A thread for my signature link.

I didn't rebuild this bike so I take no credit for it. The frame started off on sale here from "Marmite". It was bought by "saracen Steve" whos not been heard from since and then it popped up on e bay and into my hands. This is what started off my retrobike interest, but as I bought the whole thing it felt like a bit of a cheat, so I have since bought an old trekker and rebuilt that to earn my mechanical badge! See signature link for that too!


So some pictures of the frame (from RB) and the finished article.

Thanks. In the photo above the bloke on the left is me, and the other guy has a torch on his head!

but the photo is taken with a helmet cam, which is mine but I have attached it to "coombers" seatpost so I can take photos of myself! Not vain at all!!

It is set on photo mode, taking one every 30 seconds or so I think, but it also does video. The new one is HD and I trouble editing that on my old coomputer but my old cam is nearer dvd quality and much easier to edit.

I have mostly used them for work, this is my favorite......

And also used it for sports.......this one is HD
