Legnano c.1951 – EGG ON FACE

PUT YOUR WALLETS AWAY!!

It has come to light that unfortunately the Legnano was not what it seemed.

So we have taken it off eBay and rob is now wiping his face.

Poor Rob.

Original add:

Rob has just put one of his own collection on eBay, this one in particular is thought to be one of Bartali’s own.

A great chance to purchase some cycling history:

The sad demise of the Austin band The Weary Boys in 2007, saw the end to one of the best live bluegrass blues bands i’d seen perform.  They produced six CDs in six years (2001–2007), their energy was boundless, their music: great mix of speedy ‘blues grass’ riffs and high kickin melodies, and last but not least; charisma – they had it by the bucket full.
Mario Matteoli – singer and guitarist of The Weary Boys, tells in the Doug Freeman Interview below; “We worked really hard and gave it a good shot, but we burned ourselves out in the process”http://www.facebook.com/

I found the Article / Matteoli Interview and had to share my excitement –  and some of the incredible music The Weary Boys produced. Along with a track from his now band The Preservation. http://www.wearethepreservation.com/
