Hi all. I've just gotten this Raleigh USA mixte that I want to fiddle around with and make a fun ride out of. I'm not looking to keep it in original condition (does that get me booted from here?!). My goals are to learn about fixing up bikes, have a little fun hobby and come out with a fun, ride-able bike.
I know there's a ton I can find on this board, but 2 quick questions to start: I don't have any tools yet. What would be a good starter kit that would include tools useful for the Raleigh. Is there a book you would recommend or should I stick to this site and other websites?
OK...one more question: What Would You Do with it??
