    New Scottish Member

    I keep clicking links into this forum when doing Google searches and find it a great source for information so though I may as well join up and see the pictures and attachments rather than miss out. Hope I can contribute as well as take away from your vast knowledgeable expertise.

    I'm John and based in the West of Scotland, my passions are 1st, classic cars and 2nd, road bikes from the 80s era. I used to cycle around 250 miles a week just for the hell of it, then a career change 23 years ago put a stop to all that and the bike was put in the garage out of sight and out of mind. I recently started cycling again and although I'm a lot older and not as fit as I was I'm really getting a lot out of my cycling.

    I still have my original Peugeot P10L which is the only new bike I have ever owned, I bought the Peugeot around 1985/6 and over the next few years updated all the Simplex components to the new fangled Shimano FH-1050/1051 Index System which was a relatively new concept back then. Today even after all the miles I clocked up on the Peugeot it still runs as it did when it was new and being made from Carbolite 103 is no weight weenie, but I enjoy the ride it gives and is still my most used bike.



    I went to a bike jumble and saw a box of 'bits' which was supposedly an Italian ALAN Super Record, so for the past few weeks I have been building it into a thing of beauty. I have to say I am might impressed with the outcome, still a few things to sort out but I managed to take it on its maiden ride on Sunday and clocked up 27 miles without a hitch.



    I also have a modern carbon road bike, a Focus Cayo 3.0 which is light and very very fast, possibly too fast for my old leg muscles but it gives me the incentive to push the pedals that little bit harder and hopefully will help me get back into shape

    Welcome, nice selection of bikes, you have the required white garage door for BF, but you may want to look at the alignment of the tire logos to the valves

    Welcome to BF, always great to have a Scotsman here. That is a nice stable of bikes, make sure you visit the Classic and Vintage Forum for others that share your love of the bikes from that era. The Alan is seriously beautiful.

    Thanks for the welcome guys, looks like I might have to remove and replace the tyres on the ALAN to line them up properly.

    Already posted a couple of older bikes in the Classic & Vintage section Bill

    Welcome!

    With the garage door and tyre label position issues out of the way, have the C&V crowd replied with the standard "that fork's bent" yet?

    Beautiful bikes, thanks for posting the pics.

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