Greetings from Sydney, Australia

Hi all,

Just joined the forum.

Got into cycling around a year ago. Been riding several bikes including city, mountain, road bike. I had a Trek 1.9 Road Bike but started getting interested in vintage steel bikes. Sold my Trek and picked up a steel bike from 70s. It's great to ride, I completed a 100km ride a couple of weeks ago without any issues, except for a flat tyre.

I stripped the bike and will be rebuilding it with fresh paint, will post updates in the vintage section.

Here is a photo!
