Pin-up Worthy: Meet Eunice

Eunice the dark apricot with navy lettering Gran Turismo is an early 80's chro moly steel lugged frame 15 speed light touring road bike built by Univega from Japan.

It is pretty much true mint, maybe a scratch or two but by that I mean one or two, literally, the paint is maybe in the best condition I've ever seen on a vintage bike.

Vintage Suntour derailleurs and shifters, Sakae crankset, stem, bars and seatpost.

This bike has a brand new wheelset, new chain, new tires, new cables, new bar tape, new saddle, and it has been completely stripped down to the frame and professionally rebuilt with new bearing grease in the bottom bracket and headset, so it is basically a new bike on an old frame that was barely ever used to begin with.

Eunice has to be seen in person, this bike is truly beautiful.

The fact is that change happens whether you resist it or not so you might as well use its momentum to hurl yourself in positive directions, and that is what we will be looking to do. Some bookkeeping:
* We may change the hours a bit for the fall and winter season
* We also may be worksh…

New Photos of Natalia the Nishiki Century

Yep, Natalia is still here. We recently found a new wall to photograph against and it really brings out the best in Natalia's natural beauty. Hopefully these photos will pique someone's interest to take this lovely bike home. 
Email us at friends@cogcycleschicago.com to come check out this bike. We can always arrange custom builds if this one isn't the right fit.



















New Year

It's been awhile since I have been able to post anything here. Brian and I are looking forward to the 2019 bike season. This year we hope to find a storefront and once we do, we hope you'll come visit us!

In the meantime, check out some of our past builds:
