    Love the cunningly engineered flex in the frame.

    I admire him for racing it, it would just so easy to put it in a glass showcase.

    Pat is a bit of a Velo legend, great classic racer in New Zealand when he lived there, moved back here, wasn't so keen on the classic scene over here so went to the hill's were he was very successful, at a very very wet Prescott in the 90s he had FTD on that 500 beating all the modern bikes, he will kick my ass for this but he rides with a little bit more respect for the velo these days!!

    Something he's been involved with. https://velocetteracing.wordpress.com/category/velocette/eldee-2/
