Bike was bought a few months ago from an older guy who had had it in his shed for god knows how many years. Was custom made in Marlborough back in 87' i think. Shimano 600 groupset.

The chain recently snapped and needs replacing but other than that the bike is in great condition. Handlebar tape and break pads have been replaced recently. Rides really well and goes like shit off a stick on the descents. Great bike and is easy to tell it was riden by the pro's back in the day.

Great find.

My 2nd favourite livery behind the Raleigh Banana.

Remember buying a brand new frame from JD Whiskers in Geoffs Oak Herts when I was a teenager.
