Sweet Vintage Wilier(8 posts)

I picked this bike up from an older gentleman who gave up on cycling.

I think it's from the early 80's

I've been logging some miles on this baby, and she is wonderful...

Beautiful panagraphed "Wilier" super record components... (Though the deraileurs/shifters are old DA...) and center pivot Mavic (white) brakeset.

Turbo Saddle, Tubies et all... though I have swapped pedals for Look and added a 12cm stem.

I'm hoping to find Super Record parts to bring it all to original spec.

Any info on Wilier would be greatly appreciated.
is that a Huret cyclometer?Hank

haven't seen one of those in a while...

check eBay for old Record stuff (though sometimes the prices can be a bit silly)
Miles of cableJesse Smith

I've never seen a bike with that much cable exiting the h-bars. I know that you want to avoid tight bends, but that would get annoying. You could use it as clothes line to hang up a weeks worth of jerseys.
I agreeRich W

I plan to replace all the cables, and shorten them...

Excellent! Beautiful bike! I have no idea what you paid, but my guess would be that you scored!
Thanks for sharing.

This is quite a looker. You must finish out with the proper Campy equipment. You may be able to find what you need on www.Campyonly.com. They have a pretty good classified section. It might get kind of pricey but would be well worth it.

... for a bike of that age. I think you may have a prize there. I'm not familiar with the name, but there is a shop in Vista, CA, that might know something about it and they do stock vintage parts including Campy dating way back to the dark ages. Shucks, they even have a good stock of wooden rims!

Check out their website, cyclart.com.
