1949 Maclean, original paint and pin striping. Neatest thing is it still has the original brass cycling club badge with the original owners name and address. I bought it from flipper, so technically 3 owners. I have most pretty much all of the period correct components to built it up properly. Nice thing about English bikes of this period is they would build them with whatever they could get their hands on. So no groups, or even specific counties of origin mattered.

This crap. 1968 or 1969 German made Sprinter 3 speed. It sits as a bare frame set now but I cannot get myself to get rid of it.

1976 Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2, Silver Mist paint. An example of a "Schwinn Approved" bike, so built in Japan when I was six years old!

I have a late 50s Claud Butler Jubilee I need to build up. I'll do a resto mod with some parts from the 50s but some from the 70s. I'm worried that once I build it, I'll need to find a road bike from the 40s . . .

Early 90s trek hybrid. It used to be a back up bike. Then it got delegated to a trainer bike.
And now it's a back-up trainer bike.

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

My oldest complete bike is this 1956 Royal Nord President (made in Belgium). There is a loop frame 1946 Cleveland Welding Company Roadmaster skip tooth waiting in pieces.
