A couple of ghost bikes created a few days ago and in the background my '76 Viscount which just received new bottom bracket bearings.

The sobering story is the purpose of the ghost bikes. Ride safe all.

I see a few in Ivory, so I'll add my 82 Lotus Classique. It has a nice ride, so was planning a complete restore. But after fixing all the rusty spots/chips and a wax, decided to just ride it as is while I watch for a longer stem. Don

My white Paramount, and a very nicely-maintained ghost bike, sniffing each other's butts, on Old Creek Road near Morro Bay California last weekend. I can tell the victim was well-loved, and is undoubtedly missed.

Grief aside, we have had the most fantastic winter for riding I have seen in an entire lifetime of living in the Golden State. There has yet to be a single day this fall and winter when the riding conditions were not superb (and mostly warm). The smoke was a little bad at times during October, but it's been a great year to hit the hills during our so-called cool months. I have yet to wear even leg warmers all this year.

A Grand Prix mixte I built up for my sister as a surprise Christmas gift. Couldn't actually see her for Christmas so on a November visit I left it with my other sister who lives much nearer (I'm a few states to the west). The intended recipient finally got it this weekend, was duly surprised and I understand it went over well. I have this in a separate post on my experience removing a dent from the headtube. Fun!

Looks like I don't need to. Going back through older posts, I am thinking that green is the color of March.

Had to finish up my longest-running small project before the month was over thanks to this thread. I have four celebrants.

Shadowfax still needs the proper bar-end plug, but it's close enough for this thread. Repainted 1970 Raleigh Professional. Paint by the one-time denizen of C&V, Dr. Deltron.



My "war horse", who I just noticed is getting to be in need of a good overall cleaning and refreshing - 1972 Fuji Finest



My "Horse with no name" (or at least no visible serial number), 197x Raleigh Grand Sports



And finally, the "baby" of the fleet, a 2000 Bob Jackson "Arrowhead". I intend to change that hideous bar tape before winter is through.
