Now this thread really IS fun... in no particular order 1/Mike Barry is now 32 years building bicycles and my new classic 650B Mariposa makes me wish for an early example, maybe a tandem. Mike's an expert at tandems and I'd like mine with 650B wheels, Mafac Raids, and all the trimmins'. 2/Singer "race" bike, since I have the more detailed 650B and 700c Randonneur. 3/Herse, full camper, sans the Cyclo rear derailleur (too finnicky for me...) 4/Jack Taylor randonneur...Martin...did you sell the NOS bike yet? 5/Sachs PathRacer, actually, putatively, surely someday, in the works! 6/Masi GC or Cinelli or, dare I say, Molteni Colnago Super... (Aside: desireable or not, I have never ridden a Colnago that I didn't love...) And given the way the Mariposa rides (I did a sweet, slow century on Wednesday, the last time we saw the sun...), I'd like a garage full, any vintage.
