to love & hate vintage road bikes

hi, my name is blake & I have a love affair of older bikes, currently have an '85 ProMiyata. I enjoy steel bikes, & triple-butted chromo tubing.
I do, however, consistently run into challenges with part compatibility when trying to upgrade or simply make the bike work for my present needs.
Excited to have a forum that I can troubleshoot my bicycle needs with people, hope to find others who work on, or have bicycles from the 80s.

You have come to the right place. Classic & Vintage is there for you--just remember to bring photos.
