Every once in a while I hear from a reader about how this blog was helpful in some way to his or her bicycle project. And I gotta tell you honestly "It really makes my day" After all, That is what this blog is all about. Also a sincere "Thanks" to those of you who have left comments and sent e-mails. I have learned a lot from your feedback.

Above is Everett K`s classic road bike restoration. Everett`s dad purchased the frame in the 1970`s while stationed in Holland. After returning to the USA he rode it occasionally and eventually stored it for 10+ years.
Also very reasonably priced. Nice job routing that front brake cable too!
cassette. Campagnolo front derailleur, Zeus Criterium rear derailleur. The 54/45 Sugino crank set has been replaced with a 53/39 Campagnolo Veloce C.S. Campy Record Ace Hubs w Campy quick release skewer (Zeus Q.R. on rear) Nice job on the handlebar tape. There is a lot going on there with the levers, barcons and cable coming out of the handlebar. Also I like the modern brake shoes on the classic Weinmann center-pull brakes. Nice mix of the old and the new. (well newer anyway) Congratulations Everett on a job well done.And thanks for sharing it with us. Maybe one day you can pass this bike on to your son or daughter.
