right then, been searching for pictures of chris boardman and gan etc for ages for reference for this build but i'm not getting the pics i want/need so if anyone knows anywhere i can get them that would be great.
this is what i have so far.
the first is my cougar from when i first got it, painted in the team gan colours with full campag record, this was 1995 and i went for this colour because of boardman. the frame i have received is the micro tt version of this road bike. i am sure i remember seeing boardman win a stage in a race around 1994/5 and was pictured on the bike on the front of cycling weekly or cycle sport magazines, so if anyone has a copy to scan or send me that would be great, i think the race was the "criterium du dauphine" but i am not 100% sure
what i have found out is this:-
in 1992 he was still riding on Cougar bikes with Campagnolo for the north wirral kodak team in red and yellow kit.
then in 1993 he went to team Gan which at the time were riding Lemond bikes in yellow and blue with a campag/mavic mix although for the first 6 months or so he was still riding a cougar but in the colours pictured below.
in 1994 the bikes were still Lemond in blue/yellow again campag/mavic mix with cinelli parts
in 1995 they changed to Eddy Merckx bikes in blue again with campag/mavic/cinelli mix
these bikes continued for 1996 and 1997
then in 1998 the bikes were still Eddy Merckx but white with a Mavic/Dura Ace mix
then the team became Credit Agricole with Look frames with shimano Dura Ace through out.
i bought my cougar at the latter end of 1994 as a 1995 model but i specifically asked for the Gan paint.
anyway here's some pics to show what boardman and the team were riding (mainly looking at soec as opposed to frame though)
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
