I'm ashamed to say that two parrallel thoughts were running through my mind when I saw the deltas

god they're worth loads. :oops: :roll:

but, at the same time 'god, they're gorgeous up close...'

:D


I'm just going to pop out to my shed and check that you've not nicked them of my Pennine :wink:

Jees - if I went to my local recycling centre I'd end up with a knackered kids trike...on a good day.

Next week...."hey look, I found this Funk Pro Comp and a Fuquay Max OR. - both NoS in a Skip"

They are the most beautiful road brakes ever imo - timeless design

Another excellent find, you have a talent for keeping these excellent examples of bikingdom safe from the crusher and landfill. They are saved to be recycled and admired, thus thwarting the evils of a throwaway society and saving the planet.
We salute you....................... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Keep up the good work

well, I'll do my best as it were.


anyway, heres my custard coloured Motobecane Jubilee sport (from the tip) with its Time Carbon forks (from the tip) now tripled in value with the deltas and the C.Record mechs (From the tip).

Compared to what I have seen on ebay - these deltas are mint with no cable rub or road rash.
