Hello All!

I've been an observer of this forum for quite some time. I'm currently residing in Louisiana but I've moved/lived all over the U.S.

I used to repair old Schwinn cruisers when I was younger for fun but when I left for college that all ended. Recently, I've picked up my father's old 10 speed (yes, I know, it's actually a 5) Montgomery Ward, similar to the Open Road, in the garage and been riding it since. I am going to try to update/fix it up. Something I've recently added to my bucket list is doing RAGBRAI, whether or not it will be with that old bike, who knows!

I've included a photo of the bike just for fun.
