Trying to insert the same image here using the BBS "Insert Image" button

Just post random nonsense like everybody else does on here.

Ask the mods to let you post in the Political Forum, go over there, ***** a bit, and than you can post pics.

As I understand it, newbies are able to use the Bike Forums attachment software. See my post above (3). Just don't quote my note

Once you find the link, it is pretty self explanatory. By default it will dump your photos to the end of your post, although you can move them anywhere in your post by manually typing:
[Attach] (image ID number) [/Attach]
with the appropriate image ID number. I always like to use JPG images.

If you've hit your maximum daily posts, you may still be able to edit existing posts, I think.

My nonsense is not random. It is well thought out and planned to elicit more nonsense. YMMV. My 2. OTOH...

Just use an image hosting site. Not photobucket.

You've actually uploaded a bunch of photos to your album.

Unfortunately I don't see any new posts that the photos go with.

Is that a mid 80's model Cinelli with Campagnolo "brifters"?

That's what I was attempting to find out. There were several posts indicating that one should post a few times and then the restrictions to post pictures will be lifted. I understand that's not proper protocol but I did not see any other way around it. Anyhow, I will attempt to post additional pictures in the vintage forum. I recently picked up this bike and it looks like 80s Italian steel but unfortunately someone gave it a flat black rattle can paint job and removed all of the decals.
