Replaced the Tevano cranks with ZEUS competiton, the Hurret FD was replaced by Zeus criterium to reduce the mix of parts of the first build. Also upgraded the brakes from Weinmann 500 to 605's.
Hope you like the new shots...
The previous owner bought the bike in Belgium at "Carlos" - a shop from an ex-professinal racer in 1975. It was used for some races before that and built around 69/70. Don't know the tubing nor the lugs - wich have a quite unique cut out. If you recognize them, please help! I bought the frame and added the "Sprinter" decals - I guess they were made for 'no-name' bikes I've never seen another Sprinter bike for sure. Comlete non-campy european set up. I'm really happy with the result - it's such a nice ride!

Dear Mtbfixed

thank you for your kind words!


Very fascinating bike you got there.



Wow, what a beautiful bike,

Wow, what a beautiful bike, again moik! Well balancd build. Never seen those Weinmann levers or the 3t saddle and that crankset, Tevano? Looks very similar to you know what ;) Very cool stuff

Thank you Smiley

You're so right about the crankset... ;) Tevano was Italian - Weinmann was from Switzerland. So sometimes you find these parts on older bikes from here. The cable clamp of the Weinmann brakes are on the oposite side what is quite special. After all the bike is a fast, smooth ride - what I didn't expected the time I was building it up.

Smiley: new info

about Tevano. They're not Italian but French - a sup-company of TA Sp?cialites I found out today.

Best, moik
