Oh!! and the 50s Jack Taylor is just about the best looking bike I've seen in my life.
Elevs river/Koga shot is one of the best pics of a bike i've seen.

some extra sensational roadies on here...

Here is what i think is the first Aussie road bike on here. It was before I sourced a front mech. I ended up riding this bike for a year and then selling it as i moved overseas. it is a Kenevans 59sq frame (as i remember), reynolds 653, no chain stay bridge (which seems to be the norm with 653.... no idea why?), campy athena, one important part of DA, cinelli bits.

No offense to anyone else here, but i'm yet to see a paint job that i think is better...

I am in love with this bike.

That's the Norman Fay is it? It's come up very nice.

There's a memorial ride in memory of Norman taking place on the 14 June. I can give more info if you're interested. I'm sure there would be plenty of interest in the bike.

You've got some ace stuff. The Syncros road chainset and Salsa frame have consumed me with a hate-filled jealousy.

Hahahaha!
Its easy to let the money get carried away, isn't it? I've been completely broke for the last few months because of my Bridgestone.
I'd love a Salsa road frame though.
