Risikhi (sumo wrestler) Tochinoshin [Georgian (the country) born Levan Gorgadze]



Interesting career, capped by winning the top basho in January 2018. He's 6' 3.5" and normally competes around ~400#. His killer technique is a left outside, right inside grasp of his opponent's mawashi, lifting and carrying them off the dohyō.

Pope John Paul II, who was apparently into cycling, with a gifted Colnago made just for him.




The story is he returned this to Colnago and requested (and got) a bike with upright bars. ITALIAN CYCLING JOURNAL: Colnago for Pope John Paul II

Paul Rudd with a Vitus. Technically, he’s not on it and an internet search did not provide the back story as to whether or not it’s his.

It was a fairly generic Gary Fisher with all black components. IIRC sales were hampered by supply issues.
When Corte Madera Cyclery was about to go out of business, Sammy Hagar stepped in and bought them They operated very well for many many years afterwards. I think they finally closed, not sure.

from SFgate: " In 1986, he bought Corte Madera Cyclery, later capitalizing on the mountain bike craze by building custom bikes, including the Red Rocker, Hagar's own model. A year later, he opened Sausalito Cyclery, pulling in $4 million in annual sales.He eventually left the bike business and forayed into fashion. "

Sausalito Cyclery is very famous among the coGnescenti

I reckon you're right with Bianchi. Possibly something similar to this: https://premium-cycling.com/product/...d-55-5cm-1970/

Can't identify the bike, but it might be a Raleigh.
