i have to say to any newbies to this list - watch out! this list is dangerous for your wallet. after 'hanging-out' here for a bit over a year, i've 'acquired' 3 vintage bikes in the last 5 months, in various stages of restoration and ride-ability that i didn't think i 'needed' until coming here and reading about everyone else's cool bikes.
my latest procurement is an 81/82 gios super record. i bought it on ebay off the original owner a couple weeks ago. this is actually the most rideable and requires the least restoring out of the box.
next time there is a vintage ride around here, maybe i can actually go and ride something that fits.
be careful out there.
