Gentlemen lets please continue to be civil - though the Joan Rivers crack was hilarious.

I almost hate to admit it but I have said card. I did not respond earlier because A: I only have the card B: I'm not sure it is right to reproduce one. This is the same reason I never sold the thing even though I could get good money for it.

Clearly creating a reproduction card would be far easier than creating a fake 50th anniversary group which is the underlying danger of providing anyone with a high res scan. I just don't want to be part of it personally. Which is nothing against Montello.

it's such a shame - if ebay and the unscrupulous weren't out there, then this wouldn't even
be an issue..not pointing any fingers (i have some wonderful friends who are american)
but the prices that american sellers are asking for some of this old junk is just ludicrous!

more the clown who pays their prices for it, mind you!!

craig :x

A reproduction is exactly that, it is only fake when someone try's to pass off a reproduction as an original.

very nice indeed!!

just make sure that when you find those 50th hubs that you
rebuild the wheels with some nice dark anodised rims such
as NOS ambrosio metamorphosis, mavic gp4/ gl330/ ssc/ campag
record strada/ pave etc.

any of the above would set that bike off to a tee!
