Ride it. I've just unearthed a NOS bike myself, and once I finally get my hands on it, it will be ridden.


It's their destiny. :D

Lovely. But ride it, otherwise it's pointless having it. Cherished cared for it'll still look smart in 30 years time, and its not as if and Altus groups at is liable to impress any friends you have over for dinner, making it a weird choice as a piece of sculpture.

Well we have a shop down on Exeter's Quayside so its going to be used as one of our 14 Ceiling displays. Its not a Aww-gazing spec however its a very nice bike to look at. It will be going alongside a 1995 Killer V 900 thats already hanging up.

I have the same bike, but with a few upgrades. Its a good frame that deserves to be ridden. Ride it and enjoy it.
