Cheers guys :) I bought it from wadsy 3 years ago. Before that it belonged to messiah.
My bikes even hide from me ;) I have an agreement with my girlfriend that I only keep 2 bikes in our home. Fortunately, my parents allow me to keep all my other bikes in my old bedroom at their house. I try to rotate them round but it does mean that I go months without riding some of them.

I don't think I've put this up before and it's really just for posterity as it died a long, long time ago. It's a scan of a bad photo of a terrible incarnation of a lovely frame (it had been retired from mtb duties at this point and was my commuter). Taken around 1990 I guess.

That's well nice, but a tad large for us shorties, or is it just an illusion?

Cheers,

As this thread started with two bike projects, I thought, having taken it for its first shakedown ride last night, I should post a picture of one of them.

1992 Dave Lloyd CATS WISKAS

While I'm at it, I better post this picture too, although it's more Anglo American Steel... in every respect.

1994 Fuquay
