853 or Rocky Mountain could easily get you there, add them together=no brainer.

I would say for me there's been two, mainly these, although some others get attention but these two by far

1. 1992 Klein Pinnacle in Backfire paint scheme

2. 1987 Centurion Ironman Expert

Those stokers can be the real brains of the operation.

This one. 1969 Raleigh Pro Mark 1, white "one year only" model. Far better than new repaint from CycleArt.



Another Washington collector of some note has a "Geoffrey Butler" that is almost identical to this bike.

Had to take this one on the group ride for a few weeks


I think most people were surprised I was able to keep up! You don't see many old bikes around here, not least on fast paceline rides.

Definitely my ANT. I'm pretty sure most people think it's a lot older than it is

The thread started in 2013, brought back to live in 2019 which normally drives me crazy. Yet, this one was one of the more enjoyable threads to peruse on a early Easter Monday morning. First time seeing this thread and loved the bikes people posted. So to everyone who posted a big thank you. Keep them coming.
