When I have some spare cash the 'Beer Scooter' is getting a make over, full respray/powder coat, dual pivot brakes (not retro, but I like to actually stop when I pull the brakes) will thoroughly clean the 600 Arabesque mech's & shifters and a nice chainset too, would like to try a Brooks saddle on it too.

Wish I had some pics of mine! Mid 60's Geoffrey Butler 531 with a Campag Gran Sport/Weinmann/Stronglight mix, 65 Carlton 531, been re enamelled and most parts are ready to go back on, will be a mainly Campag fixed gear bike, Specialized Epic Allez with CDA/Chorus/C Record. Can't find any bloody forks for that one :(

Old Ned needs to get posting in this thread I think.

Not exactly a roadbike, but if it belongs to any place it belongs to this place: I got my hands on a GAZELLE Champion Mondial trackbike yesterday. Beautifull handmade in Holland white 531c frame, Campa NR Pista hubs and cranks in very good shape - very nice :) Hope to have pics up soon.

I still haven't taken any of my own pictures of this bike yet, but my build of this Orange Dynamo is very much in full swing:

Image

I am chuffed to bits with this frame. The seller says it was made as a one-off for him in '93 by none other than Steve Wade - that the original owner used to ride with Wade was confirmed by none other than our own Cannondale King...!

I'm afraid I am going for a sympathetic build rather than a full-on retrobike - I intend this to be very much a rider, and something I'll use in bad weather so no esoteric bits, just functional and dependable kit. I've got 9-speed Dura Ace downtube shifters and vintage Dura Ace brake levers (spring return aero ones, beautiful). I've bought a NOS Syncros roadie stem / seatpost and a Shimano factory wheelset. I'll probably end up with a Nitto bar and a Flite saddle, the rest of the stop-and-go stuff is likely to be Ultegra from when 9-speed first came out.

...and I've got this totally gorgeous Bridgestone RB-1 too:

Image

Getting it to the UK was a bit of an ordeal and since I took ownership of it I've done nothing with it apart from buy a Nitto Pearl stem. I bought it to build it into a single-speed road bike and I was going to remove its gear hanger and downtube mounts, but now I've got it I don't have the heart to do it. I was looking forward to giving it a pearly white paint job too but I don't have the heart to do that either.
