Woo! Having sold a NIB Tamiya Celica Gr.B (don't ask - I thought it would be fun to build in the free time I'd have while the baby slept
) I'm now in the market for a new (to me) bike.
Ideally I'd like it to date from somewhere between the mid-late seventies and the mid-late eighties. The size should be around 56cm.
I'd like it to be either a road going fixed (it'll be single speed for me, but whatever) or path racer style bike, or a cyclo-cross bike - preferably built for a single front chainring. Clearance for big (32+) tyres a bonus on the
I'd like a quality frame with quality components (I love Dura-Ace 740* rear mechs!) - perhaps worth mentioning that I particularly like the British builders who build/built under their own names.
all of the experts say you've got to start them young
