I needed something to get trough the winter and to carry stuff and kiddo so I bought a pristine px-8 from 1975...









the plan was to get rid of the rearcarrier (easyer with a kidseat) and install a porteur rack in the front, how ever, nice racks (like Velo Orange) are a bit on the pricey side so for now this will do...

Just snagged this World Sport off CL last night for $35. Needs tires and a chain, but overall the bike is in great shape. No rust on the frame, wheels are clean, and the chrome and aluminum should only need minimal polishing. First I will get it rideable in the current geared configuration, but I may convert it to a single speed in the future.

I've just built up two recently from the frames up. First may be one of my nicest vintage steel yet. A 73 Raleigh Competition. While not original I used parts that were pretty much all period correct. Campy, Cinelli, Mafac, Brooks Pro, etc. Even has brand new gumwall tubular tires.


I just built this up this past Saturday from all spare parts and not a single penny spent. The tires were in the process of being turned into black walls or the orignal gumwalls. I just ran out of sharpie. lol.

I've got this also. Tips in at 16 lbs. Ebay carbon frame with Campy Carbon Centaur Group.

Also have a Giant OCR1 that is my daily rider but still a decent bike. Just no pictures.

Here is a roadie that I recently traded. Sorry for the messy floor but a little remodeling inside going on when this pic was made.



Cannondale R-500. Enjoyed riding this bike! My first experience with this gear system. I liked it! Thanks!!!

I got it from an older guy that had modded the bars that way so he could rest his arms on the bars. He used some pipe insulating foam and covered it with duct tape. Worked pretty good! Thanks!!!

Pinche, so you're one of the brave ones that bought an Ebay carbon frame... how is it?

there is a lot of talk on Bike Forums about wether or not they are worth the risk. It sure looks nice, I'll say that. And must have saved you a bunch of money.
