Diverse Bicycle Collections

I realize many of us are particularly fond of one brand of bike (Robbie's Centurions), or bikes made in a certain country (my Japanese collections, or PastorBob's Schwinns). Let's see some pics (or lists) of those who have a collection that has a good mix of brands and countries of manufacture.

For me, I have mostly Japanese (Fuji, Nishiki, Panasonic, Schwinnasonic), but I do have a Raleigh Sportif (built by Giant in Taiwan) and an early '70s Gitane Tour de France in frame form, but will soon attempt a semi-correct restore to a SS.

Let's get things rolling here!

My small collection includes:
Panasonic TE2- Campy Victory
Look Bernard Hinault- Campy C-record
Guerciotti- Campy Athena
Panasonic DX4000- Shimano 600EX
Vista Aero Course- Suntour,Diacompe & Sugino
Panasonic DX2000- Shimano Altus & Diacompe
Cannondale Team Comp- Ofmega

Sort of a diverse collection. Probably the only things in common is the lack of index shifting.

Raleigh (UK), a roadster
Raleigh (US/Taiwan), a road bike
Nishiki (Japan), a road bike
Schwinn (US/Taiwan), road bike/future fixie?
Nishiki (US), a hybrid

Although I have two pairs of bikes that share brand names, in both cases the bikes are really made by different companies. I have a Nottingham Raleigh, and a Raleigh USA (produced by Huffy with Taiwanese parts). I have a Kawamura Nishiki made in Japan and a Derby Nishiki made in Kent, WA.

Let's see, most of mine tend to be Japanese but in the past year or so it's diversified globally:

1972 Fuji Finest (work in progress). Japan
1973 Peugeot PX-10 (work in progress). French
1973 Atala Record Competition (work in progress). Italy
1973 Raleigh Competition. British
1973 Raleigh Super Course. British
1973 Fuji Special Road Racer. Japan
1970's Lambert Reg Harris (work in progress) British
1970's Lambert/Viscount. British
1974 Mirella Touring. Italy
1976 Fuji Finest. Japan
1976 Fuji America. Japan
1978 Fuji S10-S. Japan
1979 Fuji Royale. Japan. This was bought as a teenager, my first Fuji
1980 Fuji America. Japan
1981 Fuji S12-S. Japan. On it's way to Neal Lerner
1981 Fuji Cambridge VI. Japan
1981 Fuji Professional. Japan
1983 Fuji Opus III. Japan
1984 Nishiki Cresta Touring. Japan
1985 Fuji Club. Japan

Recently departed:

1983 Trek 500. US
1985 Fuji Sagres. Japan
1988 Nishiki Pinnacle MTB. Japan

Currently on (almost) permanent loan:

Late '80's early '90's Ciocc. Italian
Early '90's Yeti MTB. U.S.

I've been really into Mieles lately, I just picked up two for real cheap, both mid eighties, a Gara and a Lupa made in Canada. My only "new" bike in over thirty years, a 2007 Rivendell Bleriot. It's small, nimble, 650B, it's a nice tool in the box of bikes.

Cool thread, thanks.

Hey Luker, how's it going?

Hee Hee,
All that Mrs Bigwoo gives me is the study and and the basement. Bikes are NOT allowed anywhere else in the house....

Come on you guys; I can see some of the diversity in your lists but this thread is no fun without photos!

I was ready to cry uncle at picture 20.

I'm lacking a trike, a tandem, a recumbent, an ordinary, a BMX, a folder, a legitimate cruiser and a unicycle (which I do hope to have soon). Then I need French, Italian, German, Mexican and Chinese.

What I do have (counting my son's and wife's):

1939 Raleigh Gazelle (ladies')
1952 J.A. Holland
1970 Raleigh Professional
1972 Fuji Finest
1974 Raleigh Superbe
197? Vista ladies'
1978 Raleigh Super Course
1978 Raleigh Team Professional
1984 Trek 760
1986 Schwinn Traveler
1994 Trek 830
1996 Trek 850? (son's)
2008 Surly Long Haul Trucker

I figure a Follis tandem, a German trike, a Chinese recumbent and I'm almost in divorce court.

Now we know what a "BigWoo" is; A basement full of bikes (at least this is what Mrs BigWoo calls it)!

I knew you had more then a few, but I never dreamed you were competing with cudak888.

D'Ohh!
I'm sorry CB400Bill,
I didn't know that it slowed things down that much. Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa (In the back of my mind I'm always afraid that EastHill will give me demerit points)

Hey PB! Great to hear from you!

I'm definitely not competing w/ Kurt; His collection has a lot more class than mine. I am the meat and potatoes to his Lobster and NY Strip... I may have him on vintage GT BMX, but that's about it.....

dunno if my collection would be considered diverse or just a whole lotta variations on the same theme-


80 DeRosa Professional(Columbus SL, lugged)/Campagnolo SR/NR


86 Vitus/Bador(Vitus Duralinox aluminum,bonded)/Mavic SSC-Stronglight


82 Cambio Rino(Faulk,lugged)/Rino Crono


81 Andre Bertin(Reynolds 531 Superlegger,lugged)/Shimano DA EX


02 Cinelli Aliante Muscle(Columbus XLR8R aluminum,welded, Columbus Muscle carbon fork,seat & chainstays)/Campagnolo 10 spd Chorus


01 Cinelli/Losa Nuovo Supercorsa (Columbus UltraFoco, fillet brazed)/Campagnolo 10 spd Chorus


06 Bianchi Milano(aluminum,welded)/Shimano Nexxus 8 spd


80 Peugeot U09(Peugeot carbolite steampipe,lugged) Simplex/Stronglight


then there's more of the same-

another welded & bonded aluminum/carbon Cinelli Aliante(columbus airplane)/Campagnolo 10 spd Centaur


your basic welded aluminum Colnago Asso(Columbus Altec2)/campagnolo 10spd Centaur
