My 1983 Trek 760 with a few upgraded Campy parts that I've owned since 1983.


The early 90's De Rosa SLX that I've dialed back with some late 80's Campy C-Record parts. I picked it up off Craigslist. It was sold 90% complete and I completed it the way I wanted it. I have C-Record Aero pedals ready to install on it.


A 2009 Custom Waterford 22 Series single-speed that I picked up off EBay last year to celebrate my 60th birthday.......but I forgot that I had picked up the 90's De Rosa earlier in the year to celebrate my 60th. LOL.

Early '60's P.Peschi - it gets ridden a few times a year and always a nice ride. Would like to go from the current 25mm tubulars to 30 mm one day just to make it that much more comfortable.

Tropical Bluebird


This is one of the bikes I rescued from the recyclers in Toronto.
If I didn't purchase it for $15 it would have likely been shipped to Africa.
It still made it to a warm place; Jamaica, my winter home.
It's really "blue ish" 😎

That Peschi is beautiful! I'm envious.

My custom Curtlo Soft-tail, had it since 2009. I wanted a 650b mtb but the off the rack choices were scarce. This was back when there were only a couple choices in tires and forks. I love the way this bike handles, though even with the 1" of rear travel, it kinda beats me up these days. I don't ride it as often as I used to which is a shame, it's a great little bike.
