Tom suggested that I introduce myself to the community as a new member.
What's to say? I am a recreational rider who stumbled onto your forum because of my interest in the Yankee Bicycle. I live in Aurora, Illinois near the home town of the Yankee Bicycle inventor, Royce Husted. Back in the '70's I read about his bike but could not afford to buy one. Sometime later, I bought one from Nordic Trac as the Fitness Bike and subsequently a second one on-line. Love them both and found your site as I did some additional research.
Keep on riding,
