Great link. This correspondant (aka the Angry Asian in another life I believe) has done a couple of good retro themed pieces. Think he maybe registered here too.

Nice link John - and an interesting bike. I wonder who actually built it, I can't see Huffy doing it!

I've got a couple of those Avocet wheel sensor rings in my spares box.

Perhaps they'd like to buy one for an extortionate amount :twisted:

Thanks for that, I'd not noticed the link back. Surprised to hear that a Serota frame failed but, as it says, it was probably a duff set of tubing. I recognise the Land Shark name but not sure if they're still building?

It's just the right size for me, do you think he'd swop it for one of mine? :wink:

Credit to fritzlite for the original link.

Interesting regarding the serotta's failing. Not sure if 'land shark are still building'.
