    Hi from the Bronx

    Glad to meet you all,

    I used to road race in the 70s, but I've always been in love with track bikes. My first was a Frejus (1970 bought, but I think Tommy Avenia sold me one from the late 60s. Anyway, about 10 years later she was stolen Well, I had bikes after that, but they weren't the same. So, recently I took a shot and searched for a Frejus on craigslist. To my surprise, there were two! One chrome 56cm and one described as "painted black" --both track bikes from the 50s. I emailed, just on a whim. Turns out that the black bike wasn't repainted, as I thought, it was just a beautiful black Frejus that was just my size. I bought it, and started looking around the bike fora, ebay listings, etc.. That's how I found this place.

    I'm glad to be around to talk about bikes, especially the Italian classics.

    cheers,
    Steve
