    Posted here last year, but just cleaned her up. My 1965 Sears Spaceliner Deluxe. A few degrees warmer and I'm taking her out!

    Bikes were a passion of mine many years ago. As a kid I raced BMX in Chandler. Also loved very early Freestyle bikes. My son found out about some of my old bikes and for the past few years we have restored a few. This is one of my pride and joys. It sucked having it repainted but it was already resprayed the wrong color when I got it. I prefer "survivors" but seeing as there was somewhere in the area of 200, or less, of these made in 1984, the chances of finding one was nil. It took me over 2 years to source the parts for this one. Oh, its a very rare 1984 Redline RL-20II, Japanese made frame/fork set.

    I have a few others, including my sons baby, a 1983 Haro freestyler. Will have to get some better pictures of all of them.

    It's all mine now.. Custom ordered from the factory in Italy back in Oct/Nov time frame. Will have a very short ride in the neighborhood, then next weekend "Salado Smokin Spokes" event.

    Nice bikes!

    Here's my latest project - an early 90's Davidson frame (local Seattle builder who's still at it). I built the wheels and a friend helped me set up the tires tubeless. I got a cheap Ultegra 6800 group from Ribble and found the Ritchey WCS shallow bars on ebay. The Salsa stem I have been hoarding for years just waiting for the right bike to put it on. :) What's holding me up is the stop on the chainstay for the rd housing takes a weird stepdown ferrule. Hopefully I can track something down and have it cabled up and on the road this weekend.

    Here's three in my stable that I think represent new manufacturers to this thread
    : My "summer" bike, Merckx AXM, Campy Record 11 build
    The Salsa Vaya rain bike, Ultegra triple build
    My beloved Miyata 1100, a late 70's classic, I believe, that I've owned since new. My uncle was the importer back in the day. Previous to Miyata, he imported Gitanes. I had an early 70's touring Gitane that I wish was still around.

    Trek Bike.JPG This is my Trek 730 Multi-track, I had been using my Raleigh road bike for years, about ten years ago I saw this listed for free in a local paper. I figured I would check it out but expected it to be too small for me (I'm about 6'1" ). I checked it out, fit me just fine. I gave it to a friend, he used it for two years, then gave it to my teenage son. My son lost interest in it, I started riding it ( now that I'm older I really don't care for dropped handlebars) and fell in love with it! I use it all the time, yesterday I took it for a thirty mile ride. I don't know if it is standard, but the seat post and handle bar stem have a "shock absorber" in them. Nothing fancy, but a nice ride for sure! Trek Bike.JPG

    I spent this afternoon converting my '95 Sunn Vertik 2 to a single speed, and doing some long overdue general maintenance.

    Before:

    After (it still needs a trip to the mechanic for some issues I'm not confident fixing myself, but overall I'm quite pleased with the result):

    I sold this Battaglin road bike last year. I wasn't happy to see it go, as it was in excellent condition, and rode very well. But the 52cm. frame was just a bit too small for me to ride it comfortably.
