Every bike you ever owned

If you already answered the "What's in your stable?" thread and still have time to kill, can you remember every bike you have ever had? Not counting childhood bikes just for getting to my friend's house down the street:

1988 Fuji Ace road bike, black/gold, steel with Suntour Blaze
1989 Centurion Ironman Master road bike, white/gray marble, steel with Shimano 600/Ultegra - hand-me-down when my dad built himself an Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra
1992 Trek 930 mountain bike, forest green, steel with Shimano Deore DX/LX
???? Gitane track bike, black, steel with mixed components - frame got Yakima'ed coming home from practice one night
1976 Schwinn Paramount track bike, champagne, lugged steel built up with Suntour Superbe Pro
1993 Trek 5500 road bike, violet/white, carbon fiber built up with Shimano Ultegra
1993 Cannondale track bike, light blue, aluminum with Suntour Superbe Pro
1993 Balance XR-450 mountain bike, dark purple, steel take-off frame built up with Shimano XT/XTR, Manitou 4 fork, and various anodized turquoise bits
1995 GT Edge road bike, polished, aluminum built up with Shimano Ultegra and various anodized blue bits
1996 Aplinestars RSA 940 downhill bike, polished, aluminum built up with Grip Shift and AC components
2002 Bianchi Veloce road bike, celeste, steel with Campagnolo Veloce
???? Litespeed Classic road bike, polished, titanium with Shimano Ultegra
???? Tsunami road bike, white/blue, scandium with Shimano Ultegra
1998 K2 Razorback mountain bike, red/blue/white, aluminum built up with Shimano Deore
2010 Specialized Allez Elite road bike, white/black, aluminum with Shimano 105
2006 Raleigh Pursuit tandem road bike, burgundy/black, aluminum with Shimano 105/LX
2018 Giant Defy Advanced 2 road bike, black/neon orange, carbon fiber with Shimano 105

I'm sure many of you will have a much longer list to remember.
It's like riding a bicycle

I can list every bike and trike I have owned, including those from my childhood. Maybe I will if I get enough time to kill.

...I don't really feel like I own them. They're mostly older steel frames, and now that I've restored them, they should outlive me. I'm more like a caretaker.

The tough ones to remember are the various hand-me-downs we had as kids. We lived near this much-larger family that had about eight kids, all of them older. We got ALL their old bikes, clothes, toys, shoes, etc...

26 in. Schwinn Paramount, '70s, silver, stolen
24.5 in Crescent, '70s,
Romana 300 (actually my father's but I raced it)
Romana 120 my training bike as an Intermediate
Raleigh 3-speed, became my paperboy bike
Red Schwinn with 20" wheels that I learned to ride on
The tricycle with the extra-big front wheel...

Hadn't thought about it really.
Do I count the 'zero bikes'?

just counted 30 in the garage and small storage. 2 belong to my son, 2 exclusively the wife's. Only 4 are not road worthy. There have been ~15 that got moved on to other owners (5 in one sale).

Then there are 4 zero bikes - sister, brother, daughter & friend houses - at homes I visit where I may need a bike that fits.
Riding is more fun than walking.
Roll on.
Clear your handlebars and your mind will follow.

Tough one -- if you look at my "current stable" list, its apparent i dont throw much out -- but i used to race track at a fairly competitive level and would go through bikes for that fairly rapidly - however, most of my road bikes i still have

But i'll try to

Childhood - not many bikes as i discovered motocross at age 10 and was done with bicycles for a while

Sears Stingray style bike
Team Murray BMX bike
Another department store BMX bike that was a Redline copy

1sr "adult bikes" - i sold the originals long ago, but have replacements in the same paint scheme in the shop now
Bridgestone MB-6
Marin Road Project

Then - in no particular order

Paramount Series 70 mountain bike - 1994
Paramount series 50 mtb
GT GTB track bike - 1999
Corima Cougar track bike - 1999
Bridgestone/Anchor track bike - 2002
Giant TCR Team road bike - 2002
3 Rensho funny bike (track)
Bianchi Pista
Miyata road fixie
Cannondale Synapse carbon
Trek 5900 Dura Ace
Pinarello Opera Dura Ace
Specialized S-Works Tarmac
Santa Cruz Superlight (i had a couple of these over the years - still have one as a buddy bike )
Santa Cruz Nomad
Original Cannondale Criterium
Cannondale Criterium 3.0
DeRosa SLX (probably should not have sold this one )

Then a passel of C&Vbikes i purchased thinking i would harvest the groups for other projects and just never really got to it -

Bunch of Cannondales
R900, R800, R600, older SR series
R300? - whichever one had RSX components

Centurion Ironmans, -- 2 MAsters, and 2 Experts
Diamondback MAster TG - basically the 1990 Ironman
His and Hers Diamondback Fleetstreak mountain bikes
Raleigh 531 Technium and Univega Modo Vincere --- parted out these and gave the nice framesets to BF members
Coppi road bike,

Too many bikes --- i'd like to pare down the current stable to just a handful, but i've attempted to have a couple of "fire sales" over the years and gotten limited response, so i may be stuck with some of them

Answer from the "whats in the current stable thread
daily driver road bike:
Litespeed Classic - Record 11s carbon

mountain bikes:
Yeti SB 100 - xx1
Yeti SB 95 - X01
