  1. I've gorra 'new' bike! *Picture added*

    A 1970s BSA Competition 531 my mate gave me. Chucked some 90s Campag Athena bits on it which were lying around the workshop, still using the friction down tube shifters but now running 8s. Haven't had a road bike for years, built it up last night and it's bloody lovely!
