    I am getting back into cycling after a long absence. I am working on getting my 1990 Davidson Impulse and 1974 Schwinn Super Sport roadworthy again. I bought both of these new. That should give you some idea of my age.

    I also have 2 of the BMW folding mountain bikes built by Montague. My wife has a 1972 Schwinn Collegiate and my 11 year old son has some sort of little mountain bike.

    I have also gotten the idea that I have to get some sort of old school steel lugged framed road bike. Something with chrome forks and forged drops. Maybe tubular rims and sew ups?
