Glad the shop is doing well and going from strength to strength

Those bikes are fantastically well spec’ed and I guess exactly what the owners wanted... but not exactly the nicest looking creations that’s left your shop if I’m honest.
That said, neither are mine and I’m not picking up the tab so it matters not what I think !

Must feel good to see your acorn growing

Yes, in my youth I remember drooling over Campag stuff, which was way out of my budget, the Saturday job just wouldn't stretch that far, but what have they done?

1983. Mmmmm.

The plastic cranks are gopping as well.

Do you have an account with Hope ?

Due to lack of dealers where I am I find it hard to get the wee bits and pieces. LBS that does have an account doesnt order that oft, and any wait could be months.
