Classicpals,

Today I helped out my good pal Gary Williams by posting his 1975 Colin Laing, 56cm, Shimano Crane group to eBay. Have a look. The lugs are quite stunning and the "triple triangle" reminds us that there was indeed life before GT. The bike is made of 531 Special Lightweight, a tubeset that Laing described to Gary as being extremely rare the year it was built (that's just what he said!). It's a fine vintage bike with the sort of lugs appeal to the Hetchins in all of us. Here's the URL: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=463849519

cheers,
