Hi Searjeo,

It's been a pleasure to read your thread and I will take a keen interest in the progress of your Gillott. It is a respected brand and a good place to start an interest in vintage and classic bikes. It sounds like you 'have the bug'.

I too, started an interest in bikes at a similar age. I'm now 55 and have never regretted my passion for bikes. You meet some wonderful people and will share an interest that can be a life long adventure.

Being Australian, I started my interest with a well respected Australian made bike. Unfortunately I sold it off to purchase another bike. I wish I still had that bike, I loved it and it took me to many places. I would like to be able to look back at it to see how far I have come.

You seem to have a good 'feel' for bikes and are asking all the right questions. This forum is a wonderful resource as there is always someone with great advice and experience in the things you are interested in.

Have a great time with your Gillott,

Gary Fountain.
