I thought I had :shock: I had all my bikes chained through a floor anchor in my parents garage at the time, so when I arrived there and saw that the chain was intact I feared the worst :?

There were a few bikes missing when I went to collect the remains though :? I got the Kilauea back almost straight away but only recently got this back ( after I'd bought another one :roll: ) :lol:

I still can't figure out how the missing ones have returned unscathed while all the rest had big chunks missing from the top tubes :? all I can think is that I used two chains and they cut through one :?: I don't remember using two chains but everything was a bit of a shambles at the time as we'd just moved house and were decorating the new one , so who knows :lol:

Gorgeous. Quite similar to the Mrs's. Like the black kit and black rim/ amber wall look.

Lucky, sure there's a Chinese proverb about that one somewhere.

Still looks great, has me hankering for one. Would say old-skoll syncros would suit better though.
