It was built by Vanni Losa, I believe in 1986 (the BB is stamped 26 9 86 though there is also a 5 in a circle so '85 is a possiblity) and I assume that it's SL tubing. I purchased it on ebay from a seller in Switzerland who told me that Schneider is a shop there so that explains the downtube label.

Difficult to capture all 3 colors in one photo on this one.

Yellow on top of the top tube.
Black on the underside of down tube and chain stays.
Red for the rest.

Rock Lobster team colors in the mid eighties.

I love the KOM, hah. Someone had a decent price on the PDG-90 and I just had to pick up it's cousin. It's currently in the process of getting tuned up and hopefully the original XC Pro drivetrain replaced (someone put XT on it, according to the owner he got it from a serious mountain biker, and some of the part choices like the bar-ends bear this out).

Nice^^^

Doesn't anyone have a Mondia? While they probably weren't the first, they were famous for doing multi color fades long, long before the fad took off in the 80s.

Sold this to make space for more practical bikes. If I ever have more space I'll find a slightly larger one.

Giordana XL Super - Didn't want to mess with the magic of the other one so I got this to build up as a much lighter ride. Just for the heck of it.

And the ones I've moved on to other riders.


Club Fuji

Fuji S12-s - My first 650b conversion.

Centurion Ironman - Beautiful bike that I just wasn't riding for whatever reason....

Centurion Ironman - Sold when I got the other one.

Bridgestone Mile 112 - This thing would fly but sold it to make room.

Schwinn Prologue - A $50 find I loved for years but sold it eventually.

Fuji Team - I totally loved how this looked but passed it on after fixing it up to make room in the bike cave.

Raleigh Team USA - One day I'll have another just for the cool patriotic paint scheme.

@jamesdak I had the same white and pink Giordana frame. Cromor. It was my work bike when I was a messenger and was a total Franken-build. In hindsight, it was way too nice for a work bike. I miss it

jamesdak that is one serious bike collection, holy cow! Where do you store them all? You should write a blog about each one, the history, specifications and how each rides. Maybe their is already a guide out there on all the classic bikes ever made?

I forgot about the Greg Lemond bikes and funny enough, I just saw an article about him making new bikes.

Well, for the most part they all live in the bike cave which in now busting at it's seams. A few of the wet weather/winter bikes live in the garage though. If you search for posts started by me you'll find threads started covering most of them with detailed pics.

Some have cool histories and even just the search to find out about them is fun and interesting. Like the "custom Lemond". I was able to trace back the few owners of it all the way through to the original Pro rider (Team Saturn) that got it from Greg. The Evans bike belonged to Bob Fourney, four time winner of The RAAM. This bike was built for one of the Paris Brevets. I'd love to consolidate all the info but I'm so "ADHD" after the last bike wreck induced head injury that it's hard to stay focused to write or do anything.

Anyway, here's where they mostly live and were I pull one out of each day to ride.



All bike ready to go save the Evans and one Y-Foil that I'm working on.

Mine was my first Italian and the "gateway drug" into my Giordana addiction.
