I am new to bikes, having never owned one I am probably starting by biting off more than I can chew, however I have a history of doing that and then chewing like hell as the saying goes.
I have found a deep attraction the old 40's model Big fours and would very much love to own one. I am looking at riding it regularly and probably to work on occasions so it would be having to handle peak hour well. Basically are these a bike that people just buy to put in a garage and look at or are they still a bike you can get on and go.
I haven't made up my mind whether I will get a restorer or something is ready to ride yet but I guess I just want to know what people think of them. I have attached a picture of the model I am looking at. ( it was love at first sight. I love them)
