Howdy all from Canada, old schooler in the house :)

I guess I`m not alone.
They call me Ant, I`m in Caledon, Ontario, Canada.
Well my journey began about 3 years ago.
I started buying up every old school bmx bike that I could find to restore.
Then I worked my way up to mountain bikes & road bikes.
Sometimes I think that I have a compulsive disorder but it`s what I enjoy doing.

Today I managed to put together my first single speed but still have to add the brake.
Hoping to learn more about restorations and more, plus my 6 year old son seems to be interested also.
I have to admit that at the time being I`m more off a collector and restorer than a rider, but I think that will change soon,

Hoping to get out on the road some day.
Cheers
Ant
