Many of you have seen this bike before...the Centurion Turbo Time Trial from German Centurion. I would be amiss if I did not include it on this thread though. It also happens to be the bike that got me into lo pros about seven years ago. It was my first holy grail bike and I got it after six years and it is all built up. This one is not mine however. I also have an extra frame that I plan to build. A lot of people love and admire this bike here at Bike Forums and I have seen those occasional few who hate it. I think it is heart stopping gorgeous.

Neither one is vintage, but both are very cool.
Both made my Don Walker. I asked him why he made a reproduction eastern block TT bike. He replied "Because it is. SO. F-ING. COOL."

The result was revolutionary, and the bike was good, but the molds they used for creating the frame had to be replaced more often than they thought, so the whole thing ended up as a big disaster. Both the stem length and the handlebar width were adjustable.
It holds the #1 entry on my list of "bikes I will never forgive myself for not getting them when the opportunity was there".
Here's another pic of it taken at Cicli Berlinetta, this time with the girl, who has had her 15 minutes of fame on these pages already...



... and a track tandem, because why not... and for those, who find the ~50 finished frames of the road version too mainstream.

Shame for real on them.
I tend to think, that they are a cycling team, and not a bike maker, but I might be wrong. This bike was shared from the same person as above, but tagged as Denti:



The guy also posted a modern unlabelled Alan, which was later also labelled as Migliorelli.

I would say, whatever Migliorelli means, the bike is nice, but I think,it reminds me to the Fanciulli labelled Olmo siblings:

After spending months to watch Rossin pictures to find a matching one to mine, I must say, this is a really impressive picture and model I have never seen..
The "normal" lugged carbon Advance looks like a joke compared to this, while staying on the ground with both feet, this one, besides being cool, looks like if Rossin had realeased the Cinelli Laser Mia way before Cinelli did.

That's a cool collection. I really like Sannino, and can imagine how rare they might be in the US, as they not a common thing over here either.
While that's the highlight of the bunch for me, still my heart beats for the Bianchi, especially it's 58... made for me.

A nice looking Vetta frame for sale in Italy. Besides the colorful paintjob, the heart-shaped braze-ons where the shift cables exit the DT are cute little details.

Are the spokes red white green? I'm still mourning the place of my green in the cellar although that was by far not as nice.

@Lattz Yes. I had my LBS install Italian flag colored spokes into the rear wheel build. It came out better than what I had in mind.

I originally got the frameset back in November 2019 from Denver, Colorado. This is the way it arrived as a single speed/fixie.

With great hope that someone more knowledgeable corrects me I make an uneducated guess and say its a Peugeot with Reynolds 753 although Pug TTs I've seen with such seat tubes had over DT shifters, external RB cables and had no fillet brazed tubes but the sharp internal - prefab - brazed ones. Other guess would have been MBK but those usually had dropped seat stays. Out with those counter opinions!!!

A nice one anyway, and those brakes are not really common although like CLB usually they are not expensive when popping up.
