Hello from Austin, TX!

Hey guys! Hopefully I will have reasons to come through on occasion, because I really like this forum. I need to be working, but I just got stuck for over an hour. I can usually control myself better than that, but I was really enjoying the different threads.

Anyway, I was born and raised in Houston, but haven't been able to leave Austin more than a couple of months, since I moved here in 2012. I love it, and I wish I could have grown up here!

Man! I remember when I went to bars, the river, parties...! We were drinking and having a great time! I turn 50, and all I need is a good bike forum in Austin, TX, and I'm loving life!! What in the world happened to me?!?

That's a little depressing. I think I'll take a nap when I get done introducing myself.

Anyway, I am here because someone gave me a vintage bike frame, and I was curious as to how much it's worth, and find out a little more about that type of bike.

It's nice to meet everyone!

Welcome to the forum. Be sure to post some details of the frame. You can also post links to pictures if you have them...

I have visited Austin many times and like it very much, except the traffic. I have a cat, Squeeks, that is from the streets of Austin. A friend of mine adopted her when he was sick, I adopted the cat when he passed 2018. She is now a Frankford, DE cat. I LOVE Franklin's BBQ. Enjoy the ride, be safe.
