i just bought my first road bike its a peugot garanti construction reynolds 501 bike. I purchased it for 10$ at a yard sale the brake line to the rear, rusty chain, flat tires are the only thing wrong with it. i have a few questions about the bike seeing as iam new to bike riding but looking to get into the community.
1 iam 6'4" and the bike seems a little small to me.
2 what is the best way to restore the bike to optimal performance without destroying the vintage theme of the bike?
3 was this a smart infestment?
4 what is the best way to start taking this new venture into the world i live in floresville tx and looking for others to bike with
5 what is a good price range or investment into the bike so that i am not going to get ripped off
iam looking forward to your responses and thank you for your time
