Hay Y'all!

Hi, I am new to the forum. I am from south Louisiana and discovered my passion for bikes about two years ago. I started out with an exclusive interest old ballooner cruisers and have since learned to appreciate all the many forms of bike (however, I still think mountain bikes are decidedly ugly! : )
So "hello" to all of you fellow cycling lovers!
Laru

Thanks for the welcome!
Well, I had a 1956 Schwinn American that started out a horrible hunter green (it had been painted w/ house paint) so I stripped it and painted it cream. It came out very nicely. I have since sold that one to a friend. Right now I am down to 2 bikes - an 80's schwinn le tour mixte and a rusty old '74 Raleigh Tourist. I'll have to take some better pics and will post them eventually.

I plan to start commuting my 5 miles to work on a bike and am looking for something a little more comfortable than the schwinn (it's kinda too small anyway). I am considering getting a Batavus. Still undecided though. I am always looking out for old schwinn cruisers in the area (apparently so is everyone else).
