Nice collection... 8)

I bought a 40 a few weeks ago. Just being a detaillist for my '95 :oops:

Do you have a manual of a 40 ? ....and perhaps a scanner ? If so, I have an e-mail adress to send some scanning-work... :D

Wow, cool 8)

I had a fluro yellow Avocet (40 I think) BITD and I'm surprised just how good they still look. Think I'll be keeping my eye out for some of these in the future - new cycle computers are pants, in my professional (personal) opinion.
