Ladies and Gents,
Is anyone here heading to Italy in early September for SSWC 2013? I’m looking at getting to this one and it would be great to have a beer or three with a few Retrobikers while I’m there.
If you are coming what are you going to race??
Now that we have our own little section lets start having some rides, shed sessions or whatever retrobike event takes your fancy.
I'm not sure how much traffic we'll get here but I'm thinking that it may be a good idea to include the state in the event title but its not that critical.
I’ve just started my first M700 Deer Head project and I’m in need of a period set of cranks and chain rings.
Does anyone have something lurking around their man cave that they’d be willing to part with? Condition isn't that critical as long as they are usable.
I’m trying to locate some proper 1930s style bar/stem mounted bottles and cages for my early 30s racer and was wondering if anyone knows where I may be able to obtain some.
Alternatively if anyone has some good photos of proper vintage cages mounted to the bars can they post them so...
A bit of a long shot, but I'm after a Syncros Powerlite fork with a good crown and 1" steerer.
I have a good set of Powerlite legs so the condition of the legs is less critical.
Anyone got some they'd like to part with??
I’ve had this Yo Eddy for a while now and thought it was probably about time I put some photos up here for the viewing pleasure of the masses.
An eBay purchase from the original owner who at the time built it up with all the parts which they considered to the best at the time. The bike even...
I'm after the following XT hubs to complete a build:
FH-M732 (rear XT hub)
HB-M730 (front XT hub)
either 32 or 36 hole will be fine as long as they both have the same amount of holes.
Let me know what you have.

Those that are regulars on this site are likely to remember this bikes as it appeared a few times on eBay for stupid money and never sold. When it then appeared at a good price I bit the bullet and bought off the original owner who bought it new back in 1990...
I’m currently in the process of rebuilding a nice 21 year old Canadian beauty and I’m after some advice on what would be a suitable period seat post for her. The current post is a period XT item but is a little too short.
The bar and stem are currently Syncros items and look the...
Time to share a little something I picked up cheaply this time last year.
Cressy is a small town in northern Tasmania and this racing bike was made by a since long gone shop called Whatley's cycles. From what I can tell it was fairly typical of a local (Australian) road racing bike of the...
Hat's off to those who organised the Global Ride it was a lot of fun riding around in the dark chasing native animals in the bush and generally making a fool of ones self.
Having had a look through all the great photos from around the world I was wondering if there were plans for other such...
The bike I've ridden the most over the last 5 years is my 2005 Turner Flux so its probably time that I showed it here.
I ordered a Flux when they first appear in late 2004 and my frame was in the second batch of frame produced and made it to me in January 2005.
I built it up using the then...
