Hello to fellow enthusiasts...

I've been asked to introduce myself.....I am an architect in portland and back "in the day" ( in the 70's while in my 20's) I did a little racing while residing in Boulder,Co. I've always loved the sport and vowed when I was able I would own one of the classic road racing machines that I could not afford "in the day". Well frankly that has gotten out of control! I would assume given this is about bikes the steeds one owns would be of interest to readers? That said I have the following stable (of which, will soon be thinned out per my wife).

2007 Colnago C50 (this stays)
84 masi prestige ( a little rough, my rain bike, I live in Portland, Or)
87 Pinarello Chromonero (an 8 out of 10)
Colnago Master (an 8 out of 10)
Merckx Molteni (the reproduction circa 1994, 9 out of 10)
A show worthy Colnago Arabesque w/ 50 Campy Anniversary Gruppo ( 10 out of 10, a masterpiece)

As I said I've gotten out of control.

Nice to meet all of you.....

You probably have already tried, but, any chance on converting you wife to cycling? Then you can keep your bikes.
