    Do you remember bike shops like this?

    Researching a track bike I will be renovating I came across this article about a bike shop I used to frequent in the late 60s and 70s. Good memories, although, looking back I wonder how he made any money.

    Read the bit about how he finally checked out - I wouldn't mind going like that!

    You would have been very lucky indeed to get an actual smile out of Charlie.
