Pretty sure it's a 1973 frame, based on what remains of the plastic headbadge.

Now with (mostly) Campy NR. Currently has V-O Porter bars, but still need to twine and shellac em. Probably will sell soon to make room for a retro Soma Grand Randonneur cruiser build.

Feelin it

cool bike dude

Thanks dude

You have cool bikes too. 916 reppasent, keep sactown janky, etc.


those cranks and chainring look very nice.

i'm due for another shellacking myself.

Cicada, what bike of yours

needs shellacking? I've always enjoyed your Gita and Follis, and your Mercier build thread was a good read, got me a bit more interested in French stuffs. Wouldn't say no to a pink Service Course for myself...

no bike, actually

my humor appears to have been slight enough to elude you completely. i've never tried the shellac thing, perhaps i will for the next build (which is a ways off at this point).

i appreciate the feedback, kind sir. you know those pink frames pop up regularly on eBay, although they tend to be on the small side.


Guess I'm still no good at humor on the internet. Shame.
