Hi there,

My name is Bill and I live in West Linn Oregon, a suburb of Portland. I'm 68 and have been riding since most of you were born. Switched from mountain biking to road about 10 years ago when I couldn't get any of my friends to ride anymore cause they got old. . I didn't.

I just picked up an 82 Colnago Superissimo that I'm restoring. I've got the components and new decals, now looking for chrome and paint. I'll post pics when it's finished. I also bought a Bertoni as a donor bike because it had a complete period correct Dura Ace group,which I've switched to the Colnage. The Bertoni is for sale either as a frame or complete bike.

Great to be a member here.
