When it rains it pours.. These trickled in the last couple of weeks. There's a 48T, 47T and a 46T and three 32T rings. Only one ring is marked SR and the others are un marked, in various states of finish and will need some deburring and such.

The Crank arms have some ham-fisted marks, but will polish up fine.


And here's the rest of the haul from earlier this year. The well polished Apex has a drive side crack and the Customs have well worn chainrings. I'm not exactly sure what bikes these are going on, but I'm psyched to have new chain rings to start with.

Not in my actual possession yet, but at my nephew's in London. I've purchased two new pairs of the Specialized Touring Pedals in the past three years or so. Both originated in the UK.

Been to the Vintage Bike Fair in Geel, Belgium and scored some real nice stuff.



And this one was not on the list but already for years on my mind.



Doesn't ring a bell I guess ..

Over the weekend Thomas and I received a really neat Zeus document from the original owner of the Zeus that he brought home from Cino. It was sent in a small rectangular box that wouldn't fit in the mailbox. Unfortunately, Roxi was outside when the postman dropped it over the gate.

I'm a bit reluctant to post this..

Roxi is obviously not interested. It's like you just profiled the poor innocent dog.
Being at the scene doesn't make you guilty.

Someone is spending to much time on the internet....

And there's more in transit..

​​​​​​I got the drive side Apex crank from an Ebay seller who had "more than 10" available.

Nice to know René Herse isn't the only parts manufacturer who found the MAFAC Racer geometry the sine qua non of brake geometry.

I think the calipers are much heavier than alloy though. I am going to check to see if they are steel.

Scored a super rad Cannondale top bag for my restomod project. Came NIB with a man date of 11/82. Really hoping that FEDEX gets their heads out of their butts and finally drop off my 105 drive train for the ST600 today.

Fiona II Faggin has arrived...thinking 1981-82. Paint is lightly patina-ed, but the fork is meh in places




Typical Faggin crown and lugs...

The cool pantoed head tube...

Redrilled for recessed...

Mashed adjusters...better them than the frame.

Needs a bit of aligning...
