    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.

    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.....!

    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 .
