How to go about this... The emphasis on collecting bikes as perceived via t his site is racing bikes. Lightweights. So everybody has more or less the s ame stuf, more or less prestgious, more or less expensive. It's all from 19 30 to 1980 or thereabouts. But there's the early stuff. "Vade retro" and al l that stuff I hear, "that heavy junk is for guys like the wheelmen, and po or Europeans". So what about this, early, say 1900-1910 racrs aren't exactl y lightweight, but they are racing bikes nevertheless. Ever tried riding on e ? I didn't, until today. A mind blowing experience. Got some pics and the usual nonesense at the following link http://tiny.cc/zF1MI

Happy Christmas everybody !
