    New member getting back into riding

    Hi folks!
    I'm a new member, getting back into riding (I used to bike to work every day and fell out of the habit after moving/getting a remote job). Currently taking a build-a-bike class and fixing up a late 90s Bianchi. Until that's done I'm riding my trusty Kawaski bike (which I'll post pics of once I hit the 10-count).
    Looking forwarding to spending more time around here!

    Um, I think you are lost.

    I googled Bianchi. It seems to be some sort of bicycle
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Please put up pics of your Bianchi, too. I can't find anything after the 1960's.
    Intrigued i am.

    If you want to get your post count up quickly just jump into a political thread and stir the pot.

    Thankfully the 'off-topic' section doesn't count towards your post count.

    They're still going. Even into the 90's they were building classical lugged steel frames. MmmmmMMm

    Cant see any lugs from here

    But the Suzuki behind it I'd wager is a GT of some capacity judging from the mirrors and hand grips.

    You know? I think it's a 750. Look at the mirror antivibration mounts.

    Can you tell it's a Friday afternoon?
