One from way back in the galleries. It satisfies my "retro nerd" longings.

But oh-so-very nice. Still like the converted Bridgestone, though.

Chrome, lugs, pin stripes--beautiful.

direct hit.

tho perhaps far too tasty to ride.

prefer red and white
to gold or silver, as such
modern vintage, this.

Headed back to California next Spring. I might have to swing up to Folsom (the city not the prison) to pay a visit. ...Spirito says I must, and who am I to argue.

purists dont dig them as its made post '81 or something or other but i rode it a few times and its the finest frame/bike i have ridden. dances and surges, looks perfect and his with campy pista groupset (mandatory high flange hubs) is NYC's best bike. evrything about it says sexy. he even shows up on road rides wearing a russian Cinelli jersey with the first "c" being a cinelli logo it reads - CCCP - class act.

its got it all !! but what sort of friend is he that wont sell it to me - sheesh

but im gonna show him - building the same wheels with a road version of the high flanges for the merckx and then cant wait to see him drool. its gonna be a bike war and my ego is getting the better of my usual humble self. im taking a little risk with a nitto stem instead of the usual cinelli 1R (as he has) but apart from that i think ive got him licked - if not the merckx is going to ebay and will make plans for something even more flash. perhaps a pinarello Prologo as a fixed gear pursuit bike or a maybe the vinatge olmo in a complete chrome and polished silver fixed gear such a bike slut/whore

delta brakes - - -liv2padl

i'm riding an Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra from way back in the daze with Campy C Record Gruppo on it which included the Delta Brakes. they looked trick at the time but are abit on the heavy side and most importantly, these brakes don't stop a bike very well. i've not changed them but let my experience guide you ... if you're charging downhill in a full tuck, don't expect to stop in a hurry if needs be.

knowing a little of both sellers that haiku-baby has shown the seller of the merckx is a penny pincher and is oh-so important about worrying on the small details and the seller of the pinarello is nice guy and someone to trust.

lets just call it spirito outing.

if ya want the real deal and have a frame that will be worth quite some value when restored and assembled with period parts then throw down what is very small coin on this baby

if ya need advice on the sort of parts needed to build it up ill be glad to advise. these were the business in the day this was made and i know that the headset is worth the price of the auction alone. spirito thought long and hard about it but its a little too big and i dont have the coin to build it right now. still might buy it as wall art and then pimp it later on.

it's like cooking. gonna take me eight minutes to eat, but forty-five to cook it. solution: taco bell.

what no mrs. haikuSpirito
Jun 14, 2002 12:23 PM
actually there is no mrs. spirito now either.

perhap she got tired of me not wanting to cook for 45 mins just to finish in 2.

so the trek for various grade sushi begins again. ;-)

ah, yes--there is a mrs. haiku, and also a junior laureate, tho the little one prefers blinking sneakers to literate-tweakers |o). tho domesticated as such, still i find difficulty justifying hours spent in preparation for mere minutes of ingestion. t'is my "new millineum" mentality, or perhaps a bent from growing up a pupil of football-and-beer holidays. nonetheless, matters of libation and consumption aside, i'd rather pedal it than restore it (or, for that matter, than peddle it). seems i'm destined to have a personal mechanic and one to drive permanent motorpacing and SAG duty, if i can only convince my boss to pony-up.

That 'friggin thing is my size. Can hear it now-"you spent HOW much $$ on a 20yr old bike?!" Actually, I'm looking for an old Gitane circa late 1970's. My 1st road bike. Now I could kick my arse for getting rid of that pale blue beauty!
