This is just me wondering. I know some of you have quite a number of fully restored beauties in your stable.
My collection is very small and nothing rare, exotic or high on a collectors list. I look at and buy old bicycles that I will ride. I stay with 27 and 26 inch wheel size bikes, mostly the "S" word bikes and a JC Higgins..
Space and money ( the wife needs to stop milking her shoulder surgery recovery and get back to work...JK ) limit the number in my collection ,which is fine .
So of my fleet of Ready to Run " bikes, I ride regularly is 100% ( all 6 )

I have 1 restored 41 Schwinn Autocycle that i dont ride. Also, i have 3 other prewar originals that i dont ride either.

In total i have 7 ballooners i ride (mostly Schwinn B6's) and put about 2000 miles on those annually.

Basically if the bike costs more than the car i drive, it gets parked and enjoyed visually.

I don't really have the space for a large collection, so 2 is the limit for the old bikes. We have 2 Chinese sanpans that the wife and I ride if it's wet outside, and a "90 model Jamis Cruiser 6 speed when I'm riding the hills. Then I have an '80 Collegiate single speed, and just picked up a Higgins Flightliner w/ a kickback hub. I ride the Schwinn on nice days, and will do the same with the Flightliner when it's finished. If I had the space I'm quite sure I would have several "Garage Queens" on display. I'm still new to this hobby, but found that it is quickly addicting. :)

All but one of my 13 bikes are ready to ride. Surprisingly the one that is not ready to ride is my newest bike year wise. It's a Trek Y Glide, haven't ridden it in about 4 years. But with some new tubes it could be ridden. In about 1/2 an hour. I would rather ride my cruisers though. Enjoy riding the Rail Trails now more so than the single track or mountain riding.

I currently have somewhere between 60-70 bikes. About the only ones I haven't ridden are the 28" bikes becuase I don't have singletubes that will hold air. Everything else no matter how rare, restored, or original is subject to being ridden and the Hurricane Coasters can attest to this. V/r Shawn

Four RTR.

For New Year's Day I decided to ride each of my four operational bikes.

First a four mile warm-up on my '64 Typhoon two speed...

Of the hand full of bikes I have, which is probably more than for my own good, half are in either 100% perfect working order all the way down to the electric lights, and are ridden regularly in any weather; and the other half are so decrepit they are barely in one piece, awaiting restoration. I even take it a step further, and make sure that I wear clothes that are no newer than 1940s in appearance or design, even if it is 90 degrees out and I have somewhere I need to go. I feel like doing this is part of the experience of riding an old timey bike, and makes you feel even more like you're back in the old days when riding or driving a classic. That might not be everyone's cup of tea, and you do get some surprised looks when you do that!

@Freqman1 Shawn, I wanted to let you I enjoy perusing your web page. The wiring diagrams will probably be the ones I'll need soon. :)

BTW, I have spoke to Don as the wife was worried they wouldn't like her bringing her 3 wheeler. Don said no problem, as long as it's a bike you're welcome to ride. She has nerve damage in her left side from a car accident years back, and her left leg isn't strong enough to keep balanced on a 2 wheeler. She's a trooper and tried several of our 2 wheelers, but it just didn't work out.

@jimbo53 had one with a cooler on it that he brought to a ride. Heck we even had a guy on an Ebike one time. Like I said all riders are welcomed. BTW if you have any suggestions for my website or something you would like to see let me know and I’ll try to make it happen. V/r Shawn
