On 29 May 1965, Tom Simpson rode in the London–Holyhead race, the longest unpaced one-day race, with a distance of 265 miles he won in a bunch sprint. Simpson set a record of ten hours and twenty-nine minutes and with an average speed of 25 mph.
Yes that's mine. Very kind @Gaston!
Thank you sir :)
Don't think I've actually posted my Moser Leader AX in here, current guise:
Wowsers trousers, that's even nicer than I'd imagined.
Ha, just about to @ you about that!
Well spotted! Always had a hankering for 753 too, don't know if it was the era it was produced but something about it seems cooler than 653 and dare I say it 853.
Badge and shield logo is late 60s early 70s I think so around 10 years early if you're being a stickler for period. Better than risers though!
edit: just seen the photos in the sun 😄
A big vote for not drilling the fork and drop bars. Pos Cinelli giro d'italia if you want something period but more compact.
