@Vonruden, I couldn't see selling any of those either.


My keepers:

'86 LOOK Equipe/Bernard Hinault (753r) - I've had this bike since I was a teenager. Rides like a dream. Tons of nostalgia.

'89 Parkpre Team Road - This was my teenage team-issue race bike. Again, lots of nostalgia.

'90 Parkpre Team MTB - Team MTB I've had since I was a teenager. (No photo)

'90 Merlin - The bike I wanted as a teenager, though couldn't afford on e at the time. I was finally able to find one in my size a few years ago,, and it lived up to my expectations. I'm not going to let this one go.

'73 Speedwell Titalite - The garage queen. I don't ride this one much, but I love to look at it.

'72 Cilo Pacer - This is my commuter, errand, go-anywhere, do-anything, gravel, Eroica, toss-it-in-the-trunk, take-the-family-out bike. This bike fits and rides wonderfully. I've upgraded the parts over time, but it remains a quintessential C&V bike.

'85 De Rosa Professional - My only Italian, and my only bike built with a modern drivetrain. Rides nice, too.
