Thank you all for these kind comments.
The photographs have come up dark for some reason unknown.
I will try again at a later time.

Hello all,
Does anyone recall the third (!) Audax 853 that I was offered a while ago?
Well, remember or not itís arriving at my home Saturday. Iíve negotiated a decent price and so shall now have three of them!
After the long search I shall have a small collection.
I just hope that another does not appear as finances are severely hit😮
Best to all,
John

Update.

The second of the three Thorn Audax 853 bikes has been stripped down.
The frame/forks are now at the painting factory.
Im looking forward to another build after August 10th when the frame is due to be completed.

Look forward to seeing this one come back, have you gone for a different colour scheme?

[Posted on John's behalf...]

Along with the photos he emailed me, John mentioned these are of his second Thorn Audax 853.

A lovely refinish; we wish him well and a speedy recovery.

Best,

Dan.

I have come across leftpoole from time to time. (I might be getting mixed up with someone else?) Seems to be a committed cyclist with a good stable of bikes. Was he up to selling one or two of his bikes recently cos of health? Always valued his pictures and posts. Hope he stays around for many years to come.

Best wishes. Him or another always chose good looking bikes

Hello,
Yes indeed.
Iíve moved home a couple of times but settled now Iím old and suffering
very much these days. Not riding very often because Iím in a great deal of pain.
Happy always to build, restore and offer advice, but not really a Rohloff enthusiast!
All the best,
John
