I'm the old guy in front. The stoker is my son, the passenger my grand daughter. The bike is my 1964 Schwinn Twinn.
Too bad the fella I asked to take the picture didn't get more of the bike in the picture.
Well, here, I can fix that.
Cruising through the Sacramento Delta last Sunday:

I came in 50 something out of 90-ish. Not bad for my first cross race. I was racing this:
Loved that bike, although those 180 crank arms damn near killed me.

My wife snapped a picture of me and my Traveler when I came home from work. I love riding in the cold (not kidding). Commute pictures.jpg
1999 Schwinn Paramount, built by Match cycle in Woodinville, WA. Pretty much everything I ever wanted in a bike. Bought the frame/fork with the crankset and brakes for $900 from a friend, and then finished out the rest using my tax return last year.

Reynolds 853 steel is awesome to ride on. When I first rode this after having ridden my old Cannondale Synapse for 3 years, it was weird - I wasn't used to the flex from cranking. But once you get into a good cadence, the frame almost helps your feet along. It's a strange sensation, but I've been able to crank faster and attain higher peak speeds with a heavier bike, because it is so forgiving.
Here are some recent restorations that I have done. The Paris Sport was converted into the townie. The CILO will be my road bike once the snow melts (unfortunately, I don't pictures pre-restoration). The mountain bike is a Scott. All were powdercoated. For the CILO I found replacement decals on EBAY and made a few discrete changes to the drivetrain. Enjoy!
