I have decided to get back and do some cycling for the sake of my fitness. I went to uncover my trusty old steed (acquired back in 1975ish) and "that'll teach me to store a bike outdoors only wrapped in plastic sheets". It's a real shame as this was a classic old style 5 gear drop handlebar racer which was made in Austria (or, at least, one bit of it was). It had Olympic rings on one decal and pin striping on the frame! Curse my SWMBO who insisted it got moved out of the shed so that she could ....... I was somewhat horrified when I went to my local (to work) cycle emporium to find it had closed down. Everywhere else only seems to sell these modern contraptions allegedly made for riding up mountains. I would love to get my machine restored but there is nowhere local so, at the moment I can't make up my mind to try a self restore or buy another bike. Problem is; I want an old style bike like I used to have. My very first bike got mangled when I got knocked off by a car. My second was a lovely Claud Butler in Blue but they have gone under and the name taken over. The point of all this waffling is:- 1. Does anyone know of somewhere I could get a bike restored in Sussex (including paintwork)? 2. Does anyone know if you can still buy the style of bike I want new? 3. Any specialised on line bike auction sites? Thanks in advance for your answers.
