I keep seeing a S Bike in Preston (Penwortham). The guy riding it doesn't "look" like he knows what he's riding. (probably a complete presumption!)
The very moment I said to my wife I was going to stop him and make him an offer the next time I see him - he dissapeared!!!

Always keep an eye out. Sadly not seen much of interest locally, although Jezza claims to have seen some old dear kicking around on a klein attitude!

Yeah! She was! Old and haggard bombing along on a green, white an dpink Attitude (with big alloy forks too)...

Should have stopped her and offered her a tenner to take it off her hands.

I think I've seen that, de-sticked with quite a trialsy set up? I think it may a Vario not an S-bike.

There's a Klein Pulse always chained to the railings outside the gym I go to near my office. It's got slicks but apart from that looks like an original although it's not in great nick. I have seen the guy that rides it, he looks like Nick-nack off the Bond film, the bike is massively too big for him.

unfortunately most of the stuff I see here in the city are commuter or courier bikes although one of the guys in Evans Cycles over the road claims he has a nice line in retro classics he rides in on, yet to see any of them though ..
