Early Spring preparations.

13 Feb

On our recent trip to Center Parcs, we realised that my wife’s vintage bike needed some work to make it 100% so I collected it from a service and cable change today. It’s been all over France in the past and being American, it’s a fairly rare , heavy and well made but Swynnertons had the cables, inners and outers and seem to have done a good job setting up the twin gear changers too.

Here’s mine. Both bikes are about 28 years old. Wife’s from Toys R Us, mine from Carrefour in Angers, near Lac de Maine. Both have been great value for money. Hoping to wear them out with use this year ! 

STOP PRESS !  Just found some photos from way back with my wife’s bike shown. It shows our former coachbuilt Talbot Excalibur, custom 4 bike rack and our Suzuki tow car trailing behind. Watch out for this nostalgic post !
