Not for me! I'd mug you for your 1955 Raleigh Lenton "Reg Harris Road Model." No hesitation! No, really.

I would never steal a bike, and I found this pic on another website, but I do think it's just about the most beautiful bike I've ever seen. In fact, it goes beyond that......it just seems the very definition of "badass vintage racing bike" to me:

BigBossMan's De Rosa. there is a big problem with this though, as I recall BBM understands what a 155 grain swallowtail means in terms of ballistics for a matchgrade .308

Bahhh - a non-red De Rosa Primato is like having a non-red Ferrari. Sure - it's still a Primato (barely), but you have to wonder why they can afford the Primato and not a paint job

I swiped Jan's Look Equipe a few months ago, and my gf & I have been luxuriantly, tantalizingly building it up.
I feel guilty about getting it for such a good price, since I lost an auction for this bike in my size back in '05 or '07 by more than twice his price.
It's got a silver Thomson stem on it now, and I've been vacillating between this yellow seatbag and an identical red one.



Now if I can just swipe someone's lighter, stronger motor, I'll be in business.

But if he sold it to me, I'd louse it up somehow, at which point it'd become MY BIKE. Bleh.

So far, the only bike I coveted on the forums was parted out.

After you cut through the door and bypassed the alarm (without waking me) you'd still have to get through Rusty...

If I were to swipe a bike from a fellow forumite, it would need to meet several criteria.

1) Original (not refinished)
2) Rare
3) IGH equipped
4) Comfortable on long rides
5) English

With that said, I think I already "swiped" the bike that meets all of these criteria.

This thread is not fair.

far to many bikes that some one on this thread owns that I really like.

Scoppers Paramount, DD' everything, BG has some really nice stuff, and we won't speak of the teraplane!

To many to pick from!
