    Hello.
    I am from Iowa. I have four bikes so far, a '63 Schwinn Tiger with a Bendix two speed, a '68 racer with a 3 speed hub, a '63 Typhoon with a single speed, and a '77 Varsity ten speed. My favorite of them all is the Tiger. I found it for free in 2005 on the curb with flat tires and the grease frozen between the two gears. Since two years ago when I got an odometor on it, I went 1,200 miles... but then the odometor broke. But, as you can see, I like the old bikes far better than the new.
    Right now I am working on making a set of skis for the front wheel of my bike so I can ride it in the winter. May be cold... But that is all I have to move around.
    Other intrests of mine include Tube Radio repair and vintage gasoline engines.
    But, hopefully I can be a help (and find help) on these forums.
    Thanks,
    Brian S.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon

    Welcome to BF.
    Tube radios? I used to mess with those, but that was years ago when I could find tubes at Radio Shack.
    When I saw your user name I thought you had something like this. :drool:
