Here is a picture of my sister and I from a few years back when I was still living in North Vancouver. These are 1950s Schwinn cruiser bikes that we eventually put 8 speed cassettes on to make them a truly first generation mountain bikes (anyone seen the Klunkers DVD?). Recently picked up a 1998 Marinoni Squadra and am hoping to have some pictures of that beauty soon.

ps. The paint on these are original. Mine was a maroon that just faded to brown. Went so well with the patina.

I posted this one in the Saved From The Dump thread. It's a 1985 Trek 470 that I completely restored. Took her out for the inaugural spin today, and what a ride! You can see the excitement on my face.

@HamboneSlim - I love Wiggins, and I haven't even met her yet! I've always wanted a guinea pig. How sweet. How old is Wiggins? How old was she when you adopted her?

I don't have a picture of me on any of these that I can find, but here's what I ride! I built them all up from bare frame/forks.

A Nova Pro I cross bike I made into my commuter
An 86 Sannino built with mostly turn of the century Shimano components
An ~'10 Felt ZC with contemporary Sram

Me, making my roady look tiny. I restored this one last summer, it's an ~1968 Italian Chordia / classy Frankenstein. Check out the before picture, she was pretty far gone when I started working my magic.



Currently restoring a ~1964 French (assumed Mercier) road bike, little longer frame than this one and rolling on 27s. I love this ones 26 x 1 3/8" tires during the winter, planning to make the Frenchie into a light 'summer' bike.

Just your standard Saturday group ride, a loop around the entirety of Bora Bora ...that's me on the far left.

A little OT since I was not on my own bike but a terrible rented beach cruiser upon which I looked like a clown riding a child's bike, but oh well, close enough.

This was a stop on an 18 day sailing trip in French Polynesia: two 52' sailboats, six instructors, eighteen students. Still recovering...
