    I Like Bikes

    Back in single pre-mom days, about 20 years ago, I used to ride around enough to use toe clips. That was a long tome ago (now 43) but I still tell myself one day I will get back to it. I like to ride on bike paths, too timid to ride with traffic these days. So, not a serious bike rider but I haven't given up either. I have an LLBean Road Bike in the barn that I bought a couple of years ago with good intentions. It's been out only a few times this season...

    I also like bikes for the way that they look, however, especially vintage British 3 speeds. My mom had a Raleigh when I was a kid and whenever I see one now I feel like I have to buy it.

    I have acquired in the last couple of years two '60's-era ladies' 3-speeds, a Raleigh and a BSA. My main reason for joining this forum is to get some advice on the best way to deal with these. They are both in "as found" condition and need work. I am off to the vintage/classic forum to ask what the conoisseurs think about bringing these back.

    Cheers.

    The folks over there will tell you that what you are doing is wonderful, and that insistent East Hill will ask where are the photos ?
