TGIF, and possibly a New Bike Day?

The work week is finally over. Everyone loves Friday no? Especially Fridays that are pay days!
And tonight, I'm going to take a look at another bike I may potentially buy... till then, here's a few more photos of the bikes I currently own, or have owned at one time.

1983 Apollo Kuwahara BMX. Restored this rusty bike from the scrap pile, and gave it to a good friend of mine as his birthday present. He loves it!

Does anyone know what this is? I think it was only ever popular in Canada. This is the 1st brand new mountain bike that I bought back in the day. I believe it's a late 90's model, BRC Litespeed. BRC is now defunct, but you'd see them all over the streets of Vancouver back then. It stood for Bike Rider's Choice. My bike is in very good shape still, as I hardly rode it.

2003 (or so) Brodie Rocket full suspension mountain bike. Picked this one earlier this year at a local police auction, just because I loved the way that it looked! It rides pretty good too.

Okay, that's enough for now, everyone have a good weekend, and get out there and ride! Will post more soon!

And this is NOT a test! How's it going? Well, I've been riding my bike(s) all summer, and fall is just around the corner now. At last count, I've amassed quite a collection! A couple of hybrids, a couple of mountain bikes, a couple of road bikes, and a couple of bmx's! They just seem to come and go, mostly sticking around than actually going! I'll have to post up all the photos soon! Here's a couple..
This is my singlespeed/fixie that I built up. It was quite a lesson! I recieved the frame (Norco Monterey) for free, and then proceded to build it up. Little did I know it was going to cost me a small fortune! I didn't get a chance to ride it much, as I had other bikes to ride, so it's pretty much an art piece hanging on the wall now.

This is my 2008 Devinci Melbourne. Bought brand new from the shop, but rarely riden! Has sat in my storage locker for more than a year now. I better sell it...
