Personally I got the bike I was drooling about. In hindsight I maybe should have spent more time looking for King Turquoise but eh White Ind are nice; this has me not caring about other bikes for the moment.

Interesting bit of trivia. The C64 is made in the personal workshop of Ernesto Colnago at his home.

In my case it is a trike. It would be the Azub TiFly 26. It has titanium spring front suspension, and suspension in the rear. At the present time anyway to my mind it is the Cadillac of trikes. Any really generous person want to buy one for me??

My childhood friend had a red Apple Krate. I drooled over it. I got to ride it between 1968-70. It was the time my friendsí older brothers were buying Cudas, Roadrunners, Dusters, Chargers, GTOs. They had stick shifts modified with aftermarket bang shifters. I got to ride in those cars and having a stick shift seemed like it made the car go faster! I still remember the feeling of peddling that Apple Krate and shifting through the gears!

Just a little tease from Chris Bishiop will get the salivary glands a workin'

Also probably at least 80% of Firefly titanium bicycles also make the cut.

Elves Vanyar, a bike seemingly only sold in China, and possibly AliExpress. As a Tolkien fan, how can I refuse this?

I had the Green "Pea Picker". Sold it to a friend of the family for their kid for $50 in the late 80s. I still kick myself in the @ss for that.

Yeah, I'm really wanting an offroad capable trike. I like the Azub models, but I'm leaning towards the Hase (Cross) so I can get my wife a Hase and use the optional tandem feature.

I had one of Krates with rams horn handle bars. My grandparents lived next door to a bike shop when I was growing up. Would spend all my time there when I went to their house

What can I say.... I LOVE the bikes from the '70s!!!

Candy-painted frame with chrome 'socks' front and rear. That means a fully chromed frame, but socks polished. The rest of the frame can be painted over for smoothness with a paint before the finish coat/clearcoat or tinted clearcoat so that the candy color shines!!!!!
Nice detailed frame lugs (lug-lining paint is fine) LUGGED is primary!!!!
Polished components (brakes, crank, stem, seatpost, etc)
Polished rims without gaudy decals.
Stainless butted spokes.
High-flange polished hubs...
Leather saddle (in appropriate color) with matching bar tape.
Brake/shifter housing can be either matching frame color or highlighting decal/lettering, or matching saddle/bar tape...
NON-colored tires (gumwalls or black only, thankyouverymuch) although I did break from that 'rule' for the graywalls on my steel gray Miyata 710.... Subtle, and NOT attention-grabbing!

Beyond that, not much...

My primary road-ridden bikes will always have SunTour barcons because that's what I've ridden for 45 years. I HATE reaching anywhere off the bars to shift, and I never ride on the hoods.

Pedals? Toeclips/straps or platforms. No 'clipping in' for me because I want to wear any shoes/sandals/flip-flops/boots!!!

Well, that's MY 'Drool list'... Yours may vary!!!! That's why bikes differ!!!

I have seen those velomobiles race at criteriums, and they are seriously fast over most crit courses.

I owned one of these...that shifter was a dangerous positioning....

For a recent bike, the Bianchi Eroica


https://www.bianchi.com/bike/campagnolo-10sp-compact/

For a classic, a mint Peugeot PX10E early 70s, with Stronglight 93 crank, in white.

Because they are things of classic beauty.

However, I am totally satisfied with my Bianchi Volpe

Lots of nice bike pictures. I think a bike made from chocolate, chocolate ganache with fondant would make me drool.

For me, it would be a ti lugged carbon Firefly with Rolf Prima wheelset, no paint on frame, pink accent color, all pink to be Cerakote to match pink accents on hubs.
