The bloke at our tip is an animal and is liable to knock your teeth down your throat if you as much as look at something for more than 5 seconds in a skip or the metal container.I have missed some great bikes over the last 8 years
But on the plus side........
I have a regular customer from a garage in York,and he had a relation die a few months back.So he has been cleaning out the old lads house and has sent me odds and ends over knowing that I collect retro tat.It turned out the old lad was a keen cyclist and had kept a diary,this diary was given to me last year along with a couple of old piccys of his racing bike.It was a good read and the diary goes back to the mid 60s.
I asked about the bike in the photo's and it has been left to someone in a will.
I thought no more about it until Thursday when my customer rang for parts and told me that the bike was unwanted by the person in the will and would I like it......
Would I ever
So he is gonna drop it round to me sometime.Its been neglected but kept dry,so Im thinking a light resto and some new tyres and off we go.
My luck must be on the up,I dont usually have stuff like this happen,but a free 60s Italian racer and wining karma decals in one week is a record.
