Hi guys

Just a few lines to say hello and introduce my self as a vintage stuff lover. Since I can remember I like the objects made years before present time, a particular likes for the '50 design like cars, furnitures and appliances in general. In fact I use to say to my friends "... if you find something old who is not married with anyone you can bring it here and I will find a place ...".
So if you put together vintage and bicycles I am in heaven, since the very first time I visit RetroBike I been lurking enjoying what you guys did with those wonderful gems so I soon decided to start my own collection since one is not enough I just purchase a 1991 Cannondale SR600 from a friend of mine but I decided to updated (I posted it in the readers rides) to use it on regular basis but I have the hunch that it is just the beginning.
As a bicycle mechanic and handy man I hope I can contribute with the forum in some way in the near future.
Thanks from the sunny lands of Caracas Venezuela

hahaha very funny Richard where are you from and what kind of pictures do you want from Venezuela or maybe a particular kind of info.
Thanks for the welcome and here is some pictures of my last MTB travel last January to the mountains located in the Venezuelan Andes when we ride between 3500 and 4300 meters over the sea level. This is a very isolated part of the country but for sure very beautiful

Thanks,

Richard

Great pics, Esperame, and always good to see different perspectives. Pic 3 background looks like it's a superb 'hanging valley'. Any word on that?

Well as I said the area were the pics where taken is very remote and isolated, almost pristine in certain parts, in fact there are places you simply can not get there, we were over a path through the mountains and the valley in the the pic #3 is more far away than it appears is a kind of optical illusion for me the pics looks like some photoshop treated one but trust me those mountains are there :P
Hope this help
