Hello fellow bike nerds
A quick note to introduce myself as a new member.
My name is Matt, live in Brisbane in sunny Queensland Australia. Currently my most vintage bike is a Reynolds 531c road frame with the brand Clamont (mid 80s, made in Sydney by a bloke named Geoff Scott who previously called his bikes Gefsco).
However I am soon to be the proud owner of a 1978ish Raleigh 753 Team with SR group, (once I work out how to get payment to our mate from belgium bike garage on e-bay). I hooked up with the bike from a link on this site for the RdV frame that the same guy was selling. I got into cycling in 83 or 84, and as a passionate newcomer devored many of my friends Cycling Weekly archive from the late 70s onwards. So my current passion is bikes from this era just before the invasion of STI, carbon, Look pedals etc. Through the correspondence, links etc on this list I'm learning a lot about the earlier gear too.
Now to track down a pair of those leather Detto Pietros so that I can ride the new beasty.
