That Centurion...always a tasty bike. Among many others there of course. So annoyed I couldn't make the day!

Hey, there was an orange Condor in a few of the pics. Does anyone know if it was for sale? And if so, if it was sold?
Cheers, K

I'd also like to add my thanks to the organisers for a fantastic event. Also thanks to everyone who brought their precious metal along for us to gawk at. I do hope there are plans to repeat the exercise next year.

BTW, did anyone buy that Humber frame with the neat duplex fork? I kind of which I had now...

Thanks for uploading that. The area is a little oasis, considering where it is. Looking forward to being able to get to the next one, whenever that is. 8)

These were my two.

The old 1949 track bike seemed to attract some attention on the day.

....and I did run into 1 Paino fan too

Very nice rebilda, I voted for your track bike as my favourite on the day. Glad to see a good photo as I hadn't seen it in any of the other sets. Very tidy looking bike, and I like the copper bits.

My (now somewhat feeble) memory tells me I used to see quite a sprinkling of them in my commuting days, 70s/80s. They must still be out there somewhere, but they don't seem to surface too often. :|
Yours is very easy on the eye. Had I been there, would have been 2 you'd run into. :lol:

Yes, lovely job on the Paino! I spent a lot of time admiring the bike and comparing it to the Paino's in my collection - no two seem the same! I did search for the owner for a chat but my timing must have been bad.
frailer - mine get used on the commute into Newcastle on a regular basis so there are still some out there on the road ;-)

Thanks for the compliment.
I was hovering around all day, but did spend a lot of time trying to escape the heat. I dont see any other Painos around when i'm riding, but have had a few people comment on mine and tell me they have one at home - so they are around, just well hidden.

It's run by two guys Richard and Gavin,
Both are great guys that run a great weekend.
Well worth a look every thing on display from 1800's to now.

It's great to see these events happening around the country now they make for a great place to catch up with those you often don't get to talk too.

Like pushies I'm sure the Sydney one will continue to grow each year.

rebilda: I was that fellow Paino Pusher. I use one of his frames for work and have a few more on the back burner. And picking up another this weekend hopefully!
Any one know how to track Cranky Franky down? Last I heard he was doing a day or two out Parramatta way...
