Hi adds.
Apart from me ( being the other person you've spoke to! ) don't know if there's any other retro bikers in the Colchester area :wink: ..... dunno who the guy is that was riding the tasty P7 Nickel though :?:
If you can, come along to the thetford ride 3rd Aug. I can pick you and your bike up if you want..... whereabouts are you?
Definately a good day's riding and you'll get to put some faces to the names.
..... put the road wheels on the Scott the other night and rode from Laindon to Colchester after work..... certainly much more fun than the Friday commute home and on a bad day you'll probably get back quicker than the car 8)

Cheers,
boy"O"boy

Not that close but I'm based in Rayleigh. My housemate is a fellow retrobiker and a mechanic friend of mine thinks he painted some frames for someone from the forum, but he doesn't know who!

His name is Andy, and he works out of a workshop near the Dick Turpin pub on the A127. This must mean there's more of us out there!

Indeed you might. Next time I get out the KHS will be white with black sids, it's having a bit of a revamp. I'm trying out a powder coating firm by the A127/A130 junction.

I tend to head over to hockley woods, if you have any recommendations for good trails I'm always looking for new stomping grounds.
