A lot. All Shimano 600 (Some 6200 series, some 6400). Shifters and Brake levers are 1st generation STI now.

My first baby. I bought this the summer going into my senior year in college. My intention was just to get a bike to get around campus quickly in the hot, hot summer in Texas. I got it, did online research on the bike, and quickly got into vintage steel bikes. Then I wanted to do the MS150 from Houston to Austin, so I did that. Then I rode it 500 miles along the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Then I rode it across America from San Diego, CA, to Pawley’s Island, SC.

This is the one that started it all for me, and I don’t think I’ll ever let it go.DSC_2436
