I guess I can add in the latest additions to the stable.

I just picked up this Chambery and am still sorting it out.

Then there's this Evans that I still don't know a lot about. Picked it up from a former 3 time winner of the RAAM.

This Davidson has become a favorite ride since last year due to how fast and fun it is to ride.

This came and went last year. Wonderful bike in beautiful condition but nothing made it stand out in my stable so I moved it on to another, very happy, rider. Sorta miss this though....

Then there's this Lemond, Got it last winter, put a ton of money into it to make it a "light" climbing bike with a nice triple. But.....I just don't like the ride at all. Gonna tweak on it a bit and if I still don't like it I'm going to sell it for a loss. First Lemond that hasn't blown me away.

Steel is real...and comfy.

Only have the one...

I couldn't resist. This is a 2018 version of my 1975 club jersey, that popped up on ebay. I didn't realize they were so similar. My bike in 1975 was green.
I used to think these were too garish, but not any more...

RD wire clipped after adjusted...The Spinacci are period correct, and used in the peleton at the time. I had them, I mounted them. I don't use them, they're just there.😊 Has a Concor "America" saddle on it now.

One year later, still a great thread. I really enjoyed looking at everyone's pictures, with some common and some very uncommon machines.

How about red with white? ... or was that white with red?

To get back on topic, starting chronologically, my 1965 Swiss made Tigra with fade paint. I was looking for a Mondia when I found this bike.

1971 all original Hetchins Italia in celeste and red.

1973 Holdsworth Competetizone in Team Kit.

All original 1973 Raleigh RRA barn bike. I always like the mustard and white paint.

1980 Motobecane Team Champion frame with a custom respray.

1989 Peugeot Chorus 753 frame.

Don't believe everything you think! History is written by those who weren't there....

Chas. ;-)
