1984 Ritchey Mt. Tam (I no longer own this one)

More pics here:

1984 Fisher Everest (I no longer own this one either)

More pics here:

I sold them to pay some bills and buy this '86 Ritchey Commando (it basically was a free bike, or so I rationalized to my wife):

More pics here:

I also have a pretty nice '87 Schwinn Cimarron that I recently took delivery of, but I haven't cleaned it up to take any pics of it. The tubing is ovalized and fillet-brazed at the headtube and lugged at the other junctures. Shimano XT components. Here is a quick and dirty that I just snapped:

More (and better) pics here:

The other oldie is a '91 Trek 990 (sorry -- no pics), but here is what it basically looks like. Lugged, True Temper OX, Shimano XT. I have a different rigid fork and different (silver) rings on it.

Oh, and an NOS '87 Schwinn High Sierra frame built into a single speed townie (no pics of that right now either). It fillet-brazed at the front like the Cimarron, but TIG'd elsewhere instead of lugged.

Oh, wait -- an '84 Bridgestone MB-3.

I think that's it ...
