Updated 2.7.2016



 Dedicated to Lightweight Vintage Bicycles, circa 1900~1983.

  This 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. (Why?) 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 enthusiats.
5.) promoting enthusiast's camaraderie..

  Contributions & corrections are gratefully accepted HERE.
