Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking
That Eurosport probably weighs 11kg and he says he can lift it with one finger !
Been watching this old Malvern Star as it's not far from home http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/370747430507 ... 1423.l2649
Just can't bring myself to bid on something with badly bent forks, non-original paint and only some of the original parts. 1949 though...

You're probably right about the weight. It might even be closer to 12kg.
But what kind of man can't lift 12kg with one finger?
I've got a very similar MS frame which is slightly creased but has straight forks, maybe you need both?

If it's just the bars, get one of these benders and start bending. With that premium on spaghetti, rust (which some have noted has been selling well) will be relegated, and we will see a new cottage industry develop.
It needs to be 25.4 or whatever in the middle for the stem clamp - so how would you get that done on some bars that are sufficiently long enough to give scope for adequate "artistic expression"?
There are people who eschew butterfly bars for touring because they flex too much. Dunno what they'd make of this.

You might like this one then too.
That is very cool, especially that chunky as hell chain.

Interesting... thanks for the mention. I'll ponder more and get back to you if it works, but still haven't convinced myself yet the frame is worth the dollars .

It went for $900 something, reasonable.
A cheap Colnago (?)
It appears to have been correctly identified in the comments.
You're absolutely correct - I didn't read that far
no less amusing though
UTSO (Unidentified Tandem Shaped Object)
I object, that frankenbike is not "tandem shaped". Looks more like the result of a terrible accident
That was being a little harsh - I had plans along these lines for that UTSO
Oh the huge manatee!
Apart from it's shocking visual presence, I don't think that chain arrangement would work for long, but perhaps just long enough before it snaps in half.
Verry nice Munga
Think Pink... Repco Eurosport Tria in SA
It's a DUNGA why are they bidding???
