    New old guy in Ohio - vintage nut

    Just getting into bikes, probably some mild form of mid-life crisis

    I know nothing about bikes but am starting to learn.

    Couple of years ago thanks to Craigs List I picked up a blue 1980 Schwinn World Tourist 100% original, then a yellow 1973 Schwinn Super Sport with alloy wheels, both in superb condition, and bargain-priced. The yellow Super Sport was no doubt a replacement for the yellow Le Tour from my teen years!

    Then late last summer my brother-in-law gave me his 1973 Peugeot UO-8, which I've just started to restore and pimp out with vintage accessories, or at least period-correct new retro accessories. I'm all about aesthetics, and am making this one a period-correct and very French touring bike. Photos will be posted maybe in February in March of the completed restoration.

    On the other side of the spectrum, my wife has a 2013 Canondale Quick 4.

    Cheers!

    Bob
