Guess I have a thing for silver. My two bikes are silver and so is my car. Hmmm...

Brazilian-made Caloi Racer that I bought new, circa 1975


2011 Novara Forza


The Caloi is a work in (slow) progress.

I think you should buy my IF Ti. Then you could get the bars low enough!

When I was 10 years old my family moved into a bright yellow house. My Mom instantly went out and bought a bright yellow Volkswagen Beetle. So when I got my very first Schwinn Varsity Sport...yep, it was bright yellow.

No pics, or else I'd have to star a new Eye Candy: Yellow thread!

This sweetheart is getting close to retirement -- cracked frame, cobbled together to last until the new one comes.... But it's been SOOOOOOO GOOD!

Kids are holding it up in one pic.

Just reviving an older thread. My new, old Takara. But it still rides like new. I used to sell these at my bike shop 30 years ago.

Opps! I forgot all about this old Ross that I picked up a couple of years back. I was fascinated by the mechanicals on this little bike. The freewheel is in the crank!! Not a bad "curb find".
