Huffy racing bike

Historic pro bike: Andy Hampsten's 1988 7-Eleven Huffy Giro d'Italia

Hampsten's steed back then was a prototypical road racer of the late '80s with a lugged steel frame and fork, a 1in threaded steerer and shifters that were mounted on the down tube, not conveniently integrated into the brake levers. But the characteristics he sought from his machine back then aren't far off what racers demand today.
