This is the bike that confronted me Christmas day 1973 (I think) which was my first proper racer.

Rode it everywhere and stuck sprints and tubs on it for my first 5 / 10 / 25 time trials as a schoolboy.

Even the colour and decals seem original.

I don't need it but...........................

Frame went for 26 quid in the end, seller didn't want to entertain anything but pick up......

Yep, I could sing along with the lyrics despite the tai-chi guy LOL

The 16 year boy old has bought a Human League album as people at school listen to them. I have Human League Dare on Vinyl and know the lyrics to the vast majority of the tracks....
