Thanks for the photo sir!

Speaking of old stuff, altough it's not 'vintage' yet (circa early 90s) I found these TT stuff:

1. Profile by Design Aerobar
2. Profile by Design Clip-on Aerobar
3. Profile by Design Shifter Clamps
4. Profile by Design Armrests
5. Profile by Design Bottle Cage holders for the rear of the seat
7. Unidisc Wheel Covers


It's nice to see these items are Made in USA. You don't see that often anymore. Some of the stuff even come in sizes for MTB (have you seen a TT MTB?!) Everything is in pristine condition. However, the Unidisc's fabric has deteriorated and has stuck together. But, with a bit of searching someone should be able to find a replacement fabric for them, since the attachments and clamps are in brand new condition.

Ray, the single pivots in your Colnago low-pro TT bike are early 90s late 80's Campy Chorus. Among your bikes that is the one I admire - its similar (altho bigger) to the one Jelle Nijdam used in the 1987 TdF prologue which he won.

The Bottecchia of Mr. Eric D looks well preserved but is a little mix-match on the parts (Rally RD is not racing pedigree and its heavy made of steel parts). Overall - very nice.

hd,

the vintage bike riders at its infancy here hd..here mix match is ok...at this time. also some parts if we never see it before looks Beautiful so its on the bikes. If ever the crowd becomes big i expect people get more knowledgeable and correctly put parts together. eric duldulao has a cd of all the vintage campy parts so he knows what part belongs to what year. i just sold him my campy delta caliper in mint condition..i expect he will put that series on a road bike soon. he also owns a Colnago Titanio bi tubo. Shocked i wonder when he will sell that bike to me...

for those who inquire about the colnago funny bike...sorry it is no longer for sale... Smiley

so im keeping two of four collectibles.sold to me by a collector some years ago. the bottechia equipe and colnago masterlight funny bike ......dante valdez was the one who provided me with the 650c Conti sprinter otherwise this bike has no front rubber.. the campy disc came originally with this bike i leraned later it came from architect ricky ledesma (still works ok). funny bike originally had the campy deltas...but i had the brand new deltas removed and sold the deltas to eric duldulao... Grin

Sir Ray,

I was able to find the same colnago frame you have there only in red white color. I ask the owner if he's selling it but he refuse Undecided We have difficulty in communication coz he speak very little english Wink I saw some vintage track frames also. So many stuffs! dont know if it is for sale! He's selling me a T-mobile Giant full carbon for 3K riyals (P36,000) with Ritchey carbon seatpost. Do you think it's a good buy? Anyway, yhe jersey design is almost finish

eric duldulao has a cd of all the vintage campy parts so he knows what part belongs to what year.

Got it Ray. I also have complete electronic copies (in portable document format) of all Campy catalogues (up to 2008) including the very first one that was printed (fully illustrated and no photos on that one!). I also have the actual printed catalogues from 2001 to 2007 on top of the electronic copies. Just holler if you need any info to look up... Grin

- Mavic (70’s)
- Shimano Dura Ace (first catalogue)
- Early Shimano 105 (users manual)
- Gitane bikes
- Bottechia (70s)
- Mafac
- Nervex

As well as hundreds of historical photo references for:

Colnago
Atala
Eisentraut
Teledyne
Masi
Maserati (yes they also mad touring bikes)
Ciocc
Merckx & Kessels
Rossin

Nagasawa
Filotex
Trek

For those who need electronic copies of actual pic references and vector images of Decals, I have mostly:

Nervex (lugs; early and late types)
Eddy Merckx (including the early decal style)
Guerciotti (frames)
Gitane (frames)
Omas (parts usually BBs)
Fiorelli (frames)
