I'm 68 years old, retired from the U S Air Force in 1988 and settled in DeLand 12 years ago. I've been adult cycling off and on for about 40 years -- more off than on the past ten years. I ride a ten year old Raleigh M40 mountain bike and twenty year old custom built Mercian road bike. I also still have a Bottecchia that I did some club racing on nearly 40 years ago but it's in need of restoration before I'll be riding it again. These forums look like a good place for me to get some tips on restoring the Bottecchia and perhaps motivate me to ride enough to lose some of the weight I've gained sice military days. The Fifty Plus (50+), Classic and Vintage and Regional Discussions (Southeast) forums look like good places for me to start.
