New From Savannah

Hi,

I am a new guy from Savannah Georgia, or Bath Maine depending on which time of the year it is. I enjoy old road bikes especially Treks, I have a 600 series and a 720. Also the 2200 which I'm planning to sell. I restored a few bikes including a prewar Schwinn and a 1972 Bob Jackson.

I've owned at least four other high-end Treks, including a 760 and 660.

My first road bike was an early 80's all Campy Nuovo Record 710 - bought it new.

Thanks,

Gerry

Thanks, the 10 post is 2 days real pain. Hopefully a good reason for it.

I was there 92-94 and 99-2001. We still live just outside the old front gate in Habersham Woods.

Please don't tell me you were in 1/75th

I miss Hunter. It was actually a nice little base. And Savannah is a cool area. Mighty 8th Museum is a must-see.

Welcome! And yes, the ten post/two days requirement is to discourage spammers. You don’t see a lot of spam here, and this limitation is one of the main reasons. Just have patience (and join in on the discussions!) and you’ll be able to post pics.
