    Short answer: most of them!. Earlier in the year I sold a ton of bikes. Late in the year I bought a ton of bikes. My collection gets bigger or smaller based on my current mood.

    I tried very hard to not buy anything last year but I was weak! Temptation was everywhere. Like always I will take the time to blame my wife ;-) She kept telling me not to buy anything but the rebel in me had other plans :) I ended up with a 1918 Sears Chief, a Silver king Flocycle and a 1908 Pierce bicycle.

    I know it's a mix of parts, but it is a very cool mix of parts so I couldn't resist. This is the only bike I added this year..

    2017 - This was an interesting one for me as 2/3 of the way through I became a retiree! During the course of the year we have taken in a few other resident/project types, and one that should not have been a project.... but FedEx took care of that so that I will be trying to fix what they damaged and let get away in shipping for yet a whole 'nother period of 2018!
    We started out with the last 20" bike I intended to build, a '70 model Sting-Ray.
    01  70 BF46762 A.jpg

    02  70 BF46762 B.JPG

    Once that was near complete, Something popped up that made me stop and latch on to another 20" project - a '64 Fleet. changed a few pieces of it but left the paint alone other than a little touchup
    03  64 B470902 A.jpg

    04  64 B470902 B.jpg

    That was followed by a pre-war ('37) Straightbar - BA97. This was a bare frame, and is now a cruise-mobile.
    05  37 X11028 A.jpg

    06  37 X11028 B.JPG

    And another pre-war followed in it's steps. This one was a mess in the fender department, and they are up for replacement at some point. One of the straight rear triangle editions from '37.
    07  37 Y13386 A.jpg

    07  37 Y13386 A.jpg

    Next up was another 24" model - a '60 Corvette, again a frame, fork and guard to start with. Another fun rider.

    10  60 J037373 B 24.JPG

    This was the time to put a '55 model 24" Flying star into rideable shape. Nothing fancy, just a continuation ride based on the 20" one thrown together a few years ago. It's ripe now!
    11  55 S34628 A 24.jpg

    12  55 S34628 B 24.JPG

    Another 24" model came along - an American that matched the 26" one I got a year or two back. This was another piece thrown into the 24" lineup.
    13  65 HA17843 A 24.jpg

    14  65 HA17843 B 24.JPG
    We found a nice, equipped, original paint '39 model C right here on the CABE. This one was to remain as original as possible with a cleanup and "underhaul." Cleaned up, polished up and greased up, it's up and running now.
    15  39 B40374 A.jpg

    16  39 B40374 B.JPG

    And then there was another addition to the Fleet group, also a 24" bike and the same year ('64) as the first Fleet of 2017 - same idea, original paint touched up, and some different pieces thrown at it.
    17  64 A428696 A 24.jpg

    18  64 A428696 B 24.JPG

    The end of the year became focused more on pre-war stuff - a '41 "World" frame, also right on the CABE, and not off the wall of wait yet. The fork, nor the crank/sprocket were purchased with this frame as those pieces were already sold when I hit the ad for the frame. I did end up with the Miller stand though! I have found both types of forks - truss and springer, which way will it go?
    19  41 Autocycle A ~.jpg

    Then a really large step for us, and an even larger mis-step for FedEx - A '34 Aero Cycle that was a complete restoration and quite a looker before the FedEx situation. I'm still waiting on a response from them at this time (almost two months later)
    20  34 48108 A.jpg

    Then, the last piece for the year, another bare frame and fork - a straight rear triangle doublebar roadster that appears to be a '37 model too. This one will be another cruise-mobile when finished.
    21  37 Y04657 A ~.jpg

    Let's go for 2018!! A lot less buying this year I'm sure, and I really want to get this Aero-Cycle situation done and over!

    I hadn't realized I picked up so many bikes last year (no balloon tire bikes, sorry) until I thought about answering this thread (shhh, don't tell my wife)!! I confess I was shocked when I saw the list. I thought maybe I had bought around five or six bikes. Last year surely marked the climax of the acquisition stage of my collecting. From now on I think I will be focusing on finding parts and lacing rims for the bikes I already have. Last year added the following bikes that were all built by Canadian companies or in Canadian branch plants of US or British firms:

    1896 Comet
    1898 Lozier Cleveland Model 62 (Ladies)
    1899 Lozier Cleveland Model 66
    c.1916 Hyslop
    1918 CCM Cleveland Model 455 (Ladies)
    c.1921 Berlin & Racycle Motobike
    1925 CCM Cleveland
    1925 CCM Cleveland (Ladies)
    c.1936 SCP (Standard Cycle Products) Motobike
    1936 CCM Flyer track bike
    1937 CCM Flyte
    1939 CCM Motorbike with newspaper basket
    c.1947 Sunshine Waterloo belt-drive boys & girls sidewalk bikes
    c.1947 Thistle girls bike
    1963 CCM Sabre
    1963 CCM Imperial Mk II
    1965 CCM Imperial Mk IV (girls bike for the wife)
    1974 Supercycle 26" wheels - made by Raleigh Canada

    Some photos (mostly as I got them):

    I'm still new in the hobby, and have not found, or made the investment in any real special ones yet, I'm still getting my feet wet. So far I have not really pursued any models in particular, and have bought everything inexpensively at garage sales, and sorts when a good opportunity arises. I'm still enjoying reading through all the posts here, and gaining knowledge before I make any larger purchases or seek out any specific models.

    Along the way, I'm having some fun and also enjoy working on, as well as ridding the ones I have found.

    Last year I picked up these:

    The Sears bike in my Avatar
    A Old Zep frame, not yet built up
    A Burgandy 3-Speed Raleigh
    A 56 Traveler with the Wing Schwinn Logo
    A Nice Looking Forrest Green Schwinn Suburban that I have not fixed up yet
    A Schwinn Letour (A bike I rode allot of last summer)
    A 12 Speed Viscount, that I still need a good derailleur for
    A 12 Speed Peugeot
    A Miyata Three Ten
    And a handful of Mountain Bikes most of which have already been fixed up and sold or given to friends. I think I finished the year with about 5 more bikes than I started with.

    I'll confess not stock - the bottom is entirely custom, beginning with custom Phil hubs, though the top is basically correct.
    Proud of some of my touches - GB Arret brake levers, GB Map of England bars, Cyclo Super shifter, fork-boss-mounted lamp, and of course my FD-mounted Simplex chain guard.
    I built the entire bike bolt-on, without altering the original-condition '57 frame in any way.
