Rody, Really pleased for you! I had 2 bikes stolen and I am still pissed about it (15 years on!). It looks awesome and I can only imagine how great the first ride will be for you. Great Bike, great story!
this here is what i imagine seeing in the wiki under 'retrobike'.
This made me laugh, only beacause it ilustrates how different we are. For me, having never seen a Grove before coming on here, the word 'Retrobike' conjured up images of Overburys and Oranges.
Vive La Diffrence!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
