Update Jan 2010: Email from Simon
Hi , Just read my bio on your site - all very interesting and thanks for the mention! Just to fill you in if interested...
I still have my bike but haven't used it in a while. I keep it in a shed and threaten to either try and sell or get it back on the road again - can't quite decide. (What's a bike like that worth these days?) It's still all in good nick but needs a few little things sorted.
It's true, I did all my own maintenance as far as I could but used to hire those special tools from GK. Easy as I lived in Herne Hill at the time. Must say, having GK near was great as I was always needing the odd part or two. A guy called Steve Smith used to serve me - he did keep in touch until a few years ago but I haven't heard from him in a while. Also a guy called Mike who was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Regards, Simon Crowe
