'Vintage' Newbie

Hello All!
My name is Randy and I live in western Oregon. And yes as the title implies, I am a bit older than the hand-built, Reynolds 531, Harry Quinn frame that I am presently working on restoring and re-fitting with mostly period correct components. The Harry Quinn was built sometime in the early 60's, from what I have been able to discern from the "Q1366" serial number stamped into the lower part of the bottom bracket.
I have been riding bicycles since about 1969, but my interest in road bikes started around 1980. I commuted to work for several years on a Raleigh Pro, (the model with those beautiful "fastback" seat stays, likely built sometime in the mid 1970's.) Somehow, the handwork, lug detail, and all around charm of the, (big sigh....), now "vintage" bikes has always attracted me.
I look forward to getting the Harry Quinn, quite a steeply angled frame for its day, road bike back on the road, and have some fun along the way.
I am pleased to see so many folks active with their bicycles and participating here.
Respectfully,
Randy, a vintage newbie with a vintage road bike

Welcome Randy. The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum would love to hear about your bike and they love pics.

Welcome to bikeforums Randy!

I have a feeling you've already found the "Classic & Vintage" subforum here.
