    Legnano info and evaluation

    I've been casually looking for a Legnano for some time, but the ones in my size (59-62cm) are uncommon, to say the least. Not sure of the model though it looks like the Mod 50 featured on Classic Rendezvous. Yours is the desirable color with chrome lugs. Unfortunately I can't give a useful...

    1963 Paramount.

    No worries RRH48, glad to offer any useful info. Juvela, the provenance report confirms mfg of November and December but doesn't specify all components. With the build window in mind and that the bike may not have shipped until January/February I've gone with the assumption it's factory...

    1963 Paramount.

    Also, per Juvela above, early Vainqueur 999 brake caliper. The lettering should be red but I didn't realize it when I refurbished them - one day I'll correct that but ... Lazy. :)

    1963 Paramount.

    Thanks! I was looking for years before I stumbled across one at a reasonable price - and chrome no less. Yours is a looker as is and it would be great to see it when you're done with it, whichever direction you go. As for mine, the full drive train is early gen Campag Record, that was all on...

    1963 Paramount.

    Nice. My '63 is ser. P39, made not long before yours. As far as I know the drive train is original, I had to track down the stem and handlebars and that was a pain. I have the correct button-release brake levers but haven't replaced the 1st gen versions with those yet. Lazy... I did take...

    72-73 World Voyageur Seatpost size?

    You'll like it once you get it outfitted, the chrome/orange combo pops and they're great rides. I get compliments on mine, but then again I live in Tennessee and there's a rumor some big college football team is somehow associated with the color....

    72-73 World Voyageur Seatpost size?

    Nice find indeed. I have an orange '72 that was almost complete including the Hupel 26.6 seatpost (too short for me). The only thing missing was the bash guard for the chainring - hang onto that, they tend to fetch a decent price as I discovered... :)

    1947 Arbos Corsa

    Very very nice. I'm digging the Cambio Corsa RD - one of my grail features, regardless of the impracticability.

    Center-Pull Brakes

    Actually pretty easy to dissassemble and work on, just use care when releasing the springs - they can bite a bit if you prang your finger. I've done a ton of them, mostly to clean and polish. Your first time doing it only work on one at a time using the other as a reassembly reference - hard...

    Yet another mystery bike

    +1 on the above, plus the steerer would be 25 mm with 22 mm ID and also be flat on the back vs. slot-keyed if French. The tops of the fork crown do look like those from the PX models but that may not have been exclusive to Peugeot.

    The PX-10 That Started My Bicycle Obsession...

    Very nice! I have a '72 PX10 in the same color scheme, picked it up at an estate sale where it had been hanging upside down on a wall for 30+ years. Like yours it has almost no wear. It's back on a wall again and in my living room, but I pull it down and ride it every now and then...

    Motobecane Gran Jubile

    Not to hijack this thread, but curious how you rate this particular stand? I have a touring bike with Tange 2 tubing and don't currently use a stand, but if this could handle some weight it might be a good addition. In general, I don't use kickstands on any of my bikes, all use butted thin...

    Motobecane Gran Jubile

    Very nice! You probably know but use caution with a kickstand if you go that route - Vitus 172 is similar to Reynolds 531 and so pretty thin and the chain stays easily crimped by over-tightening a bolt-on stand. My 531 tubed Jubilé has some damage from a previous owner's addition- but...

    Motobecane Gran Jubile

    Nice. Pics of the finished product please!

    Who made a high-quality front derailleur to fit a 1" seat tube?

    Decent quality but so-so cachet, probably outside your parameters but - Suntour Spirt FD's came in 28.6 and 25.4 That's the only one that comes to mind off the bat. Seems to be no shortage of those on the 'bay.
