Wheels!

Found these in a closet of a house that I was inspecting. I had previously bought an awesome ‘99 Specialized A1 from the owner. These wheels were the start of a custom build in ‘94.

Learned I will have to cancel my Koga-Miyata RoadAce project.

The entire rear triangle of that bike is bent, probably because of a botched angle grinder job and a suspected rear-end collision.
Only the drive side tube still looks straight.

Light at the end of the tunnel...



Has the appropriate layer of protective dust!
As an exterminator I find myself in a lot of interesting places. As I rounded a corner in an cellar, in a very old home, I found this!
It is coming home with me today!

I was asking the seller questions about this
It sold just as I was reaching my decision to go for it.
Probably just as well. Need to unload a few.

Picked up a Motobécane Le Champion today. I think it's a '79 with the bottle bosses and campy drops front and rear. Here's the craigs ad pic:



Too tall for me, so I'll be parting out... I was looking forward to putting the brooks pro on my miyata, but the saddle is torn. If the crankset cleans up, I might mount it on my Grand Record. Beautiful Ultegra/Mavic wheelset, too...

I went for a ride today on my 1975 Bob Jackson. Sadly, I have no pics.

It was a beautiful, sunny day. The sky was blue. It was about 70 degrees. Winds were out of the west at 10-15 mph, but mostly just a cross wind to keep me cool while riding. The Pacific Ocean waves are crashing about 100 yards to the west. Of course, the people are the best - everyone was having fun with not a sour face to be found.

Manhattan Beach is having an AVP volleyball tournament - the Manhattan Open. The bike path was closed at the MB Pier, so I just turned around and rode to the end in the other direction. Beach volleyball is a big deal around here.

Some day I will stop and get some pictures. I will eventually move away from here. It will be really sad to find I have no pictures of my most favorite-est bike ride in all the world.

6.5 mile Post Office run on the '78 Peugeot PR10. The rear derailleur has been acting up, chain dragging between large rear gear and jockey wheel. I checked the derailleur mounting bolt, and it was a little loose at the dropout. I tried to reposition the Simplex a little, snuggled it up, and it seems better, still not quiet, but less jockey wheel drag. Always something. I enjoyed the ride though. It was better than the other day, before I checked it.

Putting the build together slowly but surely. The plan, after work, is to continue tuning a rear wheel. Then it’s off to assembling the stem/bars/levers, replacing some brake pads, and hopefully drilling a front bag support to take a decaluer...
