    And I'm not sure you'd remember which one it was anyway, as many bikes as you have!
    Under "fleet" in the dictionary, it says to see Auchen's bike collection.

    My first good bike, a 1979 Univega Viva Sport. Sold it to a guy who didn't appreciate it or finish paying for it. I'd still have it. Sold a Gran Rally a few years back. When I saw the dude load it into his car I knew I'd screwed up.

    My old Bridgestone 300 Sport Touring. It was terribly comfortable and fit me perfectly(that's how I remember it anyway). It had really nice condition paint, too. Obviously never ridden much before I got it. If I ever see one again, or even better yet - a frame-set in good condition, I'll grab it without a doubt and cover it in "out of place" Dura-Ace.
    90 Miyata 914 with full Dura-Ace
    74 Ellis-Briggs, full butted 531
    80s Cierra Professional 5000, Tange Champion 2 and Shimano 600
    2011 New Belgium Cruiser
    Fetish Cycles "Discipline" built up with DJ2 fork and Shimano XTR, LX, Avid BB7.

    My first full campy bike- a '71 Gitane Super Corsa- never appreciated it then and most of the campy ended up on the Colnago frame I bought a couple of years after and then wrapped around the front end of a Chevy in 1978- but I sold the gitane frame sometime about '75.

    and then-

    the 1974 Silver Paramount track bike my parents gave me for my 21st birthday- The great low drop steel bars didn't last a year before I wrapped them around a steel fence support at the Northbrook velodrome, in "the biggest pile-up anybody there had ever seen" I'd got caught up in, and I was with a frat brother who was also injured, so I ended up having to drive the 300 miles home all scarred up-

    Here we are about 1980-

    I sold it on consignment in a bike shop in Torrance in 1984 when I retired and knew I'd probably never hang onto it trying to live in L.A.

    Not a bike, but had to sell this '88 Festiva a couple of summers ago when moving to Florida- 275,000 miles PLUS- and the most fun car to drive- the best maintenance free car I'd ever owned. The van I chose to take with me instead now has tranny troubles, but the '96 Aspire is still going strong.

    I bought this for $700 in L.A. back in 1997 with 175,00 miles and drove it over another 100k with no major repairs or rebuild- still started right up when I had to let it go quickly for a mere $300- for some reason, the guy hasn't ever transferred the title.

    We have had one of those^^ in the familiy for about 20 years. My father currently has it and I think it is his favorite car ever.

    The bright yellow 71 Schwinn Speedster I rode to high school, nothing special, but a tough and endlessly dependable old bike.
