Mercier Hotness. 1980.

France, 1980

Road bike with full aero styled Super Vitus 971 framework #M67666 finished in Mercier’s malve metallic. Shimano 600 EX group (6200), Belleri bar/stem, Ambrosio Montreal blue finished tubular rims, S.Marco Concor Supercorsa saddle and Wolber tubulars.

Beautiful bike. Great to see Shimano getting some love… And 600, too. A boss group.


Salford Park R.I.P.

February 15, 2010

Because I am entering this I thought it about time I joined some sort of real bona fide cycling club so I can get my regular ride on, plus some good experience of riding in a large pack. Anyway, looking around on the club website that has been recommended to me by several, Beacon Roads CC I came across these great photographs of them racing at Salford Park in the 1980s.

I can remember myself trying to cane it around these very banks on my illuminous green Raleigh Lizard. It is ashame because Salford park is now a 5’a’side football complex. That said I suppose it was outdoors, and concrete, and crumbling to pieces. Heck I am sure I even got a puncture on there!

Nice photographs though.
