Well, another vintage bike has arrived on the scene. Courtesy of my dad it will not be ridden a lot as it is fairly rare these days.
In 1973, the Teledyne Titan was introduced as the first mass produced titanium road bikes. They were only produced through 1976. My dad purchased his from Brittain's Cycle Sport in Spokane WA some time in the 1980's.
The bikes were raced but were also notorious for feeling like spaghetti (the frames flexed a lot) and fracturing/tearing at the seat post clamp and bottom bracket.
My dad's suffered a fracture at the seat post clamp a few years ago and he was able to have it repaired this year. The bike had a few upgrades done, including new tubular tire. It is a very, nice lightweight bike. It is also one I have been instructed not to ride it except on flat terrain and non-windy day. We live in Ellensburg so I think it will be safe on the wall.
