hello from san francisco!

hello! my grandfather taught me how to repair my own bicycle when i was a child. since then i have done most all of my repairs with his tools and a few i have collected on my own over the years. i have but simple hand tools and no training, but i take 100% pride in my builds and repairs. i hope to learn a lot from this site, meet nice people, see great bicycle builds and hear interesting stories. My first road bike which i still use to this day is a fillet brazed Viscount �rospace frame, which is currently under a repaint and rebuild. I will have pics up soon(with details) if people are interested in seeing my pride and joy. Happy riding!

Hello shoebox5, welcome to Bike Forums! When you get the Viscount rebuilt, I'm sure the Classic & Vintage forum crowd would appreciate the pics.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
