in the early 90's by my father who was the original owner. I've built it up to be a regular ride for myself but the RH brifter doesn't always shift the best so I am on the hunt for a replacement set.

Apologies for the dodgy mobile phone photo but here she is with a longer stem, still needs some bar tape though...

Hi guys and gals!

I am a new member to this forum, but I have been frequenting this site and its forums for a while, and thoroughly enjoy it. I thought I would post my latest project, my beloved Ricardo Racemaster. My old man bought it from the factory door in 1981/2, and it has been gathering dust in the garage pretty much ever since. Unfortunately, I did not take any "before" pictures, but she was in a fairly bad way. Anyway, after new cables, a bit of a polish, and removal of the years of grime and surface rust, she has come up in almost as new condition. Moreover, and most importantly, she rides like a dream! I now use it as my every day commute to work/uni.

If anyone around Adelaide (or anywhere really) also has a passion for Ricardo's and is interested in offloading any parts/frames, hit me up.

G'day Thom. Check the retro forum and you will find a thread dedicated to Ricardo love.

I to love Ricardo's. Strange given that I live in Brissie and have never, ever been to Adelaide. I have a couple of Elite's and a Nuovo. As well as a number of frames made by Ricardo (leisure Industries) for other brands and shops.

IMHO they are a honest workman like Australian made bike.

Hiya Scott,

I have checked the 'Ricardo' thread... excellent reading - but thanks anyway!

Yeah, the Ricardo is definitely a wonderful beast - and solid as a rock. Some say they're a tad on the heavy side, but for me, that's just stability! I'm also a fan of the 70s/80s Raleigh racers/roadies, and on the look out for one of those bad boys for the next fix up job! I might need a bit of luck though, I think.

What we need here is some Spanish flavour,

My Spanish Razesa frame, never heard of Razesa????? They built the frames for Zeus during the 70's & 80's, Razesa frames are all handbuilt (guess the labour was cheaper in Spain than anywhere else in Europe at that stage, bit like China, India or Mexico today).

I saw a Razeza on Herschell Street a few weeks ago. Very nice looking bike with chrome lugs.
