Hello! It's Erik here, and it's my first post on the forum. All of my bike related Google searches led me to this forum, so I thought it would be a good thing to sign up. I come from the vintage car world having a diesel fintail Mercedes, and a Volvo 240 as daily drivers. The old cars led me into the vintage bike scene. I started cycling to work daily now and the old bikes have been piling up too. I have a early 70's CCM Elan mixte that I have been riding for a quite a few years and many miles, and is getting pretty tired now. A near mint '75 Raleigh Superbe I snagged at a police auction this summer, and a '48 CCM loop frame bike that happened to follow me home the other week. I enjoy riding them all. Looks like a great place to communicate with other cyclists, and a wealth of information.
