Hi. Hope I've put his in the right place...
Been into bikes since I was a schoolboy in S. London, hence the Herne Hill reference. Now I'm retired I've decided to do a bit of bike restoration and riding, trying to keep up with my sons in law...

Sadly I threw away my vintage road bike a few years ago and replaced it with a modern hybrid. Nice bike but not quite the same.

So my current mission is to:
1. Build an off-road fun bike
2. Build a classic racer a bit like my old Gillott with Campag gears, and tubs...

So far I've acquired a 1958 Carlton and an Ernie Clements frame plus a pile of bits...

Hey guys, Just signed up to the forums.
My real name is Richie, i`m from Scotland.

I`m here as i`m interested in owning/building/buying a classic steel bike, i have been on the Mercian frame builder app (that thing is addictive :-)) and have been looking at Bob Jackson`s website also but keeping my options open for a second hand bike or frameset also.

Hopefully with your help i`ll own my dream bike for hitting the country lanes.

Ayup retrobike folk,

1st post (on a forum ever) . . . I've joined as I'm finally starting to appreciate some of the older bikes, both road and MTB. Even attended my first cycle jumble at the weekend and left clutching various retro parts all for under a tenner. Bikes in various states of restoration and advice may be needed :-). Aside from newer bikes I have the following lurking at home:

1. 2000 Stumpjumper FSR Sworks with pace RC40 forks
2. Early 90s Marin Eldridge Grade ready for fresh powdercoat. Nice fluro orange forks and flexstem.
3 A couple of 70s MKM 531 road bikes. One good with 600 arabesque and the other in need of TLC and respray

Life's regrets . . . getting ride of:
1996 Specialized Stumpjumper with RC 36 forks
1980s Saracen Conquest with biopace chainset/brooks saddle . . . gave it away!

Right . . . I'm off to check out parts for sale for my Marin project.

Simon

Hi guys,

I'm Jamie; been riding classic bicycles out of choice for approximately 4 days...
I used to crash around on cheap tip find racers, which in retrospect were pretty cool retro bikes imo... Wish I still had one!

Bought a Hercules Commuter, for... Guess what? Commuting to work on.
That was where it all went terribly wrong.
