Avid 3-speed nut from Norway - signing in!

Gentlemen and gentlewomen!

I'm a bike collector and restorer currently living in Oslo with my wonderful fiancee.

My equipment: A basement full of Norwegian 1930s to 1970s commuters, mostly Øglænd (The Schwinn of Norway) but also some rarer gems.

I've got a full-blown 1972 Schrøder racer, with Reynolds tubing, Dia-Compe brakes, Sugino Mighty Tour crank, Mavic rims, Campa headset and hubs and full SunTour V gruppo. Previously owned by Gunnar Knudsen, brother to Knut Knudsen who won the 4 km in the München games.

My favorite bikes are the Gresvig-produced Diamants up until 1955, when they sold out to Swedish Crescent and became a cheapo brand. The best of the crop is my 1941 "Modell nr. 11" in near-new condition, sky blue with pristine, silver pinstripes.

I've been lurking on this forum for about a year, and finally worked up to gall to join. Mostly because people were slagging the Norwegian DBS (ack!) and endlessy ask for help with their weird bottom brackets.

Cheers

Johan

Welcome to the forums. I know nothing about vintage bikes, Classic and Vintage Bicycles section would be fun for you I bet.
