Purchased yesterday for my girlfriend. Manufactured April 1988, full Shimano 105 group... I'm jealous! Needs decent pedals and I'll probably swap out the tape eventually.

similiar bike

I had a similiar bike but w/ 520cc front wheel and 700cc rear wheel. I sold it because the small front wheel wasn't that comfortable and I couldn't get 520cc innertube/wheels. I wish it would have had the two normal sized wheels. Your bike is sweet!


Thanks for the comments... I actually came here to grab the picture for posting on that C&V thread.

I'm not too fond of the shifters, but the seller seems to like putting them on his bikes. They'll be easier for its rider, too, who is not much of a cyclist yet.

The silver bit at the seatpost junction is a quick release skewer. Since this picture was taken, I have cleaned up the hoods and changed the pedals and tape.

Your girlfriend's Ironman

Amazing bike. I've never seen one converted to stem shifting.
What's that item next to the seat tube on the right at the top?

Ive also never seen that color before. Really, really nice.
Bleach and citrus cleaner will get those hoods close to new.

There's an Ironman thread on Bike Forums, classic and vintage.

Thanks for sharing such a nice bike. Original seat was black, but tape was white.


needs a white tape and a white seat : )
