Ricardo Elite bicycle in pictures

September 17, 2009

This is my Ricardo Elite bicycle. I actually inherited it from an in-law. To the best of my knowledge it was made in Adelaide in about 1981 before the Ricardo brand was bought by Repco and production sent to China.

It has Shimano 600 mech, Ukai wheels and Shimano hubs on a good old, if a bit battered, steel frame. I rode it in the week and have decided I want to ride it more. I've only got two problems with it. It is too big for me (that's why I took the original drop bars off) and the seat post it stuck which is a big problem that I have written about before. Eventually I will get that sorted out, either by chemicals (or a can of Coke) or an angle grinder.
