The forum looks like the most popular bike forum on the 'net so it looks like a good place to interact with others. I recently bought a couple of classic road bikes to refurbish. It has been MANY years since I last rode a bike. The bikes I just bought weren't even a sparkle in an engineer's eye when I last rode a bike to work. So these bikes are a real treat for me.
Attached are the BEFORE (refurb) photos. The second one is a 1985 Schwinn World that I plan to keep and the other is a 1978 Raleigh Record Ace that I plan to flip after a good overhaul. I'll probably be hanging in the Mechanic's Section. Hope to chat soon.
