A week after I found the TREK below, I found this 1968(?) Dawes Galaxy. Very original except for the rear wheel and derailers.
I've built it up pretty stock to celebrate how my Dawes Galaxy tourer (below) started out.

1991 Miyata Elevation 5000 that I've built up as my off road tourer.

1985 Cannondale SR500 I'd never seen a METALLIC PLUM Cannondale before. Suntour Cyclone derailers and an amazingly clean bike for being 20+ years old. Looks like it had only had a couple of years of use before I got it, and still has the Cannondale "The Aluminum Advantage" handlebars - from a friend of the original owner.

Another "new" bike, this time a 1990 Cannondale ST600 Tourer.
It had been used as a road bike, and I've added the racks and fenders, upgraded the wheel set, and intend to continue prepping it as a loaded touring machine -
though I don't know if I'll ever use everything at once! From the friend of the original owner.

1985 Univega Gran Sprint - S
Found it at a garage sale, after the previous owner had let the tires rot off of it. I know why; it came stock with sew-ups, probably one
of the last low cost bikes with sew-ups. I redid the wheels with Mavic aero clincher rims.

An early 70's Eddy Merckx. This bike was built by Falcon. I have upgraded it with all sorts of interesting components, including GB engraved bars, Universal Model 61 center pull brakes, Campy Valentino derailers, Modolo levers, Brooks saddle, Carnielli "cookie cutter" stem, Nissi Toro rims, Nervar crank, and even Heuret thumb screw axles and a latch-clip bottle holder with an aluminum bottle. It's heavy, but who cares? From the original owner.

My 1974 Ellis-Briggs. This was my first quality frame (1987), and is still one of the best balance of handling and comfort of any bike I've ever had.
I've probably put between 30 and 40K miles on it.
I ride these things,
too. Here are some photos of
