I don't collect bikes, per se, but I do own a few.  Mostly because I like riding bikes. A lot.

I don't still own every bike I've ever had, but I do still have a number of them. I've come to think of my collection as a kind of no-kill shelter for older bicycles.  I've done my best, in some cases for decades, to ensure that they will all always be well fed and cared for, and to see to it that they still get a chance to run around off-leash out in the woods now and then, too.
