Hi from Belgium

Hi guys ,

I started a few months ago to buy and restore bikes.
And , probably a lot of you , know it's paradise but can be a PITA sometimes.

So here i am to learn from you and ask for help.

I always been into BMX and in general jumping bikes, but since a few months i have a soft spot for vintage bikes..

Currently i own a WeThePeople bmx , a 6KU fixie , a Specialized P1 , YT Capra is coming very soon but i'm here for the old man i acquired a few weeks ago. ( First thread is for him!)

The main reason why i'm here is vintage bikes , as all the others are pretty straightforward and i grew up with it.

Since i saw a friend of mine restoring a Cinelli Super Corsa , and driving it like some people are driving their old Rolls Royce's on a sunday , i thought i could be a nice addition.


I wish you all a great end of the year!


Arnaud

Welcome! I have a wonderful old bike from Belgium, a Royal Nord President circa 1956. No one knows how it got to Canada but it is a beautiful bike.
