Subject: my intro to [CR], decals, 50th group


Hello CR: Time to introduce myself to list. David Perry here. Former Nor. Calif. road racer 1971-78, US team twice (on Eisentrauts), now Master in NYC, owner of Bike Works (small shop), author Bike Cult (big book) and Bicycle Blueprint for NYC. Loves the classics, but prefers using ergo to older (ogre) brake levers and downtube shifters. Growing website has pictures of favorites, bikes and parts for sale, a small chainring collection, our Barelli quadruple competition rollers with dial face... http://www.bikecult.com

RE: decals: Have a Schwinn Superior c.1940 track frame with silver repaint and a downtube decal c.1965 Schwinn SuperSport. Got it in lot of vintage bikes from Hill Cycle Shop, Phila. Also, recently saw fat-tube Huffy with Cannondale decals. Dude bought it for $150.

Is it OK that I put pictures of decals on my site? Can I change them? http://www.bikecult.com/works/archive.html

Question about Campagnolo 50th Anniversary group: The group serial number is located inside the right crank arm, but is the number placed on any other components in the group? Trying to identify a c.84 white Colnago found in NYC police auction several years ago with serial number on crank hammered and defaced.

after the snow, sunny still chilly
