Would like to encourage as many vintage buffs as possible to attend the Vintage rides put on by Sterling Peters here in San Diego each month. Each ride seems to be better than the last and there are always several neat bikes to see and lots of pleasent conversation and trading etc. that goes on. We are solidifying into a stable and friendley group and would like to see the North County faction remain a part of it all.
Set your sights also on the West Coast event that Chuck Schmidt is organizing, it is certain to attract a large number of exceptional bikes that will never make it to the East Coast for the Cirque on account of shipping concerns, etc.
Glad to be part of this group and looking forward to many good times that are sure to be in our future. I feel for the first time the vintage bike communitity is comming together in a very personal way that can only benifit us all and be the source of pleasure and education for everyone.
