|Extra details||The bike was bought from John Spooner in almost original but well-used condition. It was re-painted by Argos - we also added the chrome ends and fork crown. Jensen Cycles were in Whitehorse Road, Croydon, almost opposite Allins and were popular with the local fast men at the time.
For L'Eroica, wheels might be replaced with sprints and Cyclo cross tubs, any
comments or advice?
