Cream panels probably don't count but here's my 'new lugged steel'.

Well, the month is still young so I guess I can add the newest member of my stable. A 1992 Giordana Polaris.




Dura Ace/Mavic wheels that came with it.



Considering running some Fulcrum Racing 3's on it.


I forgot to put this one up originally also.




My first 650b conversion. For those days I just need a plush ride.

My two summertime rides are black, and dark, chocolate brown. They fit my personality. One of them has red bar tape though.

My Maza. I'm the original owner. It's been through 6,8,9 and 10 speeds and has over 78,000 miles on it (still going). I believe this is from it's 9 speed days.

Do I get extra credit for having a pic of me riding it? BTW: The pic is old. I had hair.

I have multiple colored bikes.
Spent a couple hours yesterday in the vintage biike room organizing, planning, etc.

Besides, this thread needs a BUMP.

Nice. I was hoping someone had a Mondia to show off. I'm not certain but I believe these were the first bikes with a 'fade' paint job. This one is subtle compared to some. I had a Mondia once that someone had repainted in blue Imron because the paint was too much for their American eyes of the time.
