Love this site. Been lurking around for awhile and decided to join in. I have picked up several (13) yardsale bikes over the last few years and am now starting to completely strip them down and restore them when time and money allows. Anyway....just wanted to say hello!

Why hello and welcome to the website. Smile Restoring bicycles is an incredible experience and fun art or hobby whichever one chooses to call to it. We have all done a few or more and list them in the Show Off Your Bike thread (here.. http://forums.bikeride.com/forum-36.html ) which you are more then welcome to post a thread with pictures of before/during/after shots of each bike. That is totally up to you and any questions you may have post them. Glad you joined and enjoy the site,

Cheers,
Bill
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
