The family that rides together......

Thought I'd share pics of the family's collection of bikes.

We love getting out as much as possible, and with the weather warming up, that will be a lot more.

Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

The tyres that were on it are a brand called Swallow, made in Korea. Not sure if they are era correct, but they must be fairly old because the rubber was deteriorating, and I couldnt find oem dual white line tyres, so had to settle for whitewalls.

I am definately in awe of your collection of bikes.
