SB6560 531c Services des Courses 1984 SBDU Ilkeston Panasonic Raleigh Frame Repair

SB6560 Frame Repair

It is Easter and I am loving the amount of time I’ve had in the workshop this weekend. I’m getting stuck into a couple of projects. Today is the turn of SB6560, a 531c 1984 Services des Courses frame that needs a small frame repair. I prepped the frame for this repair a few weeks ago and now have some time to finish the job.

I’ve been working through my collection of frames, and next on the list is SB6560, a 531c Services des Courses 1984 frame in the ’84 team Panasonic Raleigh colours. I’ve moved this up the list as I really want to get a Panasonic schemed bike built to fit in with the Raleigh Banana (SB8868) and TI-Raleigh (SB3800) that I have built in the last few months.

I think about and see lots of stuff I’d like to blog about but sometimes just don’t have the time to write anything; so I thought why not create a Facebook page?

It’s been a busy start to the year. January always seems to be busy with our photography businesses. New leases to organise, tax returns, accountants and a flurry of new clients to meet, not to mention trying to start my own bike business.

All I can say is… “That was a very busy year..!”

Well actually, I can normally say a lot more than that. 2015 was an awesome year for many reasons.

I normally write about what I’ve been up to with builds, but sometimes I just need to get some of my ramblings and thoughts written down as it helps me to work out what to do.
