Hi everyone! I'm From Socal

Hey everyone! i just wanted to introduce myself. Im pretty new at everything about bikes, except for the fact that i know how to ride one. I just purchased a vintage looking bike from my neighbor's garage sale and im here to just try and get into the bike scene and fix up the bike i just bought for 25 bucks.

Hey that's a good deal! Don't worry about the cost or the age of a bike, it's riding that counts. You can have a $2000 bike and if it doesn't get ridden, it's as good as useless. Welcome to the forum, and hope you get a chance to put lots of happy miles on the new machine!

Hello and welcome 123!!

Sounds like a fun project, I agree on urging you to post some pics. IMO restoring is great fun too!! I enjoy turning what looks like garage sale trash into fun to ride bikes.

Good luck on the restore!!
