1977 Schwinn le tour
I guess "3 speed" bikes are a type of road bike? the Black one is a 1968 Sears (steyer?) 3 speed, the Red one is a 1970's Columbia 5-speed.
Raleigh Technium USA 440
I was just checking out my wife's uncle's Peugeot, just like the one you posted. It is nowhere near as pretty as that, and I'm scared of the European sizes, so it's still in his garage, but he sure enjoyed rolling down memory lane!
In the works. 85 Schwinn Sierra with 700c 8-speed Nexus.
But I think I'm going to put this setup, along with the Sakae cranks, on a 63 Schwinn Corvette frame. As it will have a little more rear tire clearance, a little lower bottom bracket, and room for a layback seatpost for a little more leg extension while still being able to touch the ground.
1986 Miyata 610, touring bike
Someday I'll take a stroll around my brother's garage and snap some pics. He's a garage door repair guy, so he gets a peek at everyone's stash. All he does is vintage road bikes; Dawes, Shogun, Miyata, Miele, nothing but vintage classics. Refuses to pay over a hundred, still gets the gold.
So stubborn about them too, I've finally convinced him to try one with a flat bar as an attempt at getting him to look at mountain bikes too. He set one up, almost. It's been done for months, except for brake levers, he "can't find any". Think it's an excuse not to get off drop bars.
I only have one bike that kind of falls into the road bike classification, as it is a Racer, that was designed and built for use on the road, ergo, a road bike.
Anyway. 1920 Pierce Amateur Sprint Racer, Model BR. Carbon steel frame and fork, 25 pounds of fun.
Scary fast also.
Great for a Street Racer Classic event!
