dayam, nice shed collection!
Thanks, each one has a funny story/neat part, as all of your do.

The Firestone I got in 1994 for $40. It had been outside for decades in Leup, Arizona.
The Wards was the first older cruiser that I did not need to use a hammer to get it apart!
The Miyata is not a US spec'd bicycle.
Deluxe Twinn I got in Flagstaff for $75!!!
Deja Tu was a NIB frame kit when I bought it in '99.
Duet had 2 frozen seat posts and 27" wheels, paid $100!
The Sirrus was my first indexing road bike.
Cannondale has 1 of 4 solo Richard Sachs custom made forks! I rode it until '99.
Fat Chance has original Syncros stem and post.
Ridge Runner Team I rode until late 1996 when I got my first front suspension bike, IF.
The Shogun was purchased at a pawn shop.
The Jamis is sporting my 3rd generation winter tire I made back in 1988 in NH; Panaracer Ibex. It was the USA Team "town bike" at Vail Worlds, 2001. The black tape on the top tube was to make remembernce bands on the USA member plates; which was my idea what to use and where to put it.

"Each year we bring the same US flag to hang in the USA Team Shop. This flag has been all around the world. During the 2001 World's, it hung at half mast. At the direction of USA Cycling, the mechanics have placed a black mark number plates of all US rider in honor of those who have died and were injured from the terrorists' attack."

Love that Miyata cruiser! Too bad its not the men's frame! Cool stuff. The Ridge Runner Team looks like it came out of a time capsule from 1987!

I have the clean anal twin Ridge Runner Team that is all original with the correct vintage "racer" parts, hanging in the shop, www.absolutebikes.com awaiting H-ball to showup and autograph it. I have asked him to visit the shop, so it's a matter of time.
