Would anyone like to hazard a guess at how many STS' s there are in the UK?
I reckon there are hundreds of 1's and 2's, but how many STS lobos?
Did anyone used to work for the GT importer and have any official numbers?
In 97 when I got my STS-2, Ceratti were absolutely desperate to get them into the shops. There was a dealer in Bristol who had been forced to take an STS-1, but who knew he could not sell it. He was told that unless he took an STS they would not supply him with any of the cheaper models, which was what he really wanted.
I got my STS through my LBS who were not a GT dealer, but who had an account with Ceratti for accessories. They phoned and asked if they could buy just one STS-2 and were told yes, without any issues. I think the local sales rep delivered it, as Ceratti were based just up the road in Almondsbury, Bristol.
I fancy there are more STS's out there, maybe still sitting in their delivery boxes in the stock rooms of old shops, just waiting to be discovered
Either that, or they all went back to the US with broken frames
