You still didn't answer magnetoman
Question do you have the missing parts.
If not still has me drooling. Hope it didn't cost you an arm and a leg. Your very lucky to find it indeed.

Exercise is dangerous, just do enough so you can kickstart a bike and nothing more. Just read the interviews of retired athletes, they are worn out at 35 and live with dodgy joints and related issues for the rest of their lives.

And if it is yours Craig well done on the find.

My workout routine used to be the walk from the shed to house to fetch another beer and then the wife bought me a mini fridge for the shop and ruined everything.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

Good advice K on exercise though I mountain bike 90km/week it is at a somewhat slow pace and as for this Vincent project finding either a photo of a trailer Vincent or it being on your trailer is something that will keep you alive. He did take it apart in the 70's after all.
