Where is the bike?

There never was one, just some expensive Grafton Speed Controller brakes, far more than what John was recently selling them for, little bit of embarrassment on here I think.

Caught out is a better description Ash :D

Sounds like someone was trying to make a few hundred percent profit overnight. Not cool...not here.
John is great people too. :evil:

The world is too small and life is too short.

Thank you all. When I saw this I was pissed. Nothing I can really do about it. Just so you all know I have always tried to be fair and honest since I started back in the 80's. What brakes I do have left go for about $50.00 more than they did 20 years ago. When I saw that some items were being sold at over 3 times what I sold them for, like I said I was pissed off. I might have said some things about this seller that I shouldn't have, but too late now. I like to sell to builders and enthusiast of vintage bikes not people that want to sell again only for profit. I still have to make some of the parts myself in my small shop. I'am offended when I spend a weekend putting together a couple sets of brakes only to have them resold, not even having opened the packaging, that I personally put together. Anyway, I ramble on. I just want to say that I really thank all of you that still appreciate and support the Grafton name. P.S. I'm having some of the original Grafton Performance frame decals made up. I will be sending some out to all that have purchased anything from me lately. I have your addresses on file, so hopefully you will see them soon.

Love you guy's

John Grafton
