Shorter

To compliment the red Aende I picked up last week . I added this late 70’s ex TT Shorter to my already overcrowded garage .

Original owner had it built to order at the age of 15 and paid in the region of £570 for it .

 

Do you reckon he got it cheaper due to holes in the bottom bracket shell and rear drop outs.

He also didn’t really have a gear set that are idea for hills .

I have seen a few of it’s sportier sibling the Aston Club come up for sale before but have never seen an Aston Tourist .

It should clean up nicely if that is what i decide on . Having given it a couple of short laps around the block i can’t believe how smooth and well it rides apart from slightly buckled rear wheel .
