Ah................ The windchime. Well I have to admit to making one from various Shimano prototype parts many, many years ago, but just like flares, that kind of thing belongs in the past, like flouro paint jobs. Still, nice fridge mate. Got any beer in it? :lol:

Thanks Lewis I'm glad you asked!

They give flex when opening the doors to allow the vacuums from the seals to be gently broken rather than ripping the handles (read saddles) straight off the doors :D

Thanks Lewis - because people on Retrobike aren't known for thinking about the details way too much are they?! :)
