Noted. I think I mentioned this last year, but this is the event to which my son-in-law and I set out to ride several years ago. Part way there, in Stevenage, his forks broke, landing him in the road. We loaded our bikes onto the train, went home, and went to the sale by car instead, where we bought a replacement frame - quite a nice Claud Butler Majestic (actually as complete bike).

This year, he's had Mercian respray it, and it is looking rather splendid. Maybe we should make a return visit! (Although without the accident, preferably.)

We look forward to seeing the re-sprayed Claude Butler. Originally gold as I remember.

Sorry we didn't make it. Other things called.

Yes, gold was one of the standard colours for the Majestic of course (or you could have light blue). It's now a rather fetching red, and looks fantastic. Maybe we'll be able to make next year's event :D
