to Lightweight Vintage Bicycles, circa 1900~1983.
not-for-profit site is to encourage those
interested in enjoying and preserving vintage
lightweight "racing" style bicycles (road,
touring, track, randonneur & elegant city) from
the early 20th century until 1983.
These primarily have steel frames, most often
lug built, and not welded, injection molded, nor
glued. We are not including mountain bikes, BMX,
recumbent, middle weights nor balloon-tired
bikes. Those bikes have merit, but are not "On
Topic" for the Classic Rendezvous.
Our goals are:
1.) identification of makers.
2.) providing images of original
bicycles & components.
3.) providing information & history
about the makers.
4.) listing resources for
5.) promoting enthusiast's
