Hello from Springfield, MO
I'm Bob Hufford from Springfield, Missouri. I was fairly heavily into bikes from childhood (born in1960) until about 1984. Stayed away (collected Volkswagens instead) for about a decade and got back into it by reliving my childhood by collecting bikes I used to own (Sting-Rays, English Roadsters, Schwinn, Peugeot, Motobecane lightweights). I've settled down currently to a '75 Schwinn Paramount P-10, '67 Raleigh/Carlton Flyer (now a fixed gear), '83 Specialized Expedition (the tourer/commuter), a couple of '70s Schwinn Super Sports (this was my first new Schwinn way back when), a '90s Marin single-speed mountain bike and a Swing Bike (mid-70s trick/muscle bike). I've probably had around 15 other bikes in the last decade. With three teenagers and a mortgage, I don't find too much time to ride, but as soon as the oldest (almost 16) has that license, I won't have to drive her to school and I can resume the commute. I'm addicted to bike classified web sites (that's how I found this forum) as I'm always looking for what I don't have. I put together a Swing Bike page <http://www.geocities.com/bobhufford/swing.html
