You had a couple of Choppers? And a Grifter? You must have been well minted!
No sorry, I did have a couple of choppers and my mate still bring them back to their former glory when he can get his hands on an old frame. The Grifter was my unrequainted love, meaning I never ever did get my hands on one.
Shame my ability is way below the bikes. Still, would make me smile.
An original Holdsworth team professional.
I had this bike when I was a college 35 years ago. I used to ride it 20 miles per day.
Nice bike....I've got a Peugeot Performance 5000 as current resto project that still rides really well.
Looks way too technical for me.....!
This wouldn't be too bad either, in 63 cm.
Likewise. I see them come up on eBay every so often, and think I might treat myself one day. Tatty ones about £50, some in pretty good nick around £150.
I loved that bike so much!
But then I have to add everything else onto it as well? Surely that would cost more overall
Not if you go for mechanical ultegra and hand built wheels rather than what they have it built up as .
A Pennine Richmond , my oldest brother had one bought for him in the early sixties , it was eventually passed down to me, when my youngest brother took it on , as per him he left it lay half on pavement and kerb , it got reversed over , so off to the tip ,
Lovely bikes , and I used to see Pennine bikes in Gerry Shields Shop ,Manchester ,
full road racing spec of the day , I would like one ,
Memory Lane stuff , but would like one !
Looks an awesome frame and to see it go out like that would have been really sad......but it still has the memories.....and you can't beat the memories...!
Something along these lines is on my, far too long, must have list
