Default Proper Bike Shops;

Fancied an MOT this year, apparently its all computerised and you gotta have one now, and there ain't nowt wrong with me bike so i thunk i'd get one.
Had a ride up me mates shop, seefing he did 'em.
He never, but knows A Man Who Can.
So one of the guys jumped on his Shytster and led me to see The Man.
What a fkin awesome place, was like stepping back into the 50's.
Definitely the Arkwrights of the mosickle world.
A proper treasure trove, you had to be there really to get the full effect, but i papparrazi'd it anyway:

First port of call, Polar Cycles.


'Arkwright and G-g-granvilles'.

This is Rockerbox, not too far from me an' just outside Farnham.
Darrell an' Arthur have a fair amount of spares an' stuff for old brits.
I love goin' in the shop as there's a load of old stuff in the windows
an' on the walls to look at.
