I feel stupid doing this...I'm a 62-year-old retired (starving) middle-school teacher who is addicted to the Tour de France coverage on TV. I used to ride road bikes when I was young and stupid. Now that I'm old and stupid, I'd like to try it again. When I found the forum this evening I saw a posting by someone with a Picchio signature. I have a Picchio Special (early 80's) covered with tumbleweeds of dog hair propped up in my den. Maybe someone out there in cyberspace is peddling around the forum in one. Without the dog hair, I hope. I'm looking forward to hearing from any and all who are interested in vintage bikes. Thanks for letting me sneak in.
