For reasons too complex to go into in depth, I am ogling classic Schwinns recently. Sam and I collaborated on this one, found in a basement in Durango in October, for Mom. It replaced an identical (if from a different year) version she had stolen earlier this year. We paid $240; this was a $100-dollar bike in 1973. So we got it at a discount.

Finally, I have been simply drooling over this bike:
