    A Monday morning with Stella

    Forgot to turn off the alarm clock last night it went off at 6:25 I said **** it woke up and grabbed the camera, car keys and bike stand.

    Camera is a Canon Powershot A630 with broken battery door mod

    Would have been awesome of there were some thunderheads in the background offshore. I've shot a few of those.





















    brought my 2nd favorite subject along























































    bike and builder





    and my two favorite toys next to each other



    Might make a small slideshow with all of these, there's about 150 pics total.
    Stella - 84' Ciocc Designer - going under the chrome plater
    Maria - 86' Tommaso SLX - New money pit
    Lola - 76' Schwinn Superior - restoration project
    Josie - 74' Schwinn Continental - fixie project

    Funny - I have never thought of carrying a bike stand with me.

    Yeah I'd slide right off that. Makes my arms tired just looking at it.

    You have about three times as many pictures of your bike in this thread than I have of my bike in total.

    My favorite accessory is the mini pump on the top tube. Was a full sized frame pump really too heavy?

    //sorrry...don't mean to pile on. I do love the frame.

    they are original 600 pedals

    i ordered ultegra clipless and Gaerne tri carbon shoes.

    Not quite Cocoa Beach, Indian Harbor Beach, few miles south.

    it came with Shimano 600 originally, everyone builds these things with Campy thought I'd do something different for once

    the bike gets its name from a very popular club song from the 90's by Jam and Spoon.

    Lola is still under construction, but I do have this pic



    Once my pedals and shoes are in, most likely tomorrow, Stella will be finished, unless a set of Campy Skeletons comes up somewhere real cheap

    Lola will be the focus of my next restoration project.
