Introduction me Newbie to forum :)

Hello everyone !
I'm from NYC 52 1/2 years old been riding since 2-3 years old on my tricycle . progressing to some small boy bike then a 20" Folding bike my father bought me in a Dept store in summer of 1971, where a Junkie stole it from me.a kind neighbor bought me a Ross stingray type fix gear to cover the stolen bike. at 7th grade I'm forever grateful to my late dad who purchase me my first 10 speed from Korvettes dept store in Herald Square . yes I remember my childhood frame by frame !

approx 1979 I bought my first serious bike from a school teacher, a Vincini approx $ 135.00 w/ tubeless , mostly campy valentino stuff , Weinmann brakes set , 1980 I bought a Legnano w/ mostly Campy group except the Universal brakes for $ 500 from a school mate who was going to Florida for college . I had to beg this guy for the whole summer to sell it to me when he left in august. he actually paid approx $ 1200 -1300 in 1977 & that was a Whopper tons of money back then. I still have both bikes & ride them frequently in warm weather. I also collect bikes but not buying lately due to space.

my collection consist of - 71 Schwinn 5 spd fastback restored .
75 Schwinn 5 spd thump shift orig.
71? Barracuda fix orig nos
39 Columbia superb dash bike repro.
70's Peugeot 10 speed model ? = daily rider
60's Bianchi 3 speed w/generator lights / orig pump / orig cond.=daily rider
64 Raleigh Sport 3 spd = was daily rider , now needs B/B grease re-pack & chain.
numerous other bikes that was bought & sold to make room.

Sorry for the long post , I got carry away : ) : ) so I'm really into all years / makes bikes.
I also collect other small collectibles etc . spare time in summer consist of going to old car shows/ swaps . bike swaps / antique collectible shows and yard sale of course.
I'm also a animal lover, have 2 rescues dogs Black Lab mix & Newfie / Retriever mix. I also help needy cats whenever I bump into them.
thanks for reading , hope is wasn't boring. Mason NYC Manhattan

Welcome Mason. The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum would love to hear about your bikes and see pictures of them.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
