Hello from Queensland Australia

Hello, I'm recently retired from work and was looking for cheap bike to ride for my morning coffee, I came across a $20 fixer upper and found lots of great advice on doing it up here on the forums. I really enjoyed the process! Now I've found two old Mixte bikes I'm going to tackle, thanks everyone,cheers Glenn.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Glad you're having fun fixing and riding the bikes. Since you're retired I'm guessing you're older so why not stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the other old timers. I'm 72 and hang out there.
And to meet local folks why not check out the Australia-New Zealand regional subforum?
Have fun.
