SWB Recumbent bike
Description:  Upgrades: Terracycle idler, Rotor Q-Ring middle chainring, fenders, rear rack, and Schwalbe Marathon tires. Set up for light touring. Rotor Q-Ring is the best investment I have ever made for a bike. I looked at recumbent bikes for about 3 years before buying. Ride forever with no pain, great bike.

Road bike
Description:  Bike was given to me. Since I had a Dawes of the same year and looked identical, I thought I would clean it up a bit.
The more I cleaned the better it started looking... and then I started adding a few new parts. Had some handlebars, some bar tape, and the derailleurs were crap (Plastic Simplex) got some older Campy stuff off eBay. Anyway, it looks and rides great.
Update: In the process of a restomod, more new parts, and respray.

XC Mountain bike
Description:  Bought at a thrift store for $10. Needed lots of love(and parts).
New rear wheel, tires (26x2.4"), cables, bar and grips. Borrowed Seat and pedals from the Raleigh. Cleaned up everything else. Turned out great.
Going to use for dirt roads and snow in the Winter.
Update: Retired, very nice handling bike trying to find it a new home...

Road bike
Description:  Bought at a Yard Sale.
Bike was ridden 1 time as a review for a Newspaper, then parked in a shed for the last 28 years.
Don't know quite what to do with it.
Roadmaster brand now owned by Pacific Cycles.
Inexpensive components(read cheap), but frame looks well made. May make a good commuter,unless someone wants it original. Will not ride.
Update: completely stripped bike down, cleaned, buffed/polished and put together again. Looks like new... Still have not ridden it.
