It looks really good - I am still running a Carlton Pro Am 12 which has been my hack bike for the last 30 years .

I am interested in the policy at your local re cycling centre.

Ours used to be run by a great guy in a shed who kept interesting stuff to one side and was open to cash offers.

Now it is all organised with huge drop offs down into skips and removal is forbidden !

How is yours ?

hi
i know one of the guys working at the site very well
he always gives me a call if anything interesting turns up
it doesn't happen often,but at least there is a chance.
it really upsets me the way life is,so many people throwing items away,i suppose it's only a piece of steel to them.
hopefully another bike will come along soon,keep me going on the restorations over the coming winter months
