Annoyed ...

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Rhythm Thief, 31 Jul 2007.

  1. I got a phone call from an old cycling mate today who I haven't spoken to for a year or so. He used to ride a classic Claud Butler Panache audax bike, made in the days when Claud Butler were a quality make. He told me that he's moving to Canada in three weeks' time and so he's had a big clear out, which involved selling his Claud Butler for ... £50. He knew I always coveted that bike! He even said "I nearly phoned you to see if you wanted it." Grrrrr.;):biggrin:

    Never mind, you'll just have to tell yourself that what you are riding now is much better.................I know it doesn't help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I expect it's a good job he's moving to Canada after dropping that little bomb-shell? ;)

    Is he still your mate then:?:

    think of the cash you've saved. i bought an old reynolds 531 frame that even though i had a spare full groupset and one wheel for it, still cost me more than to buy a cheap alu bike from decathlon. that said, i was in it for the steel so as not to ruin my 6061 alu framed bike on winter commutes.

    I used to have a Panache - just the most beautiful bike to ride. I still miss it

    What would you think that a Panache in barely used condition would be worth?

    What would it be worth in little used condition?
