I donít have a pic of me and my bike yet, but my profile is a pic of the monstrosity of a project I just bought! With zero experience. Woo! Iíll add a photo of me, likely crying with a bottle of champagne, attempting to understand how to fix something on it, when I can post pics. 😂

6 yrs ago at age 55. After a 25 yr hiatus I dusted off my 83 Trek 760 that was hanging in the garage. I re-greased most everything and re-joined my biking buddies from the 80ís who started riding again a couple of years earlier.

My pictures and posts are out of order. The bottom picture shows my De Rosa SLX as purchased. The top picture shows the current status.

I added a Campy aero seatpost, Brooks Swallow saddle and Campy C Record Syncro downtube shifters (8 Sp), C Record brake levers, Conti Grand Prix Classic 700c x 25 tires. The Nuevo Record pedals are from my 70’s Lygie Pro (my 1st Italian Bike), the Silca frame pump was used on my 83 Trek 760. I added a copper bell.....it’s the 1st bell I’ve ever had on any bike! I wanted a more vintage look. I just got some Record C aero pedals with XL clips off eBay.


I picked up the De Rosa SLX in the front off Craigslist last year for my 60th birthday. The De Rosa Alumino in the back I bought a few years ago. The DE Rosa SLX was sold as shown with chain, cables and bar tape missing. The bike is 99% completed now.

Dayton Roadmaster c1955. UK London, Park Royal.

I posted me with my Freddie Grubb Meteor (1955), (London Maker) a little earlier in this Blog but here is my Dayton Roadmaster (circa1955) (also a London UK maker) that is currently undergoing restoration by myself.

They called it an 'Amalgam' frame which was lugless and tubes were electrically butt welded together, makes for a very light frame which had some success in UK racing in the 1950's.

After over a decade (quite a bit over...) I have my Kona Jake the Snake back together.

Jake responded well to the brifter flush... I think. I have my bike back together and I'll probably get a ride in tomorrow to fine tune everything.

First the Meteor, then this one. You have some great bikes that we don't often get to see on this side of the pond!
Looks like the precursor to today's light weight TIG welded steel frames.

These are at least 5 of the 8 road bikes. '86 Paramount in Emerald Green is the first of the collection and the only one I'm the original owner of. The others were all built from a collection of parts obtained from Ebay and other retail sources and are true Frankenbikes.

A few shots from our rides around Springfield and Dayton Ohio this past week. They have a superb pathway system around there.
