I have owned this Ian May decaled machine for a few years now . The actual make is unknown but it does have an Italian threaded bottom bracket so can only presume Italian parentage .
Normally I don’t use it till the month of May but this year it had to wait until June mainly as I wasn’t cycling in May with the covid pandemic around.
Over the years I have owned it the bike has undergone various changes ie at least 3 different types of wheels and tyres , 2 sets of calipers , 2 different bar and stem combination’s due to different reasons.
I always think it looks cool especially being red and chrome and now with red tyres just to finish it off .
It’s a lovely bike to ride and always soaks up whatever I throw at it and often comes back and asks for more . The miles just roll away and it doesn’t mind the occasional hilly terrain as well with a 52/42 chainset and a 12/36 rear cassette .
It never covers loads of miles each year but it’s always one of the bikes that I look forward to riding on a regular basis. And when you consider some of the machines in my garage that says a lot .
