I just saw this topic not too long ago. I bought a pair of Modolo #919 on E BAY in gum flavor for my SR levers. Nice fit and until you get up close, th ey look just like Campy. Here's a link:

Got a Univega Super Special frameset today. Recall earlier discussion on h igh-end Univegas, did they have Camp. equipment, etc.

This frame has Campagnolo dropouts and fork ends, Champion tubing and a Dur a Ace EX sticker on it. Colour is pinkish red with silver lettering, long point lugs with diamond cutouts, but also heart cut-outs in fork tangs.

Neat little frame, thin lugs, not sure if production or better. Anyone kno w more about the Super Special? Love the name.

Included were wheels that may have first generation Dura Ace cassette hubs, 6 speed with little cog as the screwed-on retaining piece. I'd never seen these before.

I get a little uncomfortable with the stereotypes and the judgments. Maybe the lesson here should be tolerance.

As someone asked me about shoes for old-fashioned clip pedals, here is what I found. Tha guy I know, Enzo Guidi, from Calci, still has about 30 assorted pairs of about twenty years ago. Missing are the most popular sizes: like 41-42 (continental measures). He is willing to sell the whole bunch and clear the shelf.

Requests?

I know full well hardly anybody will be interested in this; anyhow, let me report about this search.

Colnago Nuovo Mexico '87, full Cinquantenario Gruppo, 54.5x54.5, 12 cm stem. Hardly used at all. One owner: Giampiero Giannetti, Pisa. Asking 1500 euro.

Masi, full Cinquantenario Gruppo, 54x54. Hardly ever used, too. One owner: Guido Pratesi, Pistoia. Asking 1700 euro.

Bianchi, full Cinquantenario Gruppo. Again hardly ever used (evidently people regard them as relics!). The owner is Ilio Tonelli, Lucca (a well known collector of antique bikes and parts of, ever present at the Eroica Rides). I havn't had the chance to talk to him recently, so I don't know what he is asking these days.

Since I would not like to play the interested middle man, if someone is seriously interested I'll hand him out the owners' telephone numbers.

Update:

This ride is planned for tomorrow, Saturday, 22 October has been postponed a week - to Saturday 29 October because of the dismal weather forecast. (Temps in the 50's and rain does not seem likely to provide an enjoyable ride - except to the real hard core types)

The 3rd annual DC area Autumnal Vintage bike ride is now scheduled for Saturday 29 October.

Per Peter Kohler's suggestion, the theme is British lightweights. (Hope to have my Gillott all spiffed up.)

If you do not want to do British, most anything with 1, 2, or 3 wheels made out of steel will be acceptable....

I have scouted out a circa 30 mile route from here (Kensington, MD) out

to the west that (while not flat) is certainly quite doable on a fixed. (I rode it last week on my 47/18 fixed gear without difficulty.) Non-riders, spouses, etc welcome, of course. (My spousal unit will not be riding)

We will assemble circa 10 am with an aim to begin riding at about 10:30. Food, beverages served afterwards.

Please let me know if you plan to attend so I can be sure to have sufficient food, etc available. At a minimun, we will serve Pizza, homemade Chili, Brats, and Beer and soda. Food and/or beverage donations most welcome.

I will send directions when you let me know you plan to attend. But we are located just off the beltway north of DC, the Connecticut Avennue exit off I-495 (aka the Beltway).

Group;

In 1977 I purchased in France a Raleigh Team Record frame. Reynolds 531 with half chromed forks. Painted Raleigh red, black, yellow team colors. Only braze on was a cable stop for the derailleur. Raleigh on the seat tube. Record on the down tube and Team Record on the top tube. No TI stickers. Still have the frame. I never sell anything.

I have never seen another like it. Anyone know anything about Raleigh Team bikes? Is this the long lost TdF winner? : )

Second! The auction of Galmozzi frame (also bike?) that our member won, t h e challenger who run up the bids 700.00 to 0ver 1200.00 was one of the power Japanese buyer!

I haven't followed this thread from the start so I don't know who made the statement about enjoying the new home however if that person would have sai d “I hope they/it enjoys its new home in Switzerland or England” the ov erly politically correct probably would not have taken offense. It is kind of funny, but self serving at the same time, how these folks make and justi fy the judgments that they come up with. Do they take life so serious that their funny bone cannot be tickled. I think so, but then that is just my op inion. Come on people, lighten up.

Yesterday I shipped a Campagnolo bottom bracket to Sweden and I hope it enj oys its new home there. If anyone has a problem with this statement please e-mail me off list.

Howdy folks.

I need a pair of straight lever Campy skewers, suitable for a semi-authentic 1975 build. I have a front that is pretty crusty (missing quite a bit of chrome), but I could use it. I think a 126mm rear would be best (was that standard for a high end 1975 bike?), but I am not actually certain. What have you got?

Thanks,

Howdy folks.

I am scraping together the parts to build up my Silk Hope and need a BB. I have an Italian threaded Nuovo-Record that I am pretty sure is in good useable condition. I would like to trade it for an English threaded one. I think mine is all pre-CPSC (but I am not sure; how can I tell?) and that is what I need in trade. Any takers?

Thanks :^)

Howdy folks.

I need to replace the gooey and don't fit very well Dia-Compe hoods that are on some Nuovo-Record brake levers that I have. What is the best currently available option for a rider? I really don't want to pay anything near what NOS Campy hoods seem to sell for. Something brownish/gummish would be best I think, black probably okay. FWIW the bike is from 1975.

You could always have the re-chromed.

I think I have a source for levers as spare parts of complete screwers.
