Wow!  Having one is really cool but having one in every color makes my jaw drop!  Impressive line up.

That is awesome.  Almost had my hands on a blue and a black one a couple of years ago. Love the PeddelPower headtube decal.

I've got one set of the first gen Powerlite/ Peddlepower forks that have 1" forks legs for race. I actually think my original loaner bike had Red Line forks which were proven very strong. I think they came out with the 7/8" legs in '78. I've got lots of them, although I might actually be short a couple to complete my frames. I've got several more frames and bikes to list. All Powerlite and Peddlepower '83 and older.

Re: 1976 Peddlepower

Man, that is very impressive.  I always loved the older powerlites, I am a big fan of the bars too, my favorite. I run them on every bike I am actually going to ride.   Great collection and history, Great to see.
