hi everyone;
I'm Robert Verre-Ho. I've been riding bicycles since 1954. My current bike is a yellow Fuji S-10-S of 1974 vintage. This is my 7th bike. My first bike was a brakeless 24in Columbia clunker dad bought used. My dad bought me a new Arnold Schwinn 1962 Continental coppertone ten speed, this big bike [I'm short and small!] I had used to go to school and later to work [at times]. It got stolen in 1992, so I had to get another new bike, a GT MTB, that I sold ten years later because I didn't like MTB's. I later had a succesion of crummy used bikes from thrift stores till this Fuji. My previous bike is an old 1980 Karamura mixte in red I have for ten years. This bike I've been teased at as it is a women's bike model and painted red, so I'll pass it on to my wife due to come overseas. I hated driving cars, so bike I go, plus bike racks on buses.

Welcome to the forums! I too had a bike too big for me when I was young, my Dad arranged it. I painted it green and changed out stuff like the seat and handlebars. This was back in the mid seventies. Good memories! But I never liked those cotter pins.
