Same '71 Paramount, ever closer to "finished."

Here's the Blue Crew...


1959 Norman of England, badged as Western Flyer, but seat tube graphics have the "Norman Seal of Quality," and the down tube has the Norman of England name.


1946 Hobbs of Barbican


1981 Holdsworth Professional (sadly, sold)


Nearly mint Shogun Sports Touring I sourced and cleaned up for my nephew.


1985 Shogun 2000, which I sold to help pay for my....


Boulder Brevet, back in 2012. Hmmm... when does this one qualify as "vintage?" My ride buddies seem to think anything older than twelve months counts.


ca. 1981-ish Bob Jackson, which I hated to part with but it was just a little too small.

One of my favorite bikes is my mid 70s Sekine SHS 271. It is pretty much all original. I actually like the turkey levers and rat trap pedals as this is what I had on the bike I used in high school.

Well, I think this is the only new Blue this year. The NOS Y-Foil I found this winter.



This beauty came and went last year. 1986 Team Fuji:



And this one arrived recently and is still waiting it's turn to be built. Giordana Scorpius:
