Any Sonoma County vintage English bike lovers out there?

Show yourselves & your ride!

My lovely Hercules, still trying to date the lady. The hub indicates 1960, but the bike itself must be older.


[please ignore the incomplete Columbia in the background. ]

PS. Any Santa Rosa riders wanna get together sometime? I'm also looking for some restoration advice as I'm super new to this, so if you've got any please share.

Hey Spencer, I used to live in SR and Graton! I lived just a mile or two away from Annadel, but never knew enough to go riding there, darn it!

I am happy to see it looks as if you found someone to help with the resto . And some friendly riders to boot!

Awesome! I love Graton, used to deliver pizza there all the time. Grew up in SR though.

Hopefully!

That would be awesome. Definitely need to pick someone's brains.

Will do at some point.
