    Help ID this frame (for Peugeot cognoscenti... I think!)

    Re: Re: Merci heymarge! I'll check some old brochures but from what I've seen already it sounds pretty plausible.

    Help ID this frame (for Peugeot cognoscenti... I think!)

    Re: Thanks both. I've been looking at more 1980s Peugeot and now also Motobecane catalogues but can't quite find a match. The '84 Peugeot PH10L comes close, for example in terms of the internal rear brake cable routing and gear cable braze-on on the chain stay. However, the joint between the...

    Help ID this frame (for Peugeot cognoscenti... I think!)

    About 12 years ago I bought a flat handlebar fixie on eBay. It had been resprayed, stripped of all its decals etc. and had lots of probably unoriginal components, except perhaps for the front rim (Mavic CXP 33). The seller wasn't able to tell what manufacturer or frame it was. I got it because...

    Replace crankset or crank arms?

    Re: Thanks Big Cheese :D Yes, entirely possible. There's one guy working there who is really into old bikes, which is why I've used them a few times in the past, but the one I talked to today is probably more of a modern Trek bicycle salesman... I might get that chainset but am actually also...

    Replace crankset or crank arms?

    I was just about to head out on my 1986/1987 (?) Gijs van Tuyl Racing Feather (see first pic below) when the left pedal (BLB Classic City Sealed) came off. On inspection it had quite a bit of thread from inside the crank arm wrapped around it... I am not sure how this has happened, but I suspect...

    Tools for crank and bottom bracket removal

    Tx all -- very helpful :) There's a bolt inside; just haven't bothered removing the dust cap yet :) Thanks, hadn't realised that. Explains the bottom Campy tool in Nob's message I guess. I came across this tool http://www.probikekit.co.uk/bicycle-too ... tAodCAkAXw in a Bikemanforu vid...

    Tools for crank and bottom bracket removal

    Hi all I've just got a 1987-ish Gijs van Tuyl Racing Feather. I'm very keen to start riding it, but want to treat it to some proper rust proofing first... I've never removed a crank or bottom bracket before, and am trying to get my head around what's involved. I'd just like to check that the...

    Peugeot Chorus 753 1989 ?

    Looks very nice -- blue is such a good colour for French bikes :) Having just come back from a trip to London I'm also happy to see a Peugeot that is not fixiefied!

    Ha, OK, thanks Paul!

    Help identify this Pina?

    Thanks Timelab. Good to know I didn't fall into the trap of paying over the odds for this one. Just seen parts 1 and 2 of your restoration vid as well -- very nice job you did, both on the bike and on the video!

    Help identify this Pina?

    Tx guys, very helpful! The vendor wants around £450 for it, which strikes me as a bit steep for an Asolo that is OK but clearly not excellent...

    Help identify this Pina?

    The owner of the Pinarello has now kindly sent me some more photos to help answer the question: Montello, yay or nay? It seems to me that the answer has to be nay... We get the GPT logos on the seat stays, but not on top of the BB. Also, the bridge between the chain stays is...

    Thanks for the ID lewisfoto :) Have just found out that the tubing is Aelle, which AFAIK is towards (at?) the lower end of the Columbus hierarchy at the time, so probably strong but not very light.

    Is the end of summer always such a good hunting season? Just came across a third possible bike, in addition to the Pina (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=270202) and the Van Tuyl (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=270273). Also very large, this is a (what looks like 1980s) Reus, apparently with Campagnolo gruppo...

    Value of Gijs van Tuyl mystery bike...

    Update: the seller did indeed use the term "Koga Miyata" to get more people to view the advert. Quite possibly Italian made then.

    Value of Gijs van Tuyl mystery bike...

    ... Well, I *think* this is a Racing Feather, late 80s, but not completely sure... As far as I know Van Tuyl mainly bought his stuff from elsewhere (especially Andrea Pesenti) then sold it under his name. The seller describes it as having Columbus SLX tubing, which is obviously nice. In...

    Help identify this Pina?

    Thanks. Very useful all this! (And nice bike(s) DA-EVO! 8)) I've been a good student and done my homework... :) Now in order to decide whether it really is a Montello I'm planning to ask for photos of: 1. the head tube, head-on (decal may help identify the year) 2. the section of the down...

    Help identify this Pina?

    The seller now tells me the sticker does indeed say Columbus SLX. Possibly good news, but I've noticed that the fork doesn't have the GPT logo, whereas this one clearly does:

    Help identify this Pina?

    Tx very much!! Gives me quite a lot to go on. I haven't actually seen the bike in the, erm, steel yet, so until I do (at the end of this week or next week perhaps, if it's worth it...) I'll have to rely on the seller to give me more information. Gruppo is def DuraAce, possibly complete -- see...

    Thanks, well spotted. I've asked the seller to have a look at this...
