I figured it might be a slow Show and Tell this week given the past couple of weeks were loaded with finds...most from swaps.

But, I could be wrong...

of course I was wrong.

It’s been a fun week; a while back I purchased a 1940s French made racing bike with a rider’s name painted on the top tube. I have been tracking the bike’s past have have gotten back to a man in France who said he purchased the bike from Tacca himself. He said he had the brake calipers off the bike as well as Tacca’s riding shoes he got with the bike’s purchase.

A package from France came in the mail yesterday:

I was happy to see the bag with just Universal super 68 caliper parts; the bike was made with a braze-on caliper studs so I was hoping not to see complete caliper, I can now trust he was telling the truth about the shoes.

The period magazines reference Tacca (Giuseppe Pierre- Joesph Tacca) who won TdF stage 16 in 1947 in them. The L’ Equip is coming from France

I purchased a one owner 1986 Bianchi racing bike

was in San Jose on a day where they have what my friend refers to as "Santa Clara Cleanup" where people put junk out front and the garbage man picks it up, but before the garbage man comes by the scrounges come by. found this sad chair that was not as old as I would have liked and is missing the feet....put it up in the "some day" loft. found these two 20" wheels wondering where the rear wheels were. aluminum rims and hubs and great shape. then I looked at them and saw they must be the wheels off a trailer or something due to the offset.

there were big piles of junk from 2 or 3 homes on every block. we got there late after all the vintage bikes got picked up.:)
