New to Bucks County PA and This Forum

Moved to New Hope PA from Los Angeles, and my Klein Bike Collection is still out West. So here in this River town I started collecting Vintage English 3 speeds. Specifically looking for 1920's-Early 1950's. Today I picked up a Attic Find Original Rudge Mens bike, and will be posting photos here after I post 10 times. I think it is 1930's-40's. Would love to have any feedback from other Rudge Collectors on good websites with vintage Rudge Info.

Thanks
Romulus

Welcome from another newbie here. You're in a scenic area for bike riding. There are a lot of marked bike routes. The only problem is so many of the roads are pretty narrow. Weekends mornings ought to help. Some nice hills right near you, especially if you go up the one just south of the dinosaur. Ought to be fun on the downside. I'm in a flat zone of FL at the moment.

The older bike I'm craving would be a Raleigh like I got as a kid in '64, it was $24. It was a perfect user bike and I think fully evolved.
