Dave Yates finished (almost) by gmac123, on Flickr

I've enjoyed re-building the old stead, and really enjoy riding it again.

Now to see how it (and I) perform on the strade bianche

cheers

That looks....

Too big for you, no really it does, the best thing you could do is sell it to me, it would be the right size for me, honest (see sig line)

Seriously that looks just PHOWARRRRRRRRRRRR!

There is something about DY bikes, and especially ones with the black on cream block text, rather than the '80's style text.

Enjoy it, and if you ever want to sell, give me a shout.

cheers tiermat, I've owned this bike for 25 years, reckon you can't give a bike up that you owned for so long... glad I've got round to giving it the love attention that it deserves.

good luck with your search

cheers

Covered in white dust: that is how the bike looks from someone who has just had the awesome l'eroica experience :)

Nice to have met you and to have drunk a beer with you and your on the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
