Sadly the Leary was stuck in the corner and collecting dust.......

Rescued and cleaned up - some before and after pics

Nice that Gaffer.

You've got some lovely bikes stashed away. What was your thoughts when starting your collection? Is it a hand picked collection of builds, based around a wish list, or a being in the right place at the right time and having the available cash collection?

Good question

My hit list back in the early 2000's maybe 03 04 was to get an old school ride, maybe a Curtis or ET which was my bike as a kid.

I bid on a performer on eBay and the seller was Pete Quad or all people, and the rest is history

I then found Rad which led me to find a Curtis via Retrogeezer and then it just snowballed, I was lucky to buy stuff cheapish and never sold owt - well a few things as you know

The Leary was just a dream and pick this up in around 07 08 from a lad who lived next door to the chap who owned retrospective BMX - small world

Been collecting every since  :LolLolLolLol:
