Hi - I've been flyfishing for the past 15 years and have accumulated too much gear. Is there anything specific you're looking for that you would consider a trade?

My old mate and I raced these in the early 80's. His was custom (rich parents) mine stock. Solid bikes.

You have a very nice collection of classics. I am still enjoying the Raleigh Team
I purchased from you a while back. I just bought a matching team Raleigh LS jersey made in the 1970's. When I ride around town I get very glaring looks.
I am not sure if it because:
its a. because I look really classic cool or b. i look like a fred.

Good luck with the sale. DixiesDad is a great person to work with. :hello:

I have been riding my Mercian Super Vigorelli for about a year now - the same 631 construction. This is a great price for a wonderful riding bike. Put a Brooks on it and some tanwalls and have the classiest of frames on your block. :beer:

Agreed. The bike I purchased from him was better than described. In fact, short of a couple of scratches, I'd say it was almost NOS.
