Hello I'm old but new

Hi all, I'm Dickey from North La ( the state) and I'll only be found on the classic and vintage sites. I got started as an adult riding in 1972. Still at it but not nearly the miles of yrs gone by. To me nothing is as pretty as a clean cut head tube or a nice looking seat stay with gold leaf pin stripping around the lugs! My collection of bikes are all riders, no wall hangers. They are 3 1973-74 Motobecane Grand Records, all with full 531 and Nervex lugs, a Classic 1973 Moto Le Champion, a 1981 Moto Team Champion, a 1984 BridgeStone 700, and a 1985 Trek 520 with all braze-ons and long relaxed specs. I love working on bikes as much as riding.

Welcome.
Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old farts" and the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals.

We'll need photos in C & V if they aren't already there.

So, you like Motos? I have only one Moto, a 1970s Grand Jubile mixte. A lovely machine, with barcons .

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
