thanks colnagoc59, i'll check them out.
i think i may have trawled their website before with no luck, but will get on to them asap.
in other news, cyfac have replied to my emails.
they have confirmed that all three of my super u/castorama frames were built by them between 1989 and 1991.
it appears that g.jc is indeed a marker for jean-claude garde, i am as happy as larry!
i'll take some pictures and add either posts with pictures or gallery.
to be honest, i'm not very good at either, it takes me ages to work all these online things out.
i'll have to start bolting bits onto the frames too, once i have the suitable decals for the incomplete set.
however, this will mean retrieving my "other children" from the loft and could be bad for my marriage as my wife is not aware that i have three frames - although i could claim that i have one for each of my daughters? and should name the bikes accordingly!
i'm also a bit involved with a retro and tours project linked to a bike shop opening shortly in berkhamsted, lovelo cycle works (www.lovelocycles.co.uk
). i'll have at least one of my rides at the shop on the "grand opening" day, sunday 28th april, so if you're nearby and fancy popping in, look for the fat bloke in the super u jersey!
all the gear and no idea it's not still 1989......
