Getting you all out of the 30's and into the 80's.

Here is one of my completed winter projects. 1986 Rodriguez. A couple of obligatory pre ride photo's. I now have a fresh batch of on trail photo's to post but my home computer is on the fritz and I don't have any way to download the camera yet. ....

1986 Rodriguez custom:

I think you will find everything correct to 1986 with the exception of the repop tires and grips I acquired from our friends at FFB.....

Everything is done to the best of my ability proper to 1986:

Frame- Rodriguez
Fork- Rodriguez
Hubs DuraAce
Rims- Saturne X22
Tires- Panaracer Timbuk 2 repops from FFB
Stem- Salsa Pro Moto
Bars- Nitto
Shifters- DeerHead
Levers- Magura
Grips- Foam Repops from FFB
Front Brake- DeerHead
Rear Brake- Suntour XC Comp
Saddle- Advocet Racing 2
Post- Suntour XC
QR- Suntour
FD- DeerHead
RD- DeerHead
Freewheel- Shimano 6 sp.
BB- Shimano
Chain- Shimano
Cranks-Specialized Flags
Pedals- Suntour XC2
Rings- Specialized
Cable/housing- Generic

You can't get more American than this!


Can you say Chicago Schwinn 1939 DX?


Made in USA: - Frame, Cooks Bros fork, Bendix 2-speed lever action rear coaster hub, Ashtabula stem, alloy seatpost and Joe Breeze machined handlebar adapter shims. Not to mention custom paint by Alan Bonds.

It's a well and true rider and gets worked up Mt Tam at least once a month!



CLICK HERE to see build details on Alan's site[/url]


I can't compete with that. I have wanted that bike since the first time I saw it Alan's site a few years ago. I think you may have missed the sarcasm in my post though :D
