Peugeot PVN-10 650b conversion
Sram Rival 2x10 brifters combined with GX mountain derailleur.
Another equally impressive functional update from 1980s tech are modern led lights and dynohubs (B+m & SP in my case).

I've posted this before - most recently in the brifters forums but there seems to be no magenta bikes or anything with Sensah shifters so here's a Miami Vice Centurion. Now sporting 2x9spd with original derailleurs and open pro/ultegra wheels.

I got your twin:

It still has its original wheels and original dork disk, but now with a 7 sp freewheel and shifted with Sora ST3300 brifters.

Max Rockatansky"s bike. The last year of the Centurion Turbos. Proud to say that almost none of the components match. Definitely not a groupset. F Big Bicycle and their constant planned obsolescence.

Photo was taken after maiden shake-down ride and the seatpost (and apparently saddle angle) slipped and need to be fixed.

OK well I will join the repetition and the great set of bikes in this thread.

have noticed in the last couple of weeks that the other thread doesn't have much activity.

I tried really hard to stick with friction shifting but after the first exposure to the Pinarello with DA DT index, I was convinced to seriously consider it.
Since I broke out of the friction only limitation, the next step was to get the STI controls for the same. I could not stomach the $200+ associated with 8v DA STI. Braking the group to include a lower set was out of the question.

The curiosity bug hit with the interest in SRAM and of course the very old time, for me, Campagnolo Ergo.
Since the Pinarello is Italian, duh, It must have Campagnolo. A set of 1st gen Ergos showed up on somewhere for under $100. I jumped. Then there was the only other item needed, the rear derailleur. Found a 9v for an acceptable price for the experiment. As you know, shifting didn't work so the idea was to find a 10v Ergo set. Different layer in the pricing category! Actually acquired 2 sets, both needing repair and then the Wheels MFG spacers showed up for the DA cassette.
@squirtdad offered up his slightly oversized De Rosa on the forum. Nabbed that one! Thank you sir! Since a De Rosa was on the bucket list, there was no way this was going to be anything but Campagnolo. Some parts were very low priced, others too much but my desire was greater and I gave in when the wheel set showed up with 10v cassette for under $150 - Ambrosio Nemisis and Record hubs. That set the direction.

@himespau - Nope. Brooks Swallow and not Brooke Swallow!
Still a good design from 1937. I now have three. I was a Brooks Professional kinda guy from my saddle back in 1972, still use it. The Swallow is faster to fit and still looks modern.

No rubbing experience for me.

The Gyes I have is a shameless rip-off of the Swallow. I think if I'd bought one without the cut-out (or paid for a real-deal Swallow), I would have liked it a lot. Bought it back when I was first starting out and trying to do things cheaply. Saddles seem to be kind of like tools, you can by an expensive one once, or cheap ones often.

Gotta pick your quality based on usage and ROI if it breaks later. There is a place for some HB tools like impact sockets!

Nice build. The fork on this is very attractive, in the way it curves and tapers(imo, and at the risk of sounding creepy).

Very nice bike, SJX426.

Thanks @SJX426 , I have posted several pics in that thread. But between me and you, I couldn't remember! So I just checked and yes they are there.

Trying to decide between the following candidates for my next STI type build: 98' Aluminum GT Attack, '81 LeTour Frame (new old stock) and '85 Voyageur.(new old stock)

for a $500 groupset budget (I have wheels, tires, bars, etc), which would you build and what would you build it with?

'98 GT attack aluminum

'81 LeTour New Old Stock Frame, with a mismatched chrome fork

'85 New Old stock voyageur

I would go with the Voyageur, but only because I have an '88 Voyageur that's going to be my next build (I have a go-fast road bike from the '80's set up with 10 speed Campagnolo now, but I don't have a touring/commuting/gravel-ish bike running). Depends on what you want to do with it and what parts you have.
