I have five at the moment. Was almost six last weekend.
'85-ish Team Rep.
Frame - 531c
Crank - Ofmega Mistral
F & R Mechs - Campag. Nuovo Record
Brakes - Weinmann Carrera levers & calipers
Hubs - Campag. Nuovo Record
Saddle - Err, Should be Selle Italia Turbo but that on the bike below.
I bought the bike about two years ago and tried to get it back to original spec. as possible (it had awful Miche stuff on it). As it turned out, it's a mix of '84 & '85 spec. The rims are Mavic MA2s (I think), which look like GP4s but take tyres not tubs. I rebuilt both wheels myself, having got a set of Nuovo Record hubs and not wanting to pay the bike shop £30 a wheel!
'85 ish Road Ace
Frame - 531c
Groupset - Shim. 600
Saddle - Selle Italia Turbo. Should be Isca Selle but that's on the Quasar for now.
'85 ish Quasar
Has since got an aero seat-post, the Iscal Selle saddle form the Road Ace & Shim. 600 pedals from the Road Ace as that now has Ultegra SPD-SLs
My newest roadie:
'89 Record Ace
Frame - Reynolds 653.
Groupset - Shim. Sante.
The saddle looks a bit out of place. I'll have to try and get an original form e-bay or somewhere.
I bought this back in '89 wanting a Road Ace. The bike shop didn't have one in stock but had this (one model above). I didn't think I could afford it but asked for the price anyway. Turns out I was just £10 short, so borrowed it.
I could do with a "new" uniglide cassette but can't get one for toffe. Any ideas. Can hyperglide be midified to fit?
Don't ask, I just like the paint job & the Mixte frame. Brake cables need rerouting and could do with new tyres too.
Anyway, I've had to since force myself not to buy a Raleigh Centenary & an '86 Road Ace but next time I may not be so strong!!
