    Greetings.

    Hi all. New member first post here. I'm getting back into cycling after a 20 diversion. I started on a Benotto model 800 (got run over by a truck), then I rode a Bianchi Nuevo Racing Celeste for a while. I didn't want to make a big investment until I know I can still ride. I just picked up a Nishiki International with the paint splatter color. I also have a couple vintage bicks that I picked up and did some cleaning and light restoration on. A 1961 CoastKing Electra, a 1958 Schwinn Hornet, and a 1948 Monarch Super Deluxe. I've had a few others that were sold along the way.

    Looking forward to getting some expert advice from all you other bike enthusiasts.

    Sweet. Yeah this was my first NEW bike I got. My folks made me ride it on the grass for a few days thinking I would want to return it because it was an impulse buy.
