Sadly not....Just a job...my life is like a Bruce Springsteen song a the moment!

At least we can smile at the 6 Nations and the Grand-Slam.

good question!so...ellis Briggs, woodrup, pennine, ephgrave, fothergill, old bj (jrj), Roberts, anything to do with the Taylor's etc etc...currently have an '82 king of Mercia but a chap in Spain wants to buy it so have to find a replacement!


Have a very nice, very rare fillet brazed (Jim) Soens, 22.5" seat tube, 22.5" top tube, it is very early (1946), but rear end is 120mm.

Bike came to me from the original owner, have copy of invoice. If you know your Merseyside bikes you'll know a Soen's is special.

It needs a repaint but I have a set of transfers (super hard to get).

£100.00 plus postage or collect and have tea and cakes chez moi.

Roadking.
