Hi from Arizona

Hi...I was looking over one of the "what was your first bike" threads, and I can almost remember where I got started. Age 5 or 6, mid 1960s, a blue bike with training wheels and solid tires. Which I eventually wore out.

I've had a few other bikes over the years, but my interest comes and goes...usually goes...to old cars, hot rods, and other fun machines.

But I found a late 70s Centurion at a yard sale last week, so I've been surfing the net to learn more about it, and how an old geezer like me might put it to good use. So far, this forum has been a big help, just reading old posts.

Anyways, it's good to be here...

thanks!

I did put new tires and brake blocks on the Centurion, and I've been riding it around the neighborhood. I cleaned, lubed and adjusted the wheel bearings yesterday.
