No American or Japanese stuff on this lovely Roberts from 1988/ 89

Campag Euclid.

And look at the QR seat rail adjustment! Bit overkill.

Just look at that front hub..mmmmm.

I don't know what it is but of all the custom builders Roberts have always got it 'just right' (well, until recently when they started to focus away from MTBs and now only have a 10 year old pic on their website :( )

Love all of their work but especially their specials, like the Aston Martin bike, or the nude bike (to show off the fillet work), or the extralight Dogs - stunning!

I remember lusting after the euclid grouppo when it was launched. I was particularly taken with those over- engineered brake levers.
