LOOK KG 86 "Bernard Hinault"sbarner02/18/2018 05:58 AM
Photos from the 1986 Tour clearly show that the bikes used by the La Vie Claire team had a slightly different brake bridge than the frame(s) in these photos. The earlier bridge did not clamp around the stays as these do but was bonded to the inside of the stays. The design may have been changed to strengthen the connection. At least one photo shows Hinault's bike with the Bernard Hinault down tube decal on the left side, while others show the "spiel" decal on the right. One wonders if Lemond's frame had a different left side decal! (Lemond had been picked by LVC for the win, but Hinault did not accept the role of domestiqué, fighting to the finish.) Another pic shows Lemond climbing the Alp l'Huez on a Look with a Reynolds decal on the fork. The team frames were painted silver, which would have allowed many substitutions that would be difficult for spectators to spot.
Marcel Kint (Road Race)bonnvelo01/29/2018 03:34 PM
Lovely frame! Apart from the fork crown, this is exactly the same as my Dossche Sport (Gent). The circular cutouts, combined with the cutout in the shape of a letter D in the bottom head lug is typical for Dossche Sport. Maybe these frames were built for M Kint by Dossche, or maybe it is actually a Dossche and someone put M Kint transfers on it?

Just concurring: Mondia was a Swiss company.
Alan R30 CarbonioMavicmaniac12/06/2017 03:50 PM
R/30 model needs a 27,2 mm seatpost. Teka team became to use in 1989 R/30 in carbon or in alloy. Vertical tube also needs braze on front derailleur.
Oria ML 25Orlando8411/27/2017 12:35 PM
According to Oria documentation, this tubing was plain gauge, drawn 0.7-0.8mm thick.
Cinelli Bottom Bracket Shell (French Threads)longrider11/09/2017 03:56 PM
Can we assume that, like most quality components, the Cinelli BB might have been emulated by other component manufacturers? I have a mystery Mercier frame c1980 with a BB very similar to the first image shown, e.g.the semi-open cable guides and single plain base hole. There are no other marks, though, apart from a stamped "3" which also appears on the steerer tube. It's a mystery I'd love to solve.
Mercier Super Vitus 971 (Late 1970's - Early 1980's)longrider10/12/2017 01:59 PM
Merciers are a real mystery once the head badge is lost, and with it the serial number. This frame is as close as I've found so far to one I have, but if I've learnt anything in my quest then it's that Merciers vary enormously in their detailing.
Medici Pro Strada (Late 1970's)qcpmsame09/19/2017 08:03 AM
This frame has been identified by others as a 1980 model, this best fits the make up of things. The chain rings are now Super Record, brake calipers are Nuovo Record, brake levers remain Victory/Triomphe model, and the derailleurs were swapped for post CPSC dated items more correct for the year model of the frame.
Cinelli Track Fork Crownbulgie07/01/2017 08:38 PM
Not sure if it is Cinelli brand (I don't think it is) -- it was sold by Columbus as Columbus brand. It is not a track crown, as shown by the brake hole and the oval blades. It was not investment cast, it is machined in three pieces, a true two-plate crown. It only fits Columbus oversized tandem blades.
Takahashi Bottom Bracket Shellbulgie07/01/2017 08:31 PM
Very high quality, cast in Japan by Hitachi -- you can see the Hitachi symbol, that circular cast-in hallmark seen near the left edge of the photo of the bottom. This shell was also available without the long points on the inner parts of the chainstay sockets, just a traditional rounded spoon shape, intended for use with a separate chainstay bridge. Traditional tube sizes only: 1-1/8" ST & DT, 7/8" round chainstays. Made in English or Italian thread, 68 or 70 mm wide respectively.
