“Hope” is the thing with feathers, That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops ... at all - Emily Dickenson

McLean Redux, Redux, Redux

No more pics? So I lied. I "found" some Cinelli toe clips. Also, I stuck domed Indian head nickels in the bar ends. Close up photography makes one see the lint and fuzz around old Iron Tail, and the fact that the bar ends should have had the saw marks buffed out a little. Eh? If Cino Cinelli thought they should be shiny, he'd have made them that way.

What's with the Pug Valentino?

He's Bud, the brains of team. He comes up with the ideas and I type them,on account he ain't got no fingers.

Beautiful Bike! The grey on grey color scheme is especially nice. Is that a nitto seatpost?

Gunnar Berg said...

Good eye. It's an older Nitto Jaguar (Frog). Good quality with a nice setback. I keep pricing 27.2 Campy SRs and they seem too expensive. Maybe some day.

Keep lying. The McLean is worth seeing anytime.It is the perfect expression in metal of the racing bike. Sadly,its creator left us much too soon.
