Welcome to C-R! I am one of original member of the list and am a Britsh bike colector. I have 2 Holdsworth's, 2-C. Roberts, Jack Taylor, Hetchins, Carlton, and ofcourse several Raleigh's. Now, how your generation of people dealing with older steel bikes??

I know from my experiences (being there twice in 70's), your people keep, respect, and use older things than we do. How often do you see ordinary poeple riding pre 1985 steel bikes (I mean light weight, higher level ones)? Or, are there a lots of colectors of vintage steel bikes?

Thanks in advance, love to know what taking place in British bicycles today.
