Greetings from Winnipeg Canada

Hi all,

Love the forums. Lots of really great advice. I got the build and restore bugs last summer and have overhauled four or five bikes since then.

I'm mostly interested in English three speeds and bikes in that style.

I've just come from my basement lair after priming a CCM frame given to me by a friend. I've also just finished stripping down a little five speed that will find a good home when I'm done.

Check this picture. It tells the whole story. I just can't stand to see perfectly good bikes rusting away when, with a few hours work, that rusty old bike becomes someone's prized possession again.

Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums!

Bike gods will be pleased with your work. Have you already visited the Classic & Vintage forum, lots of similar rescue stories there?
