Beautiful bike Dookie, the forks and d/t levers are always a joy to see compared to carbon forks and STIs/Ergos

I'm pretty sure Boneshakers in Harrogate is a Scapin dealer.

Boneshaker's isn't anymore, but http://www.velocebikes.com/ is!
I believe he used to be a partner in Boneshaker's, but went to do his own thing!

I'm pretty sure that Race Scene in Barnsley brought some Scapins into the country aswell in the mid-late 90s.
