Greetings

Hi there. I'm glad to be a member of the Forum. I'm a senior citizen, and a long time bike enthusiast. My first bike was a Freddie Grubb which was stolen after a mere six weeks. The next was a Paris Tour de France which I kept for five years before giving way to the temptation of a motorcycle.The motorcycle did not last long and when I was offered a Moorson Twintube I couldn't resistthe weird looks.So began my collecting of odd bikes. Through the years I've had many bikes passing through my hands, but as time goes by and space gets taken up by lawn mowers and son's car parts, the bike collection diminishes. Never mind, I still have enough parts to assemble four of the best.
