I don't have a really old bike in my stable yet. I find your antique bikes facinating. But I do have my 1994 Trek 930 that I bought new, and have long since converted to more of a commuter bike. 22 miles this morning. Your antique bikes would be right at home in front of that radio station. Art Deco building constructed around 1930. I often pass it on one of my regular routes.

Welcome @Chuck S to theCABE Enjoy the Ride!
This afternoon Sweetie and I rode to the library and around HB Central park a few times.
Of course a meal is part of the trip; The Habit this time.

That's a @Boris custom reflector on the saddle of the Clipper; Dig it!

I miss seeing adds for @Boris reflectors. ;)

They are nice.

Of course sometimes I miss Huntington Beach very much @tripple3 , then I remember that the house I lived in isn't there anymore and there is a mini mansion in it's place.

Triple3 you have a very cool looking bike. Those springs on the saddle are huge. I have never ridden a bike like that, I suspect it must be very comfortable.
Blackbomber I have a modern road bike and a cheap Aluminum frame cruiser also. But the Trek is special, feels like a part of me when I ride it. I put 4500 miles on the Trek in the last 7 years. I will never sell that bike.
You guys are a bad influence though, really got me thinking about getting a classic balloon tire bike. I really like the look of the swept handlebars and curvy frames. I do wonder what it would be like to ride a bike that I expect is much heavier than what I typically ride. My cheap aluminum cruiser weighs only 27 lbs, even though it is a single speed a long ride is not a problem.

You know, @Chuck S, to keep a bike for 25 years... and to still be riding it - that says something about you, and your Trek.

Welcome to the Cabe.
wait, you all don't have bikes you have had since they were new? :)

I have had this one for 41 years, got it right after high school, it started life as a Huffy Good Vibrations. Which reminds me, it needs to get back in the rotation for a few days.

@Chuck S , welcome to the gang. At least you are RIDIN' NOT HiDIN'. . Over 600 miles a year is a lot of ground you've covered.
Oh dont think ...I'll just get ONE classic or Antique bike. Plus the more bicycles you have the more different muscle groups you workout. At least thats what I tell myself...:p

Very cool bike. Wow, 41 years. I wish I had keep the new Varsity I got in 71, it would be 48 years. I got swayed by a nice looking Motobecane Super Mirage in 77. Sold that one too. I really like that springer fork.

Yet another obsession, I mean hobby. If I get an antique bike I will likely dump the cheap aluminum cruiser. My garage is only so big.
