Fair enough... BUT
First let me say that I have the upmost admiration for anyone who restores an old bike, but your news story about Steve Jackson’s RD500LC (PS, Dec) leaves me asking ‘why?’. I just don’t get why he’d go to the length of restoring a bike only to keep it in a bubble.
To me bikes should be ridden, otherwise they simply become expensive ornaments. Each to their own, I guess, but it seems such a waste to me.
