And so it starts...

I had an old funky bike in the '60s. Rode that until it literally fell apart.
Turned 18 bought a car, haven't ridden since except a couple of times to the store to buy parts for the car.
Now at the ripe old age of 58 I acquired a 70's vintage Sears Free Spirit trike.
Hoping to get this back in operating condition since I now live in a very small town.

Ah the joy of NOT having to remember to put your foot down.

Jeff

Welcome Jeff. 58? You're just a kid. I'm 66 and there are plenty of folks here older than me.
Stop by the 50+ forum and introduce yourself to the other old timers.
