Changed the thread title to help those reseaching Martelly bikes in the future.

Yeah, love the paint on this :-)
Surprised you got a response from Ribble - I've tried to contact them a couple of times about mine and no response!

Well, I waited a few days after the first response from them saying they'd look into it and then emailed again. I got a response back from a manager that day.

I did point out in the first email that I was a long time customer. I realize their time is valuable and helping with something like this doesn't really bring them any profit.

Thats a gorgeous frame - kind of strange to "de-value" it with the Ribble decals, so might have been ridden by one of the teams or individuals that rode Ribble frames in the 80's.....you had people like the Gornall brothers in the Manc Wheelers (who I also rode with), Gethin Butler and a bunch of others I can't remember rode Ribble badged bikes as part of sponsorship deals but they certainly weren't all Ribbles.....

Yep, I wish I knew why the repaint and ribble decals. If I could tie the bike to racer looking like it does I'd leave it alone but right now I'm thinking about pulling off the decals.
