Hi, I recently was given a bike by a good friend. No idea what kind of bike it is, appears to be spray painted florescent green then black. I know the gear shifts are labeled Shimano 200GS. A quick google tells me that it is really old.

I am really enjoying riding a bike again. So much that I am thinking to look at new bikes this next summer. So yeh, that is why I am here.

I am in the great Pacific-Northwest. Seattle area (kind of)

Welcome Karen to Bike Forums.
Use the old bike to learn and get in shape.

I started on a 25 year old bike. Road it 1500 miles

Welcome, Karen! If you post a photo of your bike in the Classic & Vintage forum, I bet they can help you identify it.

There is a women's forum you are eligible to gain access to after posting for a month. Send a PM to Siu Blue Wind (administrator) to get access.
