Treasures in the attic...

Getting excited about this winter...accessing our Christmas decorations in the attic reminded me of the rest of my collection...already brought down my purple Raleigh Competition and have refinished the rebuild/build...finished up with new tires and tubes today...needs my final fit and service...quick ride, quick being the word...old world cool!
Some of these bicycles were totally redone before going upstairs, so gonna go for a fun build...prob the Moto Le Champion up front...last owner was a professor who rode the bike around Boston, back and forth to a University, not sure which one...
The grody brown bike without wheels has a full, ‘cept for hubs of course, Superb group for some of my very patient future projects...



Think I’m gonna stay with the tubulars on this...does Continental make gator hardshell tubulars...

The grody brown parts bike and a couple of my C’dales when I want/need to go fast!

So much nice right here!

I spy a few treasures up there, for sure. Reminds me of an old Aerosmith album...

The last time I looked in my attic all I saw were a bunch of empty moving boxes.

Starting to remember what is up here...


A 1000, an 1100, and a 1400 Treks, my beautiful red C’dale ST600, and a Fuji Del Rey Silver Streak...there is a gorgeous early Nashbar Tourer with the most amazing, unexpected ride! Somebody here knows what I am talking about!

You guys with the big bike and parts collections always make me feel less guilty about hoarding.
