Hello from Gothenburg in Sweden!
Just found this page and thought I might join. I really enjoy riding my bicycle, not in competitions but in town or along som nice country road. I recentely picked up an old Raleigh Competition bike and I love it. I have never been in to new bicycles. My father owns an old italian Champion bike and I think my intrest for old race bikes came from him.
Anyway I´m glad i found this page and I think it will be very usefull just looking and learning from all the good threads.

My great grandparents came from Sweden, and their last name was Dahlstrom.
My great grandfather I barely remember, but my great grandmother lived longer, so I remember her more... She made the most wonderful butter cookies!
