If anybody know any thing about the AMI brand i would be keen to find out more, i suspect it was a speedwell which was refurbished buy AMI cycles in Sydney a long time ago. also keen to get peoples thought on how old it may be.

Just finished getting this back on the road and I had hoped it wasn't to small as my others are normally a 58 who would have thought 2cm would make that much of a difference but it does. Oother then that it's great.

Lots more pictures on my Flicker page

geometry

When you have a chance, you should check the frame's geometry. What is it, 72 for the head tube and 75 for the seat tube? Crazy!

the seat tube is raked back

the seat tube is raked back at almost 69 and the head tube is far more normal 73.

crazy

Really looks fun to ride.

yeah they don't make they

yeah they don't make they like they used to!

Its

cool to see an old road-geo-with-track-ends bike. Shows the current trend has precedents.
