Old Rider - new to Forum .. Thanks

I live in Englewood, Florida .. have always loved bikes , but haven't really ridden much in 20 years .. I do look for old bikes ( good buys ) that should be preserved for those who appreciate them.

I bought a new Raleigh Super Course in 1974 .. and have been looking to replace it since my wife sold in in a moving sale (cry) ..

I just found a 1972 International Raleigh .. I plan to ride it for a while, until something as special comes along. Beautiful, original bike - 'cept for the new tires and chain. Serial #G1207.

I will try to post a couple pix .. and details are below ..

Thanks for the forum .. jack

oops - can't post pix maybe doesn't work with Google Chrome?

Here's a link for an Idea ..:

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
