As a helicopter pilot Scott was looking for a vintage bike with performance. We started with a Peugeot Competition that featured Reynolds 531 frame and Mavic wheels. Added Campy Veloce brakes for sure stopping power and a rare Shimano Sport LX rear derailleur that featured machined chain wheels spinning on ball bearings for sure quick shifting. We stopped short of adding wings.
At 6"3" and the mass to fill out his frame Dominic needed a bike that could carry the load. Starting with a 68CM Nishiki 12 speed, traded out the stock wheels for 40 spoke Super Champion rims laced to Bulls Eye cartridge bearing hubs for maxium strength. With the addition of a Brooks B17 saddle and rear rack Dom is ready to commute.
Justin was looking for a unique bike. We started with a Schwinn Voyaguer 11.8 in solid chrome. Added Nitto 44CM noodle handle bars, a longer stem to get the bars higher,Cane Creek aero brake levers, natural cork bar tape, Brooks Flyer honey saddle, Rivendell Grip King pedals, Out your back door military surplus sead bag, and a unique tail light that mounts to a fender brase on.
