I've went ant lost my mind. I've now started collecting vintage bikes. Well I swear I'm going to stop at 3. I don't have the room. And it's not like these are $20 apiece. I can't afford to run in the vintage bike crowd,,,lol.

Let's see what you've got. I'll start.

You guys all ready seen my 60's Sears Spaceliner.

And last but not least is this sweet 1964 Schwinn. It has a 2 speed kick back rear hub. A really cool feature.

I like vintage bikes too. I like old cruisers and I like old English three speeds. Here is a Blue Horse bike that was a prize won(not by me) by saving proofs of purchases from school supplies. 20191202_094736 (1).jpg 
And here is a Rudge three speed I picked up this past weekend.

We were heading out for a one-hundred-mile day from Danny's parents' house in Damascus, OR to Kaneeta hot springs on the Warm Springs res--the other side of the Cascade mountains.

It's in this thread because that's my 1960 Schwinn Paramount P51--which I still have in pieces in a box. A good project to get back to someday!

Some cool vintage bikes shown here. I have bought and sold a few over the years, but never took to collecting them. Suitcase stoves already take up too much room.

No way am I collecting bicycles. Here's my one pedal ride:
IMG_20200721_192321774.jpg 
1960 Schwinn Tiger, Sturmey-Archer 3 speed, handbrakes. I know it looks rough, but I've rebuilt all the bearings and had the wheels spoked and it rides like a dream. And, yes, I put all those baskets on because I carry stuff. I'm trying to build a lighting system, hence all the wires.

My Higgins Colorflow. Yeah...yeah...I know the tires are still flat but at least I got it out of the backroom!  lol
The PO did the restoration. They had a his and hers version that they rode wheeling around campgrounds. The speedo was reset to zero when the resto was finished and I got it with 20 miles on it about 10 years ago. I got 22.7 on it now. Wish I would of also bought the lady's one.

Some of you guys are obviously knowledgeable about old bicycles too. I've always wondered, why were those English three-speeds common in the USA in the sixties? They were good bikes, I'm just curious.

Three speeds, especially English made ones were popular because they are dependable,good riding bikes. I have a bunch of them in my collection. The hubs are a little complicated for the average person to overhaul, but they seldom need internal repairs. One nice thing about the English hubs is that they have the date of manufacture on the shell so you can determine the age of the bike. Raleighs are pretty much the top quality brand of English bikes and Raleigh bought up most of their competition of the years.

Do 1980s dirt bikes count?!  This SE Bronco was a present In 2nd grade from my parents in 1985.  It’s original except for the chain, tires, tubes, and grips.  


I lived on that bike from spring ‘85 until the fall of ‘93 when I got my learners permit.  I salvaged it from Dad’s shed and brought it back to life for my 2nd grader.

The name is misleading but http://www.ratrodbikes.com is an interesting site that covers the bike hobby well, if anyone cares to check it out.

We could never afford nice bikes when we were growing up.  I had beaters and frankenbikes,  painted with a brush and sometimes with a banana seat. LOL 

Not the best pic but I do have a very nice pair mid of mid 70's USA Schwinn Collegiate bikes, his and hers for my wife and I.  Photo taken at the Fairgrounds where the Charlotte MI ICCC was held in 2014.

I was always led to believe that Raleighs were department store junk bikes.

I've passed lots of them at flea markets and yard sales and have never given them a second look.

Yeah, replica... the stem, handle bars, and head tube are modern. Replicas normally go for about 3x that $$.

I would love to get my hands on one.

If we’re getting into the ‘00’s, here’s my 2009 Scott SUB10.  I have more miles on it this year(1500 so far) than any year since our first child came.  

That’s the Mississippi River behind it at Dubuque, IA.
