Thanks to all for the nice comments.

To TGR, This bike is not part of the 20 or so in the garage because I sold it about 4 years ago. I bought it locally from a Craigslist ad rode it around for a few months and decided it was too small. I ride all of the bikes in my collection however a few, like the Bianchi, that are very old and original get ridden sparsely.

For the last couple of years I haven't the time to hunt for bikes so I buy off ebay.

Steven,

Thanks for that, i imagine that you get more opportunity to ride them in sunny California than you would here in wet Northern Ireland!!

Can't wait to see the next instalment.
