Without going into all the details, Stephen Roche was made aware 2 weeks ago that my 87' World Champ Battaglin replica existed, so you can imagine my amazement when he made a specific journey last week just to see the bike and sign it for me!

Not only is he 1 of 2 people to win the triple crown, but he's also an extremely nice guy..

He did approve, and was very impressed with the attention to detail. He did however give it 8.5 out of 10 because the bar angle was slightly out, and the electrical tape securing the Benotto tape was white when it should have been blue...

Clearly these issue have now been corrected!

Did you let him have a spin round the block on it ;)

Very nice bike as per your previous thread.
