Greetings from West Seattle

Hello all,

I used to cycle quite a bit as a teen, but haven't for years. I've been having the itch to get a bike and this week my stepfather offered to give me his old Bianchi (stored up in the attic for 25 years). I'm in the process of trying to figure out exactly what it is and feasible it is to ride with some new components (more on that in the Classic Vintage Rides thread.

Pleasure to meet you all!

Ken

Hello Ken, do you ride across the West Seattle Bridge, or do you just head south to leave West Seattle?
