Hey - I worked at Yellow Jersey Chalk Farm before coming back to New Zealand. While there I got Greg to build me this frame. 10 years down the track it's still going strong with pretty much original parts. About to go for a respray next week - i blew the forks and found some old 1" spinners to put on it so it'll be british racing green all over.

Chris at the shop had a smiths crisps crispy bacon packet coloured road bike and the mechanic (name.. name... shit can't remember) had a green one similar to mine.

Here some pics of mine - I'll post some more later

pace huh - my buddy derek has a few pace forks.

I better not tell you the standing joke we had at yellow jersey in chalk farm in '94....

We were pretty daming of british component makers and called the them the triumvirate of hope-less, use-less and middle of the road!

Still my middleburn cranks are still going strong - hope is still makiing great gear so maybe we were wrong.

It's great to see a few fuquay's still around too!

Here goes the Fuquay - post repaint and with most bits on. Just waiting for some NOS Pederson self energizing brakes to turn up from flea bay - and toying with the idea of getting a full set of Mathauser brakes shoes to go on it as well - and then I'll be all go

New stickers where courtesy of Greg Fuquay via Yellow Jersey in Chalk Farm (from the owner, my old boss Dave Scott of Spizzenergi/Where's Captain Kirk? fame)
