People laugh at them, but there's still loads of these taking people to work.
Nice bit of history, looking good.

thats a good pic , remove some of the colour and it could easily be an authentic early 90s scanned in

chris is right there is at least one in every town with a guy with large glasses and questionable fashion sense . i remember having to put a chain on one a few years ago in the shop . you could pull the chain off the ring and see all of what was left of two teeth . he wasnt particularly happy that he needed chainrings and a freewheel too but they were probably original so long overdue a replacement :lol:

Nice EverReady light clamps too! I think we all probably had a set of them at some point.

My first "proper" bike. So, so heavy. It was a beast to get up any incline no matter how little :lol:

I ended up bending the front end after I had an arguement with a piece of concrete that some idiot had "hidden" in a stream at the bottom of a downhill section. At least it made the fork straight! Bust my very cool multi-coloured vetta helmet as well.
