New old guy!

Glad to be here! Just got back to biking after 40 years away, with a new to me Raleigh Super Course from 1985. I'll post pics when I can.
Jim

I'm mystified why they make it so hard to "qualify" here, I was posting pics day one at retrobikes?

That’s a tall bike! (And a short Pug). They’re both looking good.
Had my retro bike out last night for a classic ride along the river. Enjoy the forums. You probably have already checked out ‘Classic and Vintage’.

Thanks Mitch!
It's a 63cm frame, almost too much for my size. Checking out a 1994~1996 Cannondale R900 this afternoon to see if it's a better fit at 60cm.

Thanks! Much as I hate to say it my Raleigh my go on the block one of these days. I love it, but picked up a basket case Cannondale R900 on Sunday. Took it to the LBS Monday for a tire and tuneup, but it'll need to be stripped down and refinished before I decide what to do.

Welcome to bike forums. The reason for requiring a minimum post count before posting pics is to reduce spam.
