I wish there was some sort of form or template to fill out for introduction type info, as I have a tendency to ramble on when not properly constrained! ... I have been a "vintage lightweight" enthusiast since about 1972 (before they became vintage.) My favorite bikes are Masi's, particularly early Carlsbad GC's, Prestige's and early 3V's... roughly the early 70's to mid-80's timeframe.

My current stable includes 2 1973/4 Carlsbad GC's, a 1982 Prestige, and a 1984 3V. Also own a 1982 Colnago Super and a 1981 Mercian "King of Mercia"...my beaters.

I managed to infect my wife with the enthusiast bug when we first met--at that time she owned a poorly assembled Royce Union 10-speed on which she had crashed and broken her wrist when a spoke-mounted reflector became lodged in the fork. I promptly set about ordering a Bob Jackson racing frame for her from Cycl-ology, and outfitted it with a full Campy NR groupset. I will never forget the smile on her face when she took it out for her first test ride! Her current stable of bikes includes the Jackson (1980), a 1982 Calzone (Columbus KL), a 1983 Cinelli Supercorsa, a 1984 Masi Prestige (Columbus SLX), and a 1989 Colnago Classic.

Most bikes built after about '89 I barely recognize as bikes!!

"The ones that got away" included: 2 additional early 80's Prestige's, a Cinelli Tokyo, a Pogliaghi Italcorse, and a second Cinelli Supercorsa.

I have joined the list in "digest mode"... so will receive and peruse(sp?) the posts on a periodic basis.
