Here's a comprehensive list of the better how-to articles in this blog. More will be added as time goes by. I've also noticed while going thru these that some are dated and need some tuning up! I didn't realize until now how big this thing is getting and I have my work cut out for me. What am I saying? This is not work, it's actually a lot of fun, enjoy.

Thanks so much for all the time and effort you have put into this. I recently scored a rusted treasure at a garage sale, but had no idea what would be involved in bringing it back to a rideable state. I think I just might give it a go and attempt to do the repairs myself now that I have found your resources!

You are all very welcomed. Celeste, remember that practice makes perfect and that you really can't break anything you can't fix. Good luck with your bike rescue and send us pics when you're done.
