Unfortunately I got slack. When the time came to ring him back other things came up on the home front and the money I had to offer him was no longer available to make him a descent offer. Then it was other things and time got away. I think I would feel a bit of a shmuck if I contacted him now after stuffing him about.

Pffft, this is the country, things take time :) . The local earthmover took 4 months to get around to giving my parents an invoice for the work he did for them. Just think about the possibility of those frames ending up as a can of baked beans....

Haha yeah that's a thought Idry just like my dad informed me last weekend of the cheapie place down the road from him, that when the new owners took over, they threw out about 100 bikes from there! :shock: Some of these bikes were years old and I said to him, I wish I had known about this as there could have been some valuable bits and pieces amongst them. :(

This is on my list this year. I can look for my bottom bracket dust cap that dropped out last time.

Anyone got a NOS shimano 600 bb dust cap lying around :D

I saw one of those lying in the dirt in 2012, but I run campag, so I left it there..

The Noosa Strada Bianchi (NSB) is getting closer. Only 8 weeks to go to get the steelie ready. The dates are 9th and 10 August. Check the web site http://www.noosa-stradebianche.com.au/ for entries and free limited number commemorative musette for early bird entries.

The events are a Piccolo Fondo (33K) on Saturday morning as well as the Show and Shine in conjunction with the swap meet and then an optional dinner at the River Deck restaurant at Noosa Marina in Tewantin. Sunday sees the Medio (85k) and the Grand Fondo (128k)n starting at 7 am and returning to Noosa Marina for complimentary nibbles and self supported re hydration. There will be a popup cafe on the Sundays route with food and coffee. Entrants will be advised of the location of the popup at the pre-ride briefing prior to the start of the Fondo.

There have been quite a few national and international entries of late with some entrants meeting up in Italy for LÉroica and then venturing south for the NSB.

Some really interesting bikes being prepared, or not prepared, for the Show and Shine and the rides as well. We hear that one custom built race frame of yesteryear is being rejuvenated by it original owner with a 50th Anniversary Campag group set. The groupo looks fantastic even without a frame. There is another track bike with a fantastic rust patina that I believe will not be restored but ridden in "almost as found" state. What a state!!!!!.

The entry rules are simple, steel frame and down tube shifters, no carbon.

If you love steel bikes and aren't afraid of the dirt now is a great time to enter.
