Even if Tourmalets were low on the Lemond food chain, they are really great bikes. I've owned and ridden one since '97.

The green Schwinn cruiser looks very nice to me. I would never buy/ride it but it looks like a nice version of its type. It must be a reproduction, right??? Because, otherwise,...!!!

With some tweaks, the green three speed could easily get me back and forth to work.

The green Phantom bike is indeed a 2004 reproduction. Theyíre asking $420 which I thought was good, considering they went for, what, $3,400 new?

That green Vista is just an old Roadmaster, but it speaks to me. Iíve always loved that type of bike! I think it was $60.

The LeMond is intriguing, at $140. It has the indexed brake lever shifters and Mavic rims, although it was missing the seat/post, but most people replace those anyway. For some reason it was covered with black smudges or scuffs. Looks like they might be able to be mostly polished off without harming the finish. Hard to tell.

Some nice looking bikes there. 🙂 On topic, I saw a Bianchi Forte lugged MTB recently, in a junk store. I'm not sure of the year, but late-80s or early-90s, for sure. I'm pretty sure I'll look into it better soon. 😉
There was also an old silver Gitane there, buried under a bunch of Huffy & Roadmaster bikes. I swore off of French bikes long ago, so didn't try unburying it. 😁😉
