Top of the morning to ya!

Hi All,

I'm from Southsea right at the bottom of the UK. Ive always been into bikes, I have a particular soft spot for vintage road bikes as I'm sure many people do.

I am Currently riding a beautiful Orange custom with a 90s Ultegra groupset, originally built for the Orange MTB team to train on, and never produced for the public, given to me by a family member who used to work for Element back in the day.
I also have a Peugeot Carbolite 103 which has been demoted to the garden for now by my better half :-(
and also a Specialzed Allez 2013 which I'm considering stripping and repainting.

Im casually collecting older bikes to restore so have joined up to dig through bikeforums for tips and tricks on restoration, good vintage bikes to go for etc and basically to try and suck up some knowledge!

My first "adult" bike was a Peugeot Carbolite 103.
