Bonjour de France. Don' worry, I'll try to write in English....

Hello. I'm Patrick, 53 years old. I love all kind of 2 wheels. I'm involved in restoring old bicycles ( after car and motorbikes). These past years, I've restored a lot of clip on engines on bicycles and Solex, if you're interested you can visit my blog: Moteur-Auxiliaire.
Since a few years, I practice a very little bit on good 50,s 650B randonneur.
I restored with a lot of pleasure 650b randonneur 30,s to 70's and also track and race bicycle.
I've also some british bicycle, most of them 3 speeds, and big German "Fahrrad".
I'm always happy to know more people in the world to share my passion. And, also if I can help about French bicycles: Trades, components, and so on.

An Automoto 650B 50's randonneur and a La Perle 700c 1947/48 race bike.
Sometimes you'll have to excuse me for the mistakes in English and my ignorance of how to manage with internet and forums. I feel better with tools than behind a keyboard.
Alors, un grand bonjours à tous

Bonjour. Ca va?

J'aime la belle France. Nous avons une maison secondaire pas loin de Mortagne au Perche (61).

Hi John. Merci pour ton Français. But I must write in English. Congratulation. We're neighbours. Mortagne le Perche is at only 125 Miles from where I live. Nice bikes that you've. I'll be very happy to see your Flying Scot continental. Your Holdsworth must be also great. It's funny, I'm used to speak from French trade all the while.....and I discover that some bicycles was build in the other countries in the world .
Also, I need a little help.
How can I write my profile?
What it's realy group and how to choose one ( or how o be choose?).
And, I feel alone How can I make some friends
Merci et à bientôt.
Patrick

Hi Patrick,
We spent 3 months in France this summer with our VTT and road bikes (my Supercorsa and my wife's Orbea Orca). The Flying Scot has not touched French soil yet, but will when we move permanently (hopefully soon)

To add your profile, you need to click on "My profile" at top right, and then "About me" the small pencil signs (les stylos) allow you to edit (I think!)

Hey, you think to come and live in France Me and wife have a wish to leave France and to go and live in Brighton UK. I love this town, it's so cool. The only little trouble is the sun. Even if we actually leave near Paris, I'm from Provence in south of France. But, here, people are more and more aggressive, never happy, "Ils font tous la gueule" That was a bit rude. sorry.
So, I'll try to do something with "my profile".
Cheers
