Every person on the CABE is a different age, but I would bet 90% of the people here feel like they are around 13. Just old enough to love bikes.
Im 35 on the outside, but roughly 12 on the inside and don't see that changing any time soon.

23 here. Been at the bike thing since I was about 9. Things have changed so much since then, I have been looking for a pic of me with my first rad rod stingray but have misplaced it... Still have the first stingray chopper dad and I built together.

This is the Hurricane I had for awhile, I wanted that thing so bad, never could get it to shift right...

well, it's great to see so many balloon bike collectors volunteering information on the cabe web site.
I helped get richard truett started with the original hard copy "cabe" so many years ago.
My collecting in the hobby started in 1988 and with the encouragement of the schwinn history center curator jim hurd was given the name of "fender doctor" the following year.
This was after donating my time rolling fenders & detailing bicycles on the schwinn family collection.
It started in the old chicago cycyle building and then more volunteering in the original bicycle museum of america at the north pier terminal in chicago.
I will be 72 next month and am a schwinn collector that specializes in the "schwinn cycelock" repair and keying.

This is a year i.d. and then word math quiz. LOL

1974 the Varsity was over 10 years in the catalog.... but '74 was first year for lime green...

But F. Lime was introduced in 1963, even on the new Sting Rays.

Another trick question. Why is this thread in the General Discussion about old bicycles and not in the Break Room? Was it created before the Break Room was built? ;)
