    Vintage bikes are a fun way to get into it at an affordable price.

    Hey Scotter:

    Try Fastenal or maybe copper state. Both should be Loctite dealers

    I just missed Copper State today. I thought of calling them at about 12:10. They closed at noon. I'll try again Tuesday, along with Fastenal.
