    And you've still got the 'suicide levers'. Well done.

    To be fair my red Criterium could be fixed. It would just need new drop outs brazing in, but the cost isn't really worth it for a 501 frame.

    It was way back in '75 I think. I was saving up to get married. I'd saved enough to buy an engagement ring.:smooch:

    But I needed to get to work .
    It was ring vs new bike, no doubt you've guessed which won.

    A violet Raleigh Flyer, nothing special,only 5 speed, a strange mix of good and bad parts. I went everywhere on that bike, work fishing, charity rides etc.

    When the mountain bike craze hit and we moved house the poor Raleigh was a bit tired and during the clean up it ended up at the local recycling tip.:ohmy:

    I still keep a look out on Ebay for a violet Flyer. If you ever see one, let me know!

    Whatever happened to large flange hubs? Back then they were as necessary as those flares and wide belts.

    Very nice, like the colour coded pedals.
    You could get a small pig in that saddle bag!

    It folds out to give a lot more space

    I put a bid in on a pair last night. The sort of bid the wife would throttle me for. Thankfully someone (probably single) outbid me this morning.
