Don't have pictures, but the other day I noticed both a nice Rivendell and a beautiful looking Gazelle at my BART stop, just parked at the bike racks. There's a nice looking older Nishiki too, though I don't know model info on any of them.

No pics for me either, but late Saturday afternoon as our band was playing a public outdoor concert in Gardner, MA someone rode into the audience are on a white w/blue Raleigh Gran Sport. I spoke to her during the break and she said it was a '75. Still had the Stronglight crank, GB stem, Weinmann centerpulls, but newer derailleurs.

Saw this in town a while ago. It does deserve better cable work and I suppose mudguard adjustment, but it's especially interesting to me, as I'm cleaning up my own DBS Internazionale these days.

I wish this thread were a sticky.

These bikes are total opposites and I think display the role of the owner/builder. One is a fairly ho-hum bike that was done beautifully (some will no doubt disagree about the rack paint, but I like it). The other was a special bike and has become ho-hum.

Spotted this a few days ago - maybe nothing that special, but I thought it was a nice build that deserved recognition.









On the flip side - I walked by this today, and threw up a little in my mouth.

Track bikes aren't my thing, but if I wanted one, this would make my list. Fork isn't original.

One of the Raliegh Technium 531s I didn't think existed

This one blows my mind. A Raleigh Sprite that looks like it was built yesterday. I've seen this thing all around town and it looks even better than the pictures. I don't get how its stayed so nice.

Another nice Raleigh. Patina'd Raleigh.



Kind of a clone of the Fuji. I've been noticing these REI bikes lately because some of them were really nicely equipped. To say I'd love to find one at a garage sale for cheap with the tri-color STI would not be exaggerating.

Fixied but pretty to me nevertheless




Not in the wild technically but this Paramount makes me yearn everytime I go to my LBS. The restoration job from Waterford's pretty spectacular. So shiny. Hard to do justice to the finish.

This one's pretty interesting. Amateur team bike possibly by Puch converted to townie of sorts.




Nice to see a Dura-Ace derailleur with some use on it!
Remnants of what looks like a 531special decal

I'm not posting the kickstand.

Friend of mine brought this for me to see the other night. I didn't know about them. Campy wine-opener.

Kind of fugly decals and stem on the bike but for some reason the green color, brooks, and horizontal top-tube called out to me.

Calls out to me as well.

I'd love to have a Hampsten.

I've been seeing some crazy stuff out lately, but haven't been able to photo it. I'll either be with people, won't have my phone, or be in a rush. I missed photoing a Merckx and BEAUTIFUL Bob Jackson last week.

This might be a bit less beautiful, but I really like what I saw, especially the saddle. Any guesses to marquee?

I think that the Witcomb is a single speed. The rear wheel is way off center.
