I would like to put forward the suggestion to the guv and the mods, of perhaps furnishing wadsy with a special and much deserving banner under his name, for his hard work and constant commitment to the site, especially given the personnel circumstances.

I have to be honest here, he has constantly contributed to the forum, even when things cant have been easy, and brought us some stunning builds, that i suspect many of us would love to own, and we have all had the pleasure of viewing on his threads.

add to this the gentlemanly way in which he conducts himself when buying and selling here, he is a pleasure to deal with.

in my humble opinion, this deserves a special banner of some sort...!!!

keep it up wadsy my friend, you are a great example to other retrobikers in my opinion... :shock: 8)

Some very nice bikes there, I imagine there's a large number of hours invested putting those all together.

in that line of thought, maybe time has come to create
"the order of retrobike merit"
or
"retrobike knight"

Wadsy certainly deserves that honour :idea: :D

And I thought I was in too deep...! What an unbelievable thread, even if many of them have been sold on. Must show my missus all this, to put my own modest collection in proportion.

I found Retrobike when I contacted a mate back in the UK I used to ride with back in the day, and who is still in the bike trade, with advice about reburbishing my old Specialized after 15 years of no cycling. I'd bought some modern magazines and didn't recognise anything at all, other than the Specialized logo. He said "you should have a look at a site called Retrobike, there's loads of stuff there you'd recognise."

Abandon hope all ye who enter here... :twisted:
