My Old MKM still in great shape

Good day Here , I am Retired now from a career at sea spanning 45+ years trying to get into riding once again , I still have my old MKM and its a great road machine had it rebuilt several times through the years iv had it.. built in the 70s . Cureous here if theres any one still even remembers these frames. Or that grew up in the San Diego are as i did and might remember Threshold Bikes or Frank Appell in Old town He was a great old guy built some fine machines . And built mine back then . Anyhow this is the first time using one of these Forums and not quite sure how anything works or who reads this stuff. But anyone has any remarks thats fine. im not a young guy any more but manage to get up these hills around here when they get in front of me . Riding is good for anyone and a good way to keep fit and ready for the ski season that has just ended.Hiking time ariveing about now. Ah well im outa here for now ....Frank......out

Welcome to the forums.

Posting picture can be done by clicking on "Manage Attachments" when posting a message.

They can also be shown inline if you host them on another site, by using the Insert Image icon at the top of the compose window using a URL.

Be sure to stop by Classic & Vintage, that is a pllace where people admire the older bikes (I hang out there too).
