Long time bike enthusiast

Been a bike enthusiast for a few years. First road bike was a 1972 Sutton Supreme bought new. Then a 1980 Nishiki International also bought new. After a long lapse, bought a 1998 Softride Powerwing, that I upgraded substantially. Then bought a Colnago World Cup cyclocross bike for gravel. Then retrofitted a 1970's Raleight Professional into a twon bike with a Sachs 5-speed internal hub. Have also retrofitted a 1970's Batavus Professional into a gravel bike for my wife. Latest acquisition was a 2001 Softride Roadwing that I have upgraded to 2x10 Ultegra.

Howdy and Welcome.

Bought a used Nishiki for $15. It was fast.
