Subject: [CR] wanted: info/images of light bikes

If you haven't already seen the weight weenie/drillium gallery it's here: http://www.43bikes.com/v/drillium/

Next up is the webpage, which I'm hoping will have an interesting array of light bikes. Here are some that I would love to have more images of:

-10.5lb Panasonic track bike, featured at several shows and Bicycling magazine (7/75). I only have a side-shot photo.

-The Teledyne in southern Cal, described in this CR post: <http:// search.bikelist.org/getmsg.asp?Filename=classicrendezvous. 10405.0264.eml>

-The sub-15lb Rene Herse in 1973 'Le Cycle'

-Any of Peter Johnson's race bikes in the 1970s

-2 Colnago show bikes c. 1976 - a 14.1lb road and 9.6lb track

-the Raleigh 753 'Time Trial Special'

-Any light/modified bikes from the CR community and beyond

-Any antique super-light bikes - here's one just for fun:
