Hello from a new forum member!

My name is Mike and just wanted to introduce myself to fellow forum members. My interest is in older bicycles from the 70's (lugged steel road bikes). I am a full time bicycle commuter and currently own an early 70's Dawes Galaxy and a newly purchased Schwinn Paramount P-15 (1973 NOS). While not an expert, I've been around, ridden, restored quite a number of bicycles in my day and am currently modifying, refurbishing my Dawes frame. Will load a pic or two when finished. As for the Paramount, it was purchased from a former Schwinn dealer who had the bike in his inventory from 1973 and never sold it. It has been hanging on the wall of his shop for 37 years! What a find and the perfect frame size for me.
Anyway, look forward to future discussions with this forum's members.

Welcome Michael. Sounds like you'll fit right in with the C&V crowd. They love pics of old bikes.

Thank you, RonH. I, like you, rediscovered the joys of biking in my 50's after a 15 year hiatus. Don't know why I ever stopped (actually, I do. It was the 4th complete tear down and restoration of my '73 Dawes Galaxy) but love being back in the saddle. Actually turned in the license plate to my auto about a year ago and have never looked back.
