Newbie saying hi

Hi,

Just saying hi. One of my many interests is vintage lightweight bicycles. Here's my current stable:

* 1985 or so Bianchi Brava- a mix of Campy (Gran Sport) and Shimano (105), non-aero brakes, clip and strap pedals, etc. My weekly rider;
* 1980 or so Masi Special (Italian-made) frame, awaiting a build using Ebay and other-sourced vintage parts;
* late 1960's (?) RWC "Champion" ("Made in Austria")- Campy Valentino, old-logo Mavic tubular rims, large flange hubs w/ wingnuts, Campy clamp-on cable guides, etc. Mostly hangs on the wall looking pretty;
* late 1940's (?) Raleigh 3-speed gent's tourer, with shifter on the top tube- rarely ridden;

I look forward to chatting with you all!
-Peter
