My companion since 1992. There are a pair of BSOs lying around, but I don't count them.

My main ride is the S-10S that I bought new in '76.

For trips to the corner store(s) and not ridden more than three miles at a time I have a couple of garbage-picked MTBs...

It is indeed a Raleigh Record. I don't know the year but 70's would be likely.

All that stuff was displayed by BF member top506 from Maine. He had several bikes, including a marvelous Shogun complete and ready to ride. It was my size too, so I took it for a spin around the parking lot. But I don't need another bike! I picked up the Ironman frame because I like working on projects. It was abused already and thus very cheap. Otherwise I'd have no interest in it except that it will become a bike very different from everything else in my fleet.

This is my weekend ride.

This is an old picture of my weekday/after-work ride/night ride/back-up bike. It keeps going and going and going...
I no longer use the frame bag, and the pump now resides in a bottle-cage mount on the down tube.

Just kidding guys, i'm almost 69 and still going strong just like you. I'm really enjoying all the bikes. It sure would be nice to have some of those vintage rides. I'm watching with envy. Keep um coming. Jim

Here are my old guy bikes....

Specialized Roubaix -

Salsa Vaya Touring/commuter -
I've ridden this bike in several states and if I had to pick one bike, this would be the one!
http://www.watsonfx.com/gap40.jpg

My mountain bike (I didn't have a pic of my bike, but this is the one)
http://www.watsonfx.com/deluxe.jpg

and last but not least my 85 year old 1928 Elgin Single/Fixie. This bike is a blast to ride and is super quick. I found it hanging on the wall in a buddy's garage and decided it needed to be ridden again.
