Don't hate me for the decals. This was the first bike I ever sprayed (non-rattle-can) and I just didn't want to spring for foil decals if I didn't like my painting ability.

Not that it adds anything important to your history, but I bought my first Gitane, and first 10 speed, from Mel Pinto's Falls Church, Va store (I think that's the town) back around 1972. IIRC I paid ...

I was wondering what were the longest reach Campy brakes made in that era. Were some longer than 57mm? Guessing the Super Corsa frames were made for 700c only?

How did this work? I'm running 700c tubular rims and it appears that I will need around 60cm reach or more on the rear. The Racers I'm using fit fine, but I have a complete NR drivetrain and would l ...

Thanks. I have used a spraygun before, but a full size one to paint cars, and too many years ago. The decals are easy, but there are some limitations if you print at home like I did - no metallics, ...
