Macleans Apollo Restored

Uncategorized No Comments

I’m sure that Simon P won’t mind me sharing his email, but more importantly his pictures here on the blog.

Just to give you a bit of background, Simon is a vintage cycle enthusiast who bought a lot of the items we found in this cache here:

More than just being a antiquarian, Simon is really a historian of English cycling heritage. There’s also a part of me which gets incredibly nostalgic for the localised production and smaller-scale values of the past, and part of me which enjoys the simple aesthetic beauty of bikes from the forties and fifties especially. So I understand the sentiment behind his restoration projects.

So good on you Simon. The bike looks really superb.

‘Hello Ben, I thought you might be interested to see how the Apollo turned out.
I trust the old bike business is booming.’
