I best start off with an intro/a bit about me.
I'm Matt, I'm from Brisbane and I'm another fixed gear enthusiast slowly getting into all the other forms of riding. I've got a few bikes;
1970(ish) Hoffy Track (main bike)
2010 Giant Anthem X1
Schwinn Fixie (gave it away)
Cramerotti Road Bike / TT Bike (Unsure, that's another story)
and I also have a Low// from San fran on it's way in a few months.
I'm currently undergoing a big restoration project of a bike I recently purchased.
I happen to have stumbled across the frame by chance and through the grape fine found out some more information on the frame. I won't go into too much detail as Rob Cobcroft from http://veloaficionado.com/ intends to do a bit of writing on it all, but that's for another day also.
I'm currently trying to find sources or gauge some ideas where I might track down or even try and find some of the following items.
I need a full Galli groupset (brakes, levers, chainset, seatpost, pedals, rims) from around 1985 (Road) and an Araya Disk wheel (rear) to go with it for the other parts.
Ideally if anyone has a set or parts, you can get in contact at personal (at--) mattl.com.au with pictures.
otherwise a pm here would be great.
Over the next week I'll throw some more photos online of my bikes and get involved in the forum, though I just wanted to get this post up whilst I was actively thinking about it all.
