Finally found a picture of mine on my phone:

Pilen Lyx - a Swedish-made city bike. Steel, heavy, and the most comfortable thing I've ever ridden.

Great bike! My wife rides a Lexa SL (or SLX?...can't remember) - test rode a bunch of different bikes across several brands, and when she came riding back to the shop with an ear-to-ear grin on her face, I knew she'd found "the one."

Oops! I got so excited I forgot to mention a few things I like about the Electra Townie. 7 Speeds on the right grip so easy, and I can See the gear number without my glasses The forward peddling is gentle on my back and the seat is too on my bum. The tires make for a smoother ride and the bars better than a mountain bike (Specialized I briefly had).

>> ChadA Do you two like your Electra's? The Amsterdam caught my eye at the dealer, but it was just a bit over budget for me.

>> rhinoWErX, I really like the look of those Priority('s). I never heard of them so I googled it right away. Hmm, maybe I should adopt one? It could happen!

KittySaz >> Love that second pic. Such a clever gal

Univega Yes!

I bought one in I think 1980. It was one of the metallic orange ones with the blue Univega lettering. It was my only vehicle for about a year. Great bike - thanks for reminding me... Good times

There's a great little Wikipedia article on Univega that I just read - you should check it out! The creator of that company has a pretty cool life story. Learned something new today!

Well; you asked. I built most of these from the frame up.
This is an abridged list. I still own only the last two bikes.
Diamondback Voyager – Stolen in 2014 – I still weep

Mongoose Zuma – I later added a stick shift before I had to sell to make space


1976 Ron Cooper –Did an MS-150 on her (with gears, not fixed)

1980? Trek – I busted a back wheel on it a few days before the MS-150 on Mill Ave in Tempe, AZ

1976 Western Flyer made in Tennessee, with 50cc China girl motor

KHS soft tail – great desert bike

Added electric kit to my wife’s old bike

Wow! This thread has even more great machines in it! How is everyone?

My kids have gotten to that age where I'd like to spend what time I can with them and so this year I've parked all the motorized two wheelers in favor of the slew of bicycles in the garage and shed.

Anyone besides me have a Bianchi Astrale with the factory Piaggio/Vespa stickers? The one I have is a blue (darker than Bianchi blue) mixte. Early to mid eighties I think they were made?

Three bikes. I've logged more time on them than the scooters this last couple of years. The roadie is a mid 80's Schwinn Circuit recently restored. The trail bike is an older Trek 4500 Alpha, and the one that gets the most time on the gravel roads of the Flint Hills is the Trek CX cross bike.

Nice Set up Tom. I rode just under twenty miles earlier today. It was drizzling on and off but the ride felt really good.

KHS has a nice line up of machines.

Brommie
Just added this to the stable today... 2015 Brompton "Black Edition" S2L in lime green. I know, I know...not ALL black (a la Henry Ford), but all of the usual parts that only come in silver on standard and/or custom Bromptons have been blacked out. Supposedly only 5000 worldwide, and that's it - not to be done again.

We'll see about that last part, but I don't really care - I didn't buy it for it's "limitedness". I bought it because I've been wanting a Brompton for a while, this one was on-hand at my local dealer (www.astreetbikenameddesire.com), and I got a great deal on it as a repeat customer of theirs.

So far I've only put about 5 miles on it, but it's great! Looking forward to the possibilities ahead...

What's wrong with this picture?
I thought I heard noises last night! So the New Kid on the block gets the Lift? While another Hangs On (10) and Two Standby?
Geez, I need a bigger garage!

It figures: Scratch a Vespa owner, reveal a serious bikie
Bicycles? There've been more than a few. Here's what's current:

IMG00028-20100702-1321.jpg
1985 Alex Moulton AM14S (Tiny Dancer II): 30 years old as of two months ago!

Grodbrk01.jpg
Geoffrey Butler (Goldenrod): Built up in 2010, replacing two stolen bikes.

CIMG4639.JPG
1977 Motobecane Grand Jubilee (FauxFix): Bought from client in 2010, converted to two-speed kick-back w/coaster brake (hence the nickname).

What a great thread. I love the photos of the old Stingrays, they bring back memories of the one I had in the 60's. Not many recumbents here so I'll add mine. I'm an avid cyclist/racer and a bikeaholic. We have 10 bikes in the garage, 7 are recumbents. Here are my two favorites

This is my Bachetta Aero:

And this is my carbon fiber land missile, a Velokraft VK2, at Hellyer Velodrome in San Jose, CA. It is wicked fast and incredibly comfortable.

I'm not much slimmer than when I started cycling but neither am I fatter and I'm a hell of a lot fitter.

I can't hear the word cork anymore, without thinking about the cork-soaker skit on SNL. That's all I'll say about that.....

My favorite bike is one that I have rebuilt, I bought it new in 1979. It's a Panasonic City Bike. I believe it to be one of the first hybrids that came out. At least one of the first I had ever seen, which is why I bought it. No it didn't come with stereo or speakers....
At the time, Panasonic was the biggest non-European bike brand in Europe. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures.

I do have a photo of my Novara cruiser which is REI's private label for bikes.

Here it is when I was in Denver working five years ago, on the trails at Cheery Creek Reservoir.
