Hello from the UK!
Hello guys and gals...!
Made a post in the classic and vintage subforum, but I suppose now that I've done a bit of work to my bike I'll have a pop here...
I'm from Bristol in the UK, I have a Triumph 20, which I think its a girls bike (is it purple? im colour blind) .. and I'm a guy......
I became interested in bicycles since I normally ride a motorbike as my main form of transport (no car)... so I've become interested in bicycles as an extension from that! there seems like a fair bit to learn, but it will be fun, and I'd like to use this for some exercise!
This bicycle has been in our garage for quite a number of years after mum bought it from a charity shop (thrift store). It's not in good condition, and I've already spent a little more on it than what it is worth... it has some surface rust in places, and the mudguards are even worse, not just surface rust... The chain and gear-stuff is completely covered in gunk.... but I've spent the last few hours cleaning the front half up and replaced the tyre and tube since the previous one was crumbling away - the rear one seems fine but will work on it later once I get a new tube (stupidly punctured one earlier!).
It's a girls bike, it's not in good condition... and i'm working on it, since I think it deserves to be treated with respect and have a good home! I think some of you can agree with that!
