1961 Bianchi Competizione. This was a barn find (literally) in about 1974, and I've had the frame ever since. The frame's contorted history (including 25+ years of neglect by me) is too long to relate here. A few years ago, I had Ed Litton repaint it and I assembled the more or less period-appropriatge parts in the photo. (I have swapped some out a fair number of the parts shown here for safety and comfort.) It has been my Eroica CA bike twice. It's a fair bit small for me, and consequently it looks better than it rides, at least for me.

I was one of the supporters of this idea, so I should throw on the woodpile. This is pretty pristine Time VXR for the money:

This is a new flavor - but I like it... Probably more for "general discussion" though. Somebody needs to start a "show us your barn finds thread".

CSi 62L time capsule.. Full Record 8spd. Beautiful.

I should buy it - but it's also probably a hair big for me.

If anyone's got one in similar condition in a 60L - hit me up.

This stainless Bridgestone is a little different. Needs attention, but relatively cheap.

+1 I don't have the room, the money, or the need, but that is a deal. I put about 1000 miles on the CSI I bought here back in the spring and really like it.

Nothing not to love about that bike other than it being a biggun. I think the CRL I had was a bit bigger though..

I have a CRL... always wondered if the CSI was any better/different. I suspect not. At least not in any significant way.

Talking to the seller. I dig the setup and color. Saddle height is 84.5cm in the photo.

I, for one, like this new PSA setup. All in one place, go straight to the last page to see the latest. Hope it stays around
