Well I have started a little book describing each and every cycle I own, also a description of the cycle including any alterations and all its known history is sealed in a plaggy grip top bag then shoved up the seat post for future....I do not restore where and whenever possible just maintain we are after all not the owners merely the curators for our lifetime or however long we keep the cycle, my cycles are at the moment the only assets I can pass on that the ever increasingly addept taxman can't won't get his hands on (UK) They WILL be sold for the best price possibly on Ebay or similar when I am gone and will go to a collector possibly those that come after us! they will no doubt be cosseted like they are now and hopefully ridden,neither of my children are interested in riding them as yet but perhaps one of the Grandchildren would be when they arrive!! not just yet though!!
