That was me mr Dekerf, thanks! :D
Unfortunatly could only do the early one in the end.

I brought this frame over from Canada, took me a long time to find a nice old Altitude in good condition. Its my favourite riding bike too :D

Thanks everyone for a great ride, great company and some really smart retrobikes. Funds allowing I'm going to get the McSchwinn looking more authentic with a good paint job and more period parts so I can see you guys again.

All the best for 2008 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah, the new end! Although, it makes my 97 bike look quite new (situated round the bin area :roll: :lol: ), most of the bikes there were 93/94/95 era.
