You might as well have badged it Ferrari...Galiofly, or Fiat Coupe yellow - Broom.

Never did like those fadey-faddy 80s colour schemes.

Looks nice in yellow though, yellow is good.

Rk.

I suppose its all up to the owner of the bike but the Ducati decals are laughable ! A bit like what you see a BMW or Porsche bike :oops:

The only bike i like to see with a name on it has got to be the Ferarri Colnago's.

I bet it gets some looks by the motor-bike buff's :wink:

Nice frames these...I got the '501 Club' from the same range under the Raleigh 15 year warranty. We had a Raleigh Pursuit which cracked on the chainstay where the mudguard bracket affixed (all the warranty jobs we got in broke there!). Bet it rides nice.

Just received the last decals for the full refurb from H Lloyd Cycles.

Service from Nick was fantastic, helping to sort 2 of the decals that weren't on the shop list.

10/10. Can't praise his efforts more.

Back in her proper clothes...and a few upgrades.

Still a head turner after 25+ years.
