I ride one of the last made-in-USA Schwinn mountain bikes (see signature). It has the Team USA red-white-and-blue paint job and I bought it from a San Diego firefighter, making it the perfect parade and national holiday ride. I rode it in last year's Encinitas Holiday Parade, which celebrated the city's 1986 incorporation. 1988 was as close as I could come. :)

You've probabhly seen all of these before. Too bad. :p

1967 Paramount, repainted, upgraded with 9-speed Shimano drivetrain. Goodness from the Chicago cage. Heavy Rivendell influence in this one.

1978 Eisentraut "A," the pride of Oakland. 10 speed Campy.
http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u...t/IMG_1055.jpg

1993 Russ Denny-built Fuso - nice SoCal steel. Currently just a frame and fork, as I may need to find a new home for it . . . .
http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u...p/100_0653.jpg

Now for the ones I don't have photos of. I also have a 2000 Lemond Zurich f&f that I no longer ride, a Medici f&f with a decent respray and meh decals that I bought because it was just too stupid-cheap not to, a 1993 Trek 520 complete touring rig (I'm the original owner) that I haven't used in too many years, and Burley Bossa Nova tandem that dates from sometime between 1985 and 1995 - seriously, even though I'm the original owner, I have no clue how old it really is - it was hanging around a shop, and the shop owner had it outside for years as a display so the paint was chipped and dinged from kids climbing all over it. I got it for half price.

My US made MTBs need photo updates, so here are a couple roadies, and a townie.

Circa 1974 Davidson - very early in Bill's career. It's worth mentioning that Bill is not nostalgic at all, but he did thank me for doing a top-notch resto-mod (my drillium) on this rig. I did have it repainted at his shop, Elliott Bay Bicycles.

1974 Schwinn Sports Tourer, 4130 straight-gauge fillet brazed steel. Now dressed up as a poseur porteur:

The newest bike in my stable is ca. 2010/11 Rivendell. Built by Mark Nobilette, and painted by Joe Bell:

Nice Masi, but, needs full Campy, needs tubulars, and you need a bigger frame!

Really fantastic bicycles everyone!

Here's one that haunts me a little.

I keep looking for one of these in my size.

Anyone know what it is? :)

Amazing bunch of bikes. That MTB fork early on is a Manitou II, not a Judy.

Google cycleball or radball....this is an old one (late 70's).

WOW! :eek::eek: I had no idea...

RubberLegs 10-16-12 06:23 AM

My old '79 Schwinn LeTour IV, bought for $25, worked on it, rode for a while, stripped it completely down and repainted/rebuilt it as a 14 speed with 700s. Good solid ride, just a little on the heavy side after casting away the old chrome wheelset.

Wow.
Q: How do you hide a diamond?
A: Bury it in a pile of diamonds.
