Hi

Hi guys,
I'm a Norwegian Double bass and bass guitarist based in London.
I recently got a lot of spare time due to the coronavirus, so I have decided to restore my old bike.
So expect a "help me to identify my bike" pretty soon.

Welcome! I joined for the same reason - time on my hands to get my old bike back to tip-top shape. Good luck!

Seems like a lot of people suddenly got the idea of restoring their bike so they can get out of the house as quick as possible after the quarantine
