Hello from SoCal!

Hi All,
I've been lurking here a while as I learn about old bikes and I guess its time to join in. My daily driver is a late 80's Davidson Impulse and my weekend bike is a 1984 Colnago Super. I've also got a 70's/80's Allegro to build up and I just bought a mystery frame (because I wanted the Zeus 2000 group hanging on it) and that turned out to be a painted over Exxon Graftek. So I've got a restoration to work on for the winter. I look forward to participating in the forum.
Cheers!

Hi there! I'm actually in LA, sorry for the confusion, I always stuff up these nicknames. Perhaps I should have said Beach Cities, gotta ask a realtor, LOL. I did once do a Santa Monica to San Diego and back bike trip and your city is lovely. Hope to do another trip like that one day.

Hi! These are mostly bikes I've fallen into, as I'm sort if a bargain hunter. I could have just as easily ended up with a Mondonico, a Casati, a Motobecane and an Atala if I had zigged instead of zagged at various times.
