Greetings from NE Wisconsin

I'm new to the Forum, though I've searched it before and found lots of great information.
I enjoy vintage road bikes, the ones I couldn't afford when I was a teenager, but now I can pick them up for a song, repair them and ride them. My latest projects are an American Arrow/Superia (Belgium); a Bottecchia mixte, which my daughter loves; and a 1960's BSA 3-speed for my wife. Nice hobby and good exercise. I learned all about cottered cranks this summer (perhaps more than I wanted to know).
Thanks for a great website.
