Well, I can't top this, but can tie it:

ca. 1950 Schwinn Town & Country tandem, which we bought about 1970. Of course, everything except the fork (frame included) has been replaced since then (frame under extended warranty).

but let's talk about sum of ages, since I can add in the 1938 (?) Paramount (?) fixed gear I got in 73 (29 years), and the 61 Paramount road bike I got in 75 (27 years).

All of this just shows that I'm a real old f--t.
