Hi! I'm a newby. I have a bunch of bikes on the side of the house I claimed I would restore. After receiving a healthy badgering by my nephew, who wanted me to give him my old bike frames so he could weld them together into a makeshift bikerack/art project, I've decided it was indeed an embarrassment and now is the time to restore some of 'em.
So there's a Raleigh Colt, an old Schwinn Speedster, and a Huffy men's coaster brake bike with an "english style" frame. All three of these should be great for riding around the flat college town we live in. I currently also own an Electra Rat Rod, another Electra cruiser with a 7-speed shimano coaster-brake-hub, a Schwinn Heavy Duti, and a Schwinn Cruiser 6. There are some others there.. some may get turned into a bike rack if my nephew ever calls me back.. it got a bit heated.. Oh well..
Bikes should eventually be ridden, I think. So even the cheap ones may be better used by getting ridden. Surely some old posts could be used as a bike rack.
Anyway, a friendly HI to the Bike Forum!
