So far, most of the bikes I have been buying and tinkering with have been 60's and 70's British 3-speeds. I've had fun finding $30-$50 deals at garage sales and customizing them. I've turned some into rat rods and kept others really traditional. I think I want to buy a vintage road or touring bike but don't know a ton about them. I am willing to pay a good bit more for one of these but don't want to get taken to the cleaners. I want something that rides really good and still has enough style to turn heads. I like the early 80's Bianchis and I also really like Rivendell's new touring bikes (but not the price). I'll just be riding for pleasure but could be going 15-20 miles at a time. Any suggestions on makes and models that you think could fit the bill would be greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read this.
