Holy moley. I last rode one of those in about 1990. And that's about the only additional retrobike I'd still like to own.

Where's it been for the last few years?

Why havent you posted the formula mate....?


Like buses :lol:

Hardly, i was well excited to see the pics, as i am with this, as i was with the formula..... 8)

Im sure you could furnish the thread with a few more pics, a spec list and the original article on the bike, it is the British Steel thread, and a Swallow is a Rare and cool Bike.....

Hi guys,

It's been recommended that I post you some pics on British Steel.

As I have just picked up this bike on eBay and thought you might be interested.

That's a very cool looking bike, and not a name I remember at all.

My 1992 ish Roberts Genesis, a long time ago....Scanned image

This was the standard geometry and colour that Roberts were supplying at that time, white powder coat with red and blue enamel, originally it had a Bontrager fork.

Tioga cranks with 50t chainring, campag headset, x-lite ti bar and all that good stuff.

Now sadly repainted and sold :(
