1977 Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2

Rides very nice on the Masters. I've since removed the light and replaced the saddle with something more modern.

I just got this Specialized Pro. Cleaned it up today and am surprised at how good the condition is. The 600 eight speed group is excellent...



And my all chrome Torpado Luxe, a favorite in my little stable...

1952 EA Boult, built at the time it was transitioning to the ownership of one of the employees, Ernie Witcomb.
It was returned to its original colour scheme and design under the guidance of its original owner.
The project was documented.

Here's my early '90's Rocky Mountain Stratos. It was a great winter ride until it succumbed to a terminally seized bottom bracket.

Ross mt hood i picked up on here late last fall. Turned it into an around the neighborhood single speed thats a blast. 2.35" baloon tires and some bullmoose bars gave it the exact look i wanted.

I could have played at one time, but no longer. Had an English chrome-plated Reynolds 531-framed Meteor and a polished Giant ATX 890 hardtail with a polished Girvin fork. And maybe this one would have qualified, a Flandria 500A that was metallic red on one side but had sun-faded to its silver base coat on the other.

Bike is both silver and the frame/fork is chrome plated under the paint. With polished chrome on the head tube lugs, drop outs, dual plate fork lug and tops of the chain stays.
