    I have an Austro Daimler Inter 10. It's a great bike. All Reynolds 531 tubing so it's very light, and it has fairly high end components from good bike parts manufacturers. Bought it in Philadelphia in 1979 and have done some modifications to it to make more rideable for an old person. Has the mixte frame, so it's very unusual. Apparently AD was one of the very few companies that made high end mixte road bikes.

    Love my vintage bicycle.

    I have a Pashley Princess Sovereign.

    I would like a nice Raleigh Twenty and a Raleigh Chopper.

    The Pashley is classy. A proper ladies' bike.

    I also have a Brompton folder.

    The Chopper has become a serious collector's item, which certainly drives the price up. Even a nice Twenty goes for a lot.

    I've also had a number of vintage Schwinns over the years but I much prefer the British bikes.
