LOL! Yes believe me the same chain is holding out nicely - since the early 1980's!! I've decided to spend no more money on the bike as it's rusting up, it's had a few crashes. All that said I've had no end of people these last few months admiring the frame and components - and I have to admit it gives a great ride, handles brilliantly and moves fast. Of course I paid a lot for it in 1980 but it was handbuilt to top spec'
Myself I'm doing fine - being a bit more respectful of myself over recent months - not living quite as recklessly or carelessly.
My father died over Christmas - and it all makes you think a bit. Enjoying my cycling once more.
