The newest bike I ride is about 15 years old and my oldest is 38 years old.

Not tired of seeing your bike pictures!

I believe that a real bike person never gets tired of looking at bike photos more than once. I think it's great that you love to show off your bike.

Steel bike weight

I fully agree with everything SteelThisBike had to say. There is a certain beauty in keeping a vintage bike original. As for weight I think it is best for the rider to lose weight and/or build up...

That old parked car

If you no longer are going to use a car, I would not look to find some secondary use for it. When a car sits, the seals start leaking, the tires go flat, rodents start making a home out of it and...

I agree with you and Jon T. If you want that stock orginal look I believe to go with what came on the bike from the factory. I practice what I preach when it comes to my 1981 Schwinn Super Sport. I...
