The renovated Argos touring frame.
It was decided that Ian's favourite touring frame needed some repair work to make sure that it still in a good enough shape for his next tour so it was taken back to the manufacturer, Argos Racing Cycles, for a complete overhaul. Quite a bit of work had to be done on the frame to bring it back to it's like new condition, including filling dents, straightening tubes and brazing new parts on that had become damaged over the years, after the repairs were carried out the it was then re-enamelled in it's original colour. The frame now has to be rebuilt with the original parts.
