- Black with Gold & White Highlights

This bike belongs to a gentleman by the name of Colin Farmer. Colin and his wife Barbara are active local cyclists both in their 80s and this bike was infact an 80th birthday gift.
Barbara and Colin have been very active in the local cycling scene for many years. They're both veterans of a number of Paris-Brest-Paris 1200km events. These days they are Saturday morning regulars at the Carriage Cafe, Fremantle where their company is always enjoyed by some of the old and newer generations of the local Audax community. After their coffee at the cafe, they continue by bike to their weekly fruit shopping at the Freo Markets before returning home.
Getting a bike stolen sucks at the best of times. It sucks doubly so when it happens to such nice people.
If by chance you've seen a bike which fits this description anywhere in Perth or surrounds, perhaps for sale - please PM me in confidence.
