Lovely looking bikes those, the red one features in adverts in International Cycle Sport magazine.
But were they (the good ones that is) built in Ireland? Or by a reputable 'small builder' over here? The Viking team frames were.
I've a feeling that the sales manager at that time was Dave Rollinson (ex Liverpool Mercury CC and Peugeot) - and the 'image'on the front cover of the catalogue looks remarkably like him in a Mercury jersey!
However, as usual, I could be completely wrong.
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
