Vintage everything I ride falls into that catagory
1982 ross eurotour 5 speed
!970 columbia rambler ballon tire
late 80's beach cruiser made in the U.S.A.
I have a german made bike that is disassembled to be painted the stumey-archer hub on it is a 56
And I just picked up a 1972 schwinn speedster 3-speed like new other than the tires show some dry rot this bike could pass for new It is raining to hard to get a good picture right now
I don't care for drop handlebars and the looks of most new bikes just don't excite me

Age unknown, so I'll call it Vintage (still currently made, though):


Actually, I've got a Free Spirit 3-speed that is "vintage" also, but no photos of it. And I can't ride it, either.

Gina's $40 1984 Bianchi
We dropped about $400 to fix it up a bit, Gears, rims and a few other things. She put about 10,000 miles on it before we bought her CF roadie. But no way will she give up the Bianchi!

I have a 1989 Schwinn World Sport waiting to be rebuilt into an around town bike. I also have a stock 1996 Specialized Stumpjumper that is in near mint condition. It was the last year they made steel stumpjumpers so I'm calling it vintage. I also had a '92 Bridgestone MB5, but I gave it away to someone who would ride it. One vintage steel mtb is a enough I guess.

1972 Schwinn Road Race Paramount

My Vintage ride is not in use, but maybe I'll have it road worthy soon.

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=421635

It's a 1972 Schwinn Road Race Paramount, I am the original owner. I rode it for 10 years. It then was repainted and rebuilt by the factory in Chicago in 1982. Only a 100 miles on the rebuild. I'm posting this for fun, its not for sale.

I worked at George Garner Cyclery of Northbrook, IL back in 1972. I was 16 years old and spent most on my income on the bike, $600. The last time I rode it, I was 25 years younger and 50 Lbs lighter!

I didn't get the Nishiki Olympic in the photo, so there's actually 12 bikes altogether.

All the bikes cost less than $1000 total.

Maybe it's just me, but I think 12 bikes is a nice round number, although I would add 2 more and have a nice even 2 week rotation, lol.

I've owned a vintage bike for a total of 4 days now, and already have a line on 2 more from good friends. Both are from people I have a real connection, with and would be something that I could never let go of if they do indeed end up here.

My wife had visible shudder when I used the terms "vintage" and "bicycle" in the same sentence. She has had a long standing and stalwart tolerance for a vintage motorcycle fetish of mine. She hasn't parked in the garage for years, and resigned herself to having a mere walk way through the bikes and parts.

I told her that with my declining back and knee issues, it might be time to drastically thin the herd of motorcycles, save for one or two that have some serious sentimental value. I have this emotional attachment problem that I hope to never lose, lol. She immediately realized that bicycles would be smaller than motorcycles, and figured they would probably be cheaper as well. This has some possibilities.......

I do wonder what the magic number will be when she figures out that smaller and cheaper translates to MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seem to have this obsessive compulsive disorder that requires an example of each model from specific years from a specific manufacturer with motorcycles. I hope it doesn't manifest itself with bicycles too, lol.
