Does anyone know of any good web sites to do research on older bikes? Been fixing bikes for a few years but just recently got into vintage bikes. I want to find out all i can right down to frame makers.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions seeking product/service/learning material recommendations or item valuations are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead describe the situation or specific problem you are trying to solve, or try chatting about it in The Velodrome." – Chris H, Argenti Apparatus, mattnz
There are several forums that cater to vintage bikes, one of the best in my humble opinion is the Cabe - The Classic and Antique Bicycle Exchange
There is an exponential amount of knowledge on there and the people really know their stuff.
Another is Classic Vintage Cycles
Lastly bikeforums.com has vintage section as well
These are the 3 i am most familiar with, however I'm sure there are many more. There are a couple dedicated websites as well but most are bicycle specific such as vintage BMX, or only Muscle bikes, or Schwinn's.
As much as i hate to say it google with be your best friend for this but the CABE is a good forum to start on, it will likely lead you to other resources as well. Hope this helps.
