Hi to all

Whenever I did a Google search for information on bikes, Bikeforums.net came up. I restore vintage bikes as a hobby. Dump bikes are my personal favorite. You would not believe what people will throw away in this town. My most recent find was a 1980's Raliegh Gran Prix. Needed a good cleaning and some touchup paint, plus $20 in parts. Recently restored my 1971 Peugeot UE-8. What a fun project. Currently working on restoring a Peugeut with a carbolite 103 frame. Looking to make that my erand and commuter bike. Thanks in advance for all the great advice!

Welcome to Bike Forums, I'm betting you've already found the Classic & Vintage forum here.

Do you have any photos of your bikes?
