First of all, I'd like to thank whomever started this thread. As a wannabe first time bike owner, clicking through every page of this thread has been VERY inspiring. It's actually kind of opened my eyes to what the possibilities are for great finds. I know as a first time bike owner (hunter), with very little mechanical skills, most of these bikes which took a lot of you all's blood, sweat and tears (and money) probably wouldn't be the best choice for a first timer but I saw a few in there that were in good mechanical order when bought, so I see there is hope.
I live about 10 miles from Barber's motorsports park here in Birmingham Alabama and I'm saving my pennies up for next years vintage bike festival (which I've attended in the past) where there are literally hundreds of old bikes for sale. My plan is to save up until that festival and go see what I can find for a grand or so.
Thanks again for the great thread which I will be following from now on.

Spent several hundred dollars, Not counting beer to turn it into a $500 bike
