Hi, I'm new to this and in need of some info

I recently stumbled across what I believe to be a vintage road bicycle. It's an Aende frame, has pelissier hubs, campagnolo rear brake, having searched the internet all the info I can seem to find is that Aende was a frame made by a local chappie Pongo Braithwaite (I live in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire), does anyone have any further info? I concentrate mainly on modern mountain bikes, but this one caught my eye. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Pleased to meet you all.

http://sheldonbrown.com/home.html would be one place to start. By the way, he's also a BF member.

Welcome to BF, by the way. Another place would be the Classic/Vintage forum here at BF.

Hey Tom I was gonna tell him that. Never mind what he said....

A really cool place to check out is the Classic and Vintage section. They have some pretty smart people there who will guide your way.

And after that, come over to Foo, where Tom and I hang out!~
