I came so close to an impulse buy . . .
There's a mechanically sound but cosmetically grubby circa 1987 Muddy Fox Explorer at the Aston Clinton recycling centre shop for £10. They were £385 back then. 3x6 gears, bar top levers, cantilevered brakes and narrow bars, who could resist? Well, I did, but someone's going to get the bike every kid my age wanted in 1987
