this bike had been stashed, in pieces at the back of GA cycles in a horrible state for god knows how many years but before i changed job last year gary decided he would finally get it refurbed after finding some of the last few parts to build it.
this was the first time i had seen it since then and WOW
what a difference!!
gary told me that some of the parts are not correct but there were reasons why, bar and stem for example are old cinelli but not old enough!! he has the correct bar and stem but doesn't feel confident using them because of the age of the parts and being alloy. apparently the chainset and front hub and post are period record and the rear hub is a chatterly (correct spelling?) the tyres obviousley are modern but i think that is the only thing, the bar tape is brooks as is the saddle and check out the bar plugs, cork!
the paint is original style and done by bob jackson to the original design, most of the decals are also original.
this bike is way before my time so i'll bet loads of you guys know more about it than me but i thought you would enjoy the pics
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
