Thanks Phillip, thanks Imwit
Yes I saw this Blackbird too.
To be honest, these old relics have little value apart from sentimental value. For myself, Don Blackman was a father to my own dad and his brothers. Don looked after the boys when they were growing up because their dad had died. Don gave my father and his brothers Blackbird bikes to start racing on. My dad, uncle Fred and Uncle Reg all became champions. Reg was twice madison champion of the world and a veteran of over 100 six day races in Europe.
Their Blackbird bikes are long gone and so you see my desire to have one, especially since my dad died last year. But even I would not pay that amount for the one on facebook. And if someone with my attachment to the name wont pay it, who will?
Sorry but its not even worth half that.
