A little childish of a title, yes, but if you have a vintage bike and you ride it… they always make you feel like a kid again!

Post them, share your stories, ignite the fire in others to get theirs out and ride ‘em!

From barn finds, family heirlooms, or parts bikes that miiiiiiiiight just make it back on the road at some point, I want to see them! I like to say I’m the victim of a good deal and that’s how I have 17 vintage bikes, but I’d love to hear how yours came around!

4 runners and a project.

It and the Hyper are fun bikes but have little range and no place to take anything along. The little Duke is a fantastic bike for someone wanting to learn how to ride. Not real tall, light and excellent controls

Original owner '77 TT-500D - Rarely ridden these days. Was my primary Dune-runner for many years...

Fun little restoration project... Was a TOTAL "C"-pile when I got it. Re-furbished it, loaded it onto the hitch of the RV and it was our tag-along for a few years... Sold to another RV'r.
