H, new from Lewis co NY

Hello all. New member from upstate ny. I'm a 50 year old guy that smoked and partied for too long and need to get in shape. I'm kink of a vintage freak and collect old chainsaws, outboard motors and coleman lanterns. Used to ride a lot in late 70's, early 80's. Got away from biking for a long time but have recently been putting around a bit. Right now I have a Trek 820 I got for 50 bucks that I am using to get legs conditioned to pedaling again. I am searching for an older roadbike and have used this site a lot for info. Decided to join up. Seems to be a lot of very knowledgeable folks here.
So, that's me. Hope I can learn something here and when I start collecting old road bikes ( I know I will, it's inevitable), perhaps I can be of some use on this forum. Thanks!

Hi, quiver. That's great that you have a decent bike to "get into gear with".
Feel free to browse around!
