I guess it's time for the obligatory bike pr0n!
The bike I've been riding is an '87 Schwinn High Sierra. I've had it since 1991, but I've barely ridden it. I've always loved the way it looked, but I've not really been in the position to conveniently ride to school or work.
We also have 2 old bikes that used to belong to my sister- my wife has been riding this late 80s/early 90s Trek 820.
Our daughter got too big for her little girl's bike, and my sister's OLD 10 speed was still at my parents' house so we sort of fixed that up for her. She doesn't like riding all that much, but our son has really been digging this bike. It's an early/mid 80s Schwinn World Sport.
I think it's interesting that he really likes that bike- when I was a kid there was a HUGE stigma around a boy riding a "girl's" bike. I don't know if he likes that it's kind of a "road" bike or he just doesn't like mine...
