Hello from north Essex

Hi all, getting old and need to exercise more but have some difficulty running/distance walking now so want to get out on 'unpowered' two wheels. I think road is my preferred option as I green lane on motorbikes. I have taken advice from one member to dig out a couple of old road bikes in the rafters of my garage to see if they will meet my needs and make use of at least one 60/70's classics. A Claud Butler and an Elswick Mistral. Both seem original and well within the realms of a home service/overhaul. |That said I will no doubt need some pointers from members:ohmy: Grateful for future support and already finding interesting posts and threads on here.

There's lots of people on here that know their classic bikes so I'm sure you will get some good tips of they do need fixed up.

Hopefully they just need a little clean and oil though!

Hello and :welcome: to the forum.

When you can please post some pics, sound interesting. You should be able to get them back on the road with a few bits and bobs.

You'll find it tough at first but you'll soon get used to it.
