I mostly lurk on this list since I am a newbie to vintage world. I didn't get back into cycling until 1995 and did some racing before work & family killed available training time. But I still manage to ride on some training rides with local racers.
I figured I would jump in on this list since I just fulfilled one of my dream bikes. Like some others, my list is due to the association with the pro ranks in the vintage era. A few others are the handiwork of current list members who still carry the torch of craftsmanship IMHO. So here goes:
Currently own: 1980's Falcon, I think it is a San Remo and set up as a fixed. 2001 Richard Sachs 25th Anniversary Replica 1997 Richard Sachs cyclocross bike (built for Adam Myerson) 1983 Gios Torino Professional (just won on Ebay yesterday). My favorite race is Paris Roubaix and no other rider exemplifies this race than Roger De Vlaeminck and the Brooklyn Chewing Gum team. Plus, I am a NYer and have always liked the Brooklyn jersey. Now I have a bike to match.
Wish List: Eddy Merckx in 7-11 colors JP Weigle Richard Moon Colnago Super Hetchins
I wish I could have made the last Cirque and will try next year. It sounded like it was great fun and there was plenty of eye candy.
