Cold and Wet in Portland

I have an 83 Bianchi Nuova that I bought new. Not a great bike for an old guy. Haven't ridden it in 30 years as I got married and had a kid with a disability. Looking to sell it and get something a little more appropriate for the roads up here and my old body. I guess I'll see how that goes. Cheers!

Welcome. I was in Portland a few days ago and it was rather hot and dry. Don't be too quick to sell that bike. I recently "renewed" my 1986 Bianchi to something more appropriate to my old body. But getting a new bike is probably a good thing.

Post a pic of your current one when you are able (I think you need 10 posts or so).

Welcome!

Which Portland? Maine, Oregon, or Michigan?

Michigan??? I didn't know they had one too. I'm from the home of the naked bike ride, Portland, Oregon.
