Similarly, to learn about vintage bicycles, we ask questions of our elders in the hobby.The key point here is that the elders who were around while our favourite vintage machines were still on the road are no longer with us, the last of them having passed on in the past twenty years or so.
It will be filled with good music, great company and the thrilling potential to meet your own super hero or shinobi! Did your last date have no idea what a deflector shield was?Are you tired of guys who think Buffy The Vampire Slayer is “just for chicks”? Maybe you are just looking for someone to join you on your couch for the next season of Doctor Who.TO FIND OUT HOW OLD YOUR BIKE IS – JOIN THE VETERAN CYCLE CLUB!Although we are in the so-called ‘Information Age’ and the internet provides a surplus of it – some of it accurate, much of it misleading – there is nowhere near enough information on vintage bicycles. Sometimes, folks with no experience of the vintage hobby who may have recently unearthed an old bicycle contact me and demand that I immediately tell them what it is, how old it is and what it’s worth. ’ is a question I get asked a lot, nearly as much as: ‘I have a bicycle that looks like one of yours; if I send you pictures please can you identify it for me?
To sift through information to try and find similar pictures to your unidentified bicycle would take me months, and I’m already doing similar research on my own bikes.
Our customer service never stops working for you from catering trips to arranging dates and even providing you with directions.
Partnering with us is like having a personal concierge!
We study 100-year-old magazines to see when certain new innovations were first reviewed (it helps us date bicycles with similar features), read correspondence of the time to try to understand contemporary views and opinions, research old catalogues, meet fellow enthusiasts, help each other with restorations, ride our old bikes as much as possible, and work with our elders to pick up tips and wisdom.
If you can help in any way by contributing to this research, please get in touch. By recording and sharing this knowledge while it’s still as fresh as possible, our fabulous vintage hobbies will continue for centuries to come.
I try to explain as politely as possible that such a service does not exist, and they are often abusive as a result.
