Hi all, just thought i'd post my old faithful commuter. Built by Dave Yates in Feb 1989, who informs me that it started life as a Percy Bilton team frame for a rider called Rob Holden. (Dave was at Joe Waugh's shop at the time). 753 tubing, just under 18lbs as is. Fixed gear at the mo which is perfect for my commute. Never lets me down whatever the weather

Nice bike, prefer this paint job to the other Percy Bilton one which had a brick pattern on it. Rob Holden was a good amateur from Manchester who turned pro in the big times of the mid/late 80's. He did reasonably well but never as good as some.
