I don't think I have anything special but I'll be bringing the following.

1. GIOS Torino Professional, white with blue panels, has a mix of C Record, Super Record and Record components. Still has the correct pantographed seatpin and big ring (a 53).

2. A late 50's Reg Harris track bike (not one of Reg's Ralieghs but one of the very few track bikes produced in his factory during his short lived venture into bicycle manufacturing). I rode this bike today for the first time in almost 40 years after a restoration project this winter, and it still rides very nicely. It has an incorrect chrome fork (drilled for a front brake - the original fork is a true track for with no drilling), incorrect chainset, incorrect handlebars and stem, incorrect seatpin and saddle, incorrect pedals, incorrect wheels, yeah it's all incorrect. BUT. If anyone wants to see the original fork and handlebars, I'll bring them along. And if you want to see the original Campag Pista 165mm inch-pitch chainset and 24 tooth Campag inch-pitch ring, I'll bring that along too, this chainset has the raised area around the pedal holes and the dust covers on the other side, it's a gem - very rare, the chainset may even be for sale!
