Nigel Bean or Nigel Dean? I ran across a "Dean" when I was in Scotland a year or so back.
This is the Nigel Dean Touring bike and the proud owner, "Actually, it's my wife's bike...have heard of 'Nigel Dean' bikes, have you? (I hadn't) Is it famous? Is it worth anything?"
He told me it had been on the ferry when it sank, got recovered a few days later along with the ferry, dried out and cleaned of the salt water, and been ridden ever since. Must be one heckuva good construction!
