Pointer":2jygqd8j said:^crazy if true. I am almost more interested in the back story of how a bike like this gets into such a state! or rather what happened to the original owner!
I hope the new owner is on here and posts the restoration.
My guess would be.. son buys expensive bike. Maybe or maybe not realises it's broken and goes off to uni, moves out etc. and leaves bike at parents house. Jump forward 20+ years and son has no interest in bikes and parents want it out the garden as it's already been relegated from the shed. Son's says to just chuck it so off down the tip it goes. Not realising there is a bunch of middle aged men prepared to pay good money for such a thing.
