    An even better one is this....

    It has a picture of cafe on the cover, 2 cafe racers in their natural habitat and a blatant cock pic.

    My uncle was competitor no.67 but aside that there are loads of cool old adverts, a lot with price lists for 1979 tackle.

    I was an itch in my dad's pants then, probably didn't even exist in the dad sense... Bizarrely the other half of me was 16 years old and had lived a quiet life in my mum's ovaries.......

    For what it's worth this is an interesting read as to how expensive and maybe frustrating it is building your entire life around racing round and round the ragged rock once a year.

    I'm chuffed that one of my great inspirations, early mentors, and go to blokes for sorting out bike bits, even now; got to stand on that podium just once.
