Giro D’Italia. 1991. Passo Pordoi.

June 10, 2011

Two stunning photographs of the Passo Pordoi.

The portrait shot is surreal, the mountains actually look like they have been painted in. Amazing.

Found.

Speaking of Raleigh. Van Vliet 82.

Raleigh x Levis. Real vintage.

May 12, 2011

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Levi’s/Raleigh Pro Team bikes(as seen below!), love Levi’s and of course Raleigh is doing great things these days. So when I had the chance to swoop some of these NOS Pro Team Toques, worn by the team during the 80’s, of course I didn’t say no! Now if only someone would make a re-issue kit(hint, hint). Hopefully this Commuter Line will get Levi’s psyched on cycling again and maybe even get them in the mood to co-sponsor another pro team.

Man I need one of those knits, for real.

Still hooked on scans!
Via Windy’s amazing photoset.

Early Eighties.

February 10, 2011

Peep the winter training on a brakeless fixed gear bike, tough guy! Seen over at Doug Siple’s super, awesome flickr spot.

I have posted on this guy’s photographs and scans before but honestly, he has so, so much good stuff, if you have the time, go trawl.

Flying Scot.

January 11, 2011

Adding the final touches to a Flying Scot frame before painting. Behind the doors of the glittering front of their Murray Street shop, Rattray’s framebuilders worked their magic in these dark atmospheric surroundings.

Such an amazing photograph, for lovers of the Flying Scot.

Blue Peter. 1987.

Legends of TT in Photographs.

November 25, 2010

So, I have not long gotten my grubby mitts on the TT frame I have been seeking for a good few months, and while hunting around this massive web of goodness, for inspiration on a somewhat ‘period correct’ build, I came across this super and smashing forum thread of pure appreciation for the golden era of British Time Trialling.

As many black and white and colour photograph scans that one could ever wish for. Seriously, page after page of sloping top tubes, drilled out brake levers, skin suits, 24″ front wheels, the lot.

A big thanks to all the contributors of said thread, your photographs are nothing short of amazing!

Found.

Ohio.

November 16, 2010

I am so grateful of the people who take the time out to upload their photograph collections to the web. Was it not for these people we would not have the great variety of goodness that we do today, and these from xsallyx are no exception.

All taken during the 1970’s in Ohio during what looks like a long and fruitful amateur racing career.

Kevin Sayles Snaps.

November 10, 2010

More great vintage cycling scans, but this time found on the flickr spot of Kevin Sayles, framebuilder for Woodrup and Thorn. As you can probably tell, I love a scan!

Three Amazing Photographs.

November 8, 2010

This guy has some fantastic bits up on his Flickr spot and I especially like his shots from Goodwood in 82.

Man, doesn’t film look great? *reaches for the recently acquired canonet 28*

Keith Anderson Flickr Grips.

October 27, 2010

Damn, I’d love to see that orange pursuit bike in it’s entirety… The toptube looks pretty crazy, as does the aero webbing at the seat cluster.

Go check out Keith Anderson’s Flickrspot. There is a lot of focus on custom paintjobs but have a sift and you might find some buried bike treasure.

German Track in B & W.

October 12, 2010

What a brilliant gallery. Historische Bildergalerie des Bahnradsports has an absolute sack full of vintage track cycling scans from the early 1900s up until the early sixties and they are all great. If only I could read German!

Black and White

September 20, 2010

Some great shots of the six day races in America just after WWII found over at bikeraceinfo. I especially like the top one here, braces and side slicked barnets are a great look.

And lean.

Great photograph of the Badger up front. *Note to self, must get some vintage Brikos.
