I have met so many honest, helpful people on this list and I have only been around for less than a year. Everyone has to start somewhere and I'm glad I am learning from you guys! I can't wait to actually meet the folks face to face.

My best deal so far has been two big packages that were sent to me free of charge (from listers) to help me build my newly acquired 1970 Raleigh. It's not monetary value that really counts for me. Getting the parts and advice you need to help you along the way counts for so much.
