Somewhere on youtube, there's the full version of the documentary. Confusingly its not called 'Its all about the bike' but a title it was given earlier.

Never quite understood the trip to the USA for his wheels though.

I suspect it helps the programme makers sell the programme to American TV channels.

Watch any BBC factual type programme and probably there will be an American expert/academic on it.

Last year I get a Flying Scot given to me - yep pale metallic green :lol:

:lol: The odd thing is I've just sold my Harry Hall which is almost the same colour! I'm kind of 50/50 with the colour, if it had been pale blue metallic, it would have been perfect :)

I have to mention that any image of Maggie Thatcher I see turns me puke green :lol:

Lovely stuff - I have a near identical track Rourke. Same pale, metallic green. Lovely bike, sadly under-used given my location in the country. I have added a front brake, so I can use it on the lower level stuff.
