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.

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!


My mountain bike (I didn't have a pic of my bike, but this is the one)


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.
