Thanks for the compliments, Spokesmann.
Surely someone on this forum would remember the name from the 70s? I did wonder if there was any link between the 1976 film, "Silverstreak" & the racing cycles with that name during the 70s?
The history as I know was that it was brand new to my late fiance during the mid-70s then it was handed to his sister who gave it to me during 1993.
The only things I've added to this racing cycle, in 1993, was the red foam for the handlebars as the original wrap around leather was worn out & the front wheel in 1995, replacing the old wheel that was made in Holland due to the ball bearing that broke 3 miles prior to the finish of the London to Brighton event in 1994.
The rest hasn't been replaced by myself but, apart from the chrome frame, whether they're originals or not, I have no idea.
I've often wondered if its worth restoring & if so, how best to restore it? Should I keep the original names on the frame, etc?
