    New member, researching a bike brought me here

    Hi all,

    My Dad gave me his 1970's road bike when I went of to college and I've been keeping it running ever since. I thought I would look up where this bike came from, and that brought me to this forum:

    and this:

    I was fascinated by these stories and old pictures, especially the 1972 Spiegel catalog! I saw that there were some other people interested in this old "bike boom" era Italian road bike, so I posted links to some pictures of mine.

    I sold my car a year ago, and have been using this bike to get to work daily. It's only about two miles, and there is a bike trial from my place almost directly to work. I'm loving passing all those cars stuck in traffic lights!

    Anyway, thanks Bike Forums for providing me with some information on my Dad's old bike, it was really cool to read about it.

    Best wishes,
    Rob

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Glad to know that you are keeping a good bike rolling. Welcome to BF.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.
