I got a 64 Sears Flightliner girls bike to fix up for my Mother in-law in 2005. I was always into mountain bikes, but when I worked on this bike I enjoyed it so much. Then not long after I got my own bike, a 55 Rollfast. I no longer have a pic of it unfortunently.

Would you believe it was a tanklight?
Early 60s or late 50s Ross Deluxe. Think I paid big money... $200, man I was so naive.
I thought this was the baddest bike I had ever seen. I was hooked at this point.
Wow, that was a long time ago (2009).
I think my collection has been upgraded a bit since then.

Picked this out of the trash in the mid 80's. It's literally been hanging around since. Really got into the hobby a little over three years ago. May be why I have such a thing for Colson's.

I traded a Penn Jigmaster for a 1960 Schwinn Tornado back in high school.
That was the first 26" wheel bike I had, Sting Ray's and 10 speeds before that.
I had been hanging around the Recycled Cycles Bike Shop, so my interest in old bikes started around then.
Mid to late 70s.
I sort of took a sabbatical during the road and mountain bike craze of the 80s & 90s.

1962 Hercules ten-speed I bought about 6 years ago. I went to look at a Peugeot for a randonneur build and came home with the Herc instead. Researching the Cyclo Benelux components lead me down this dark alley. I still have the Herc though my interest these days is in roadsters, my wrists and back don't do dropbars anymore.

Ugg....Thought I deleted this pic. This one shot says it all. Crappy repainted Schwinn in the background was given to my girl by some friends years ago. She wanted me to get a bike too. Spotted this Del Sol on CL & picked it up. Same seller had the ladies Sears Mainliner & my girl fell in love with it:confused:. Needless to say, we've moved on...:oops:
