Bicycle poker - who wants to play?

Rules:

1. Post pic(s) of your same model bike(s). It has to be your bike(s). Of course they have to either classic or vintage. First player starts the bidding at 1 bike. I'll start:

I've got one Centurion Pro Tour



2. Next player has to beat my hand. In this case it has to be either a more rare bike, or you can bid two bikes of the same model (doesn't have to be same as mine). Obviously we'll get into arguments if you're claiming yours is rarer or not, but while we're arguing, someone can swoop in and bid a higher number of same model.

For example, I'm outbidding my Centurion Pro Tour with a Peugeot PH-60:


3. Don't skip numbers, for example, you may have 10 Schwinn Paramounts, don't bid right after someone bids 3 Peugeot PX10's. Hold onto that hand.
4. Yes, the rules have some ambiguity built in - same model, same year, or just same model? What about custom builds that don't have a model? Say you have 6 Davidson's, but two are racing, three are touring, one is Ti? Let's say that anything from the same custom builder counts as the same suit, but production bikes have to be same model.

I'd just like to smoke out who has a big collection of the same bike - you know who you are! And no fair cheating, looking over someone's shoulder and seeing their cards.

Get your poker faces on, deck has been shuffled, who wants to play?

OK, three of a kind Chicago Paramounts, a 1972, 1973, and a 1974, in order of year (full disclosure, I have a fourth one, a 1974 track bike, but its only a frameset).

^ I’d say that’s, as a minimum, a rule violation on the CF being the same model as the others...it’s not even the same company. Clever using the 3 queens/king, but I’d say they’d have to be all the same model of Paramount.

If we’re granting 4 of the same model, the Merz hand is still on top.

I’m about to drop a hand that will require a great degree of interpretation, but...I think it potentially beats the Merz hand if using a very liberal interpretation...

So...one could argue that all 4 of these are the same builder...and they’re definitely of a kind:

S&S coupled Spectrum

TK built Ross

Tom Kellogg Branded frame

and a Merlin...which is the one that will kick off debate.

Nice (try)!

Brothers and sista's of a different Father/Mother/petri dish, same tree almost.

Maybe a straight but not a flush.

Two pair.

Two 1937 CCM Road Racers. One was complete then refurbished, the other was found as frame and fork, NOS in an old shop.

Two Canadian Raleigh Superbes, same colour, different year hubs ('57-'58) but the frames only 16 serial numbers apart. Siblings.

This game is too rich for my blood.
Besides, any female with just one Bob Jackson or Jack Taylor wins this game.
Bon Scott knew this.

I think a hand that's five Raleighs won't cut it in this competition (though 5 Competitions would be a different story).
