    Winner! Winner! Winner!

    USAZorro has correctly "named" all my bikes!!

    Or should I say, has put a frame to a name!

    FREE paintjob was the prize, in case you weren't following the "contest".

    And here, in no particular order, are the answers.

    There's the Clive, White - Clive Stewart - 1969
    The Cannonball, Yellow - Cannondale SM700 - 1986
    Gordon the Big Blue Express Locomotive, - Blue BikeE (recumbent)
    Tigger, Orange - Greenspeed GTT tandem (recumbent)
    Ernesto, Lavender - Colnago
    The Hurri, Blue with silver boom - Challenge Hurricane (recumbent)
    Merlin the Mutt, Black/Silver - Merlin
    The Ferrari, Red - Greenspeed GTX (recumbent)
    my "Secret Weapon Bike", Black - TourEasy (recumbent) The color on this one's been a kicker to try to find, and this is just a guess. CORRECT! cuz I'm fat & lazy, so I need all the help I can get!
    Granite Gargoyle, Marbled Granite - Rock Lobster #13
    Physical Graffitti & - red, mauve and others - Schwinn Apple Krate
    Rainbow - various colors - Rock Lobster Cross bike

    Thanks for playing! Contest closed.

    No sir. Ze Holland remains as she was delivered. There's no rust and tons of character.

    About three weeks ago I picked up a Trek 760 from a local CL posting. It has a Dura Ace hubs and drivetrain, 105 shifters, Campagnolo brakes, Stronglight headset, Cinelli bars and stem and Mavic rims. Set me back $75 American. It definitely could use the paintjob (the finish is the only detraction from this find) whilst I contemplate adapting her to more modern componentry. I have delusions of trying my hand at a novice race this year or next, and there's no way I make those changes to the Bob Jackson. Doesn't hurt that she's made of 531P - making her almost as light as a 753 machine.

    Dr. D is in the midst of working on my Raleigh Professional, so I'll be the first kid on my block to have two of his exceptional works. Hopefully, next year, that number will go up again.

    Dang, look at the time. I'm going to bed now.

    Thanks!

    Dang Dr. D! I certainly tried hard enough! I was about to submit my new list this morning. But---

    John, how the heck did you figure out Gordon, Secret Weapon and Rainbow? Those three had me stumped like there was no tomorrow. Here's the list I had planned to re-submit this morning: I was still way off and had already used too much sermon time on this.

    The Clive= '69 Clive Stuart, pearl white with neon grafitti

    The Cannonball=Cannondale MTB, SM700, yellow fading into a rad-pink, with a red sticker?

    Gordon the Big Blue Express Locomotive= Ice Tandem, recumbent pulling the Burley Trailer? Or--- one of your MTBs pulling one of those kids one wheel attachment bikes (the ones with a rear wheel, seat and bars but no front wheel, with the Burley attached?

    Tigger=Greenspeed tandem, recombent trike, orange with black tires and blazing yellow seats

    Ernesto=Oldnago, Colnago road bike, lavender, riden with retro Detto Pietro shoes and a Super Record rear derailleur that has an Ideale saddle that has been broken in for 25 years

    The Hurri=Challenge Hurricane, recumbent, silver and blue

    Merlin the Mutt=Merlin Racing Cycles. Original black & chrome with a Campy Rally RD (like the one on my Paramount?)

    The Ferrari= Greenspeed GTX , recombent trike, orange

    "Secret Weapon Bike"=Trek SomethingORother, MTB (you painted it and forget what it is actually), or--- the Schwinn World (it seems to me you mention this bike in connection to 27" tires, so thus my uncertainty)

    Granite Gargoyle=Rock Lobster #13, originally built in '79 but not even a R.L., it was hand
    lettered as a Paul Sadoff, granite grey?

    Physical Graffitti= Schwinn Apple Krate, red, custom muscle bike

    Rainbow=recumbent with a kite with and multi colored streamers, painted with Old School Flake's Micro Prism (best guess)

    Congrationulations to USAZorro and thanks to Dr.Deltron for the fun.

    I won't comment on one fourth of the bikes being 'bents.

    I saw the rainbow on Dr. D's web site - not mentioned as such, but seeming to have enough colors to qualify. The Secret Weapon and Gordon were the two that stumped me too.

    After a couple of wrong tries, I figured Gordon had to be able to carry multiple passengers to be a locomotive, and I saw a post about the BikeE being set up with multiple seats. The color kinda took care of itself.

    The Secret weapon had to be a relatively new acquisition (since it was no longer the Colnago), and after incorrectly guessing the Crossroads and the AL-1, I thought I'd try the TourEasy, since it was new to Dr. D last fall. It helped that I'd been getting the vibe that Dr. D primarily rides recumbents, and that I was running out of other bikes to guess. The color was a complete guess. I Googled TourEasy and the first picture I saw was black - so I went with it.
