Greetings from Finland!

Hi everybody.
I've been reading this forum a while now and since I finally joined this happy family it probably is polite to introduce myself. First I have to say sorry to all of you native english-speakers, since english isn't my native language I might make quite a few funny mistakes so try to bear that.
I'm a kinda newbie with bikes, used to tinker with them a lot when I was younger and had few really nice bikes but somehow forgot the whole fun in it for twenty years and there were many years that I didn't own a bike at all. But when my dad gave me his old commuter-mtb for me and I had to do some fixing I remembered all the fun and joy in tinkering and I guess got hooked. Again.
I'm a big fan of vintage and retro, mostly road and mountain bikes but also love ratrods, clunkers and cruisers. My main ride is "vintage" Mongoose Sycamore, somewhere between '92-'94, that has been modified a bit to suit city and road use. For next summer I have a project to build an old Finnish road bike (Tunturi) from the early 80's, it still needs wheels, paint and some little stuff.
