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!

Want!

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*

Fond of a scan, me, and there’s plenty more where these came from… right here on Flickuh’s Flickr spot.

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.

The Original Rapha boy.

Generally in a race of the Barrachi type, the changes are very rapid, with stints of no more than 300 yards. Altig was at the front when I started the check – and he was still there a minute later. Something must be wrong. Altig wasn’t even swinging aside to invite Anquetil through… Suddenly, on a flat road, Anquetil lost contact and a gap of three lengths appeared between the two partners. There followed one of the most sensational things I have ever seen in any form of cycle racing during my 35 years’ association with the sport – something which I consider as great a physical performance as a world hour record or a classic road race win. Altig was riding at 30mph at the front – and had been doing so for 15 minutes. When Anquetil lost contact, he had to ease the pace, wait for his partner to go by, push him powerfully in the back, sprint to the front again after losing 10 yards in the process, and again settle down to a 30mph stint at the front. Altig did not this just once but dozens of times.

Rudi Altig. The 70s German track and road monster.

I’d love to know how old this image is, as miseducated men have been doing this round my neck of the woods for years.

Cyclisme.

October 12, 2010

Just a handful of the Pink topped cycling sports cards that I scored from L’Eroica’s flea market for just 1 euro a pop. On the back you will find all the stats and details of the rider pictured on the face of the card but unfortunate to me, these, unlike most I have seen are written in French (I really must get those lessons sorted out). A few of the cards are also signed. Result.

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!

Campioni del Ciclismo.

October 7, 2010

So, I have returned from Italy and L’Eroica with somewhat of a fancy for all things Italian… and cycling.

So, due to me and my new penchant for italian cycling goodness, you can expect a good handful of solid Italian related posts coming your way and starting right now, with this awesome bit of memorabilia and also featuring the face of the great Jean Bobet, one of my favourites of the moment, after reading his book; Tomorrow we ride.

I simply love the font used on this.

Pete Boydell. Smashing it.

September 20, 2010

No idea where this image is from nor who Pete Boydell is but it’s quite obvious from the determined and somewhat ungodly look on his face that whoever Pete Boydell is, he is absolutely smashing it.

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.

Great snap! Seen here.

Wine.

Quite possibly the best wine label in the world.

Langdale Lightweights.

July 29, 2010

I had never heard of Langdale until my pal Jon told me about them, and after a quick peruse around the ‘history’ section of their website I can safely say that the name will now stay logged in the hard drive, aka my memory banks.

Some more great pics to be found here.

This image is awesome. Spotted over at Tracko.
