As promised here's a picture of my Old Club Tour taken at the campsite at Torridon on the west coast of Scotland.

Oh, what a lovely machine and a very nice camp as well! Well worth seeing. Loving the color.

Thanks so much for sharing, B'.

Clever use of a shop handlebar holder as a sort of Click-Stand!

Best,

Dan.

Excellent bike
Many thanks
But what about the tent?
It looks like my old Vango Spectra.
Never drink and drive. You may hit a bump  and spill your drink

Is that what it is Dan? I never knew that. I picked up two of them at a cycle jumble and immediately saw the potential.  I had to shorten it by a couple of centimetres in order that it fits beneath the top tube.

The tent?...... is a Vango Banshee200.  Vango tents are great value in my view and hit a particular sweet spot at the budget end of the market.

Yep!  :) I have one I use with my Park shop stand. One end secures around the seatpost with the knobbed rubber end, while the other holds the handlebars,. A little friction screw acts on an internal shim to hold the adjustment. It works as promised but thanks to your idea, I see greater potential -- Thanks, B'!

Very clever, especially for the attachment under the top tube; well done.

All the best,

Dan.
