Hello everyone, I figured I'd join this group so I could see all the pics and maybe ask some questions. I've always owned one bicycle at a time since about 1973 (12 years old). The first one was THE GREEN MONSTER, a bike too big for me that I painted green, changed the seat and handle bars ( man I hated those cottered cranks), single speed. The next was a brand new 10 speed medalist from canadian tire. After that was stolen I bought a new 12 speed excalibur from the same store and managed to keep it for over 10 years until I got the bug again and bought a hybrid (was getting tired of the skinny tires). Still have the hybrid, though the bug came back when my freind gave me his raleigh condor I was storing for him. Took me a long time to identify the bike online (the component group is the shimano golden arrow 1983) Since then I've bought 2 bikes from a newspaper ad,2 bikes from the police auction, and 2 bikes from garage sales. "It really is more fun, when you own more than one".
