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.

What front racks?

The front racks are Bor Yueh.  This type  of rack (without an over the wheel hoop) requires upper mounting bushes threaded from both sides of the fork blade in order to provide enough triangulation to prevent the racks  from twisting and ending up jamming in the front wheel. There have been some nasty accidents where people have ignored this advice.

My only criticism of the design is that the diagonal strut, which is held  at the lower mounting boss with a P clip, tended to slip and the rack rotated forward. I've since cured the problem by glueing a nib  of aluminium to the strut with epoxy.
