1980's I think.
Still being raced, fixed time trial machine, 501 tubing, quite light and pretty quick even if I am not very quick myself.
It recently got itself banned from Newport Velodrome for being a bit too low :) oh the shame .... :lol: [/img]

It now has [ or will have when rebuilt ] a new paint job, decent racing wheels ie alloy rims, medium 3 speed Sturmey and a DT Swiss radial hub in the front.. the rack has gone.
Will post some pics when it is done......[/img]

I haven't done a TT in half a life time! I may do one as I have a recently purchased TT bike. Last by ten minutes I reckon would be the best I could hope for!

Do a club ten, there are usually one or two slower riders you can battle it out with,,,,
I excepted years ago that I will never win anything so just have fun, hence the old bikes, I did 199 miles in a 12hr on the Moulton last year, not quite last, there were a couple of older tt bikes being used at that event as well.

Spoke guard ? and I thought it was to make the wheel more aero dynamic. :wink:
Standard fit for export bikes to the USA at one time I think. Risk and product safety and all that :shock: .
here is another one.

Why not have a go at the Planet X 'Old Skool' events? If you enter OS then you should be guaranteed of a ride. Retrobike is CTT affiliated so no club membership problems.
