If you do, hopefully you’ll find something of interest on this site. I love bikes and have ever since I was a kid. When I’m not riding one, I like researching and writing about them, and dreaming about the next vintage bike that I’d love to have in my collection. Although modern bikes are great, I’m drawn to vintage bikes from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s – the tail end of the golden age when high end bicycles didn’t come out of a mold, but were still handmade out of steel, sometimes by a frame builder working alone in a shed in his backyard. This was the era when a professional quality bicycle could be bought for less than $1500.
