i've only just stumbled upon the photos of your bike shawn and i'd like to say two things:
firstly, you're a sick man!
secondly, does your wife have a sister?!!
absolutely AWESOME!! i've never seen one in the flesh before and those photos are simply stunning. this is the kind of thing that we would see at the cologne bike trade shows in the '80s - gorgeous!! are those assos rims per chance?
Hi Craig, thanks, it's the ultimate bike for me. Although I have to be honest and say it is a true trailer queen
The rims are nos wolber profil18's. I found some mid '80's ones with the early foil sticker. Superb rims but more suited to track as they have little braking surface. Not that the brake blocks are ever going to kiss 'em
I have to amend the list below soon, I did a bit of impulse buying through the Summer but came to realise the mid '80's team Panasonic/weinmanns are the bikes I've always loved so I'm freeing up some garage space. Right now I'm packing up the road ace ready for its new home in Quebec
'92 Merlin Mountain titanium
'93 Marin team titanium
'93 Marin team issue
'84 Raleigh Team Pro 753 Panasonic
