My brother Richard has been visiting from England with his girlfriend, Sarah.  Last week they visited my Aunt Lorna (84 years young!) and they picked up a bike from her Port Fairy house which was "surplus to requirements."  I had supplied her with the bike about 25 years ago, and it was very old then.  Anyway, the bike is a Bullock from Adelaide, possibly repainted by Super Elliot as a "Nestor".  Bullock bikes were made from the early 1900's to the late 1950's in Adelaide.  Anyway, the bike rides fine, and the brown dusty bike looks good against a brown dirt road, except its (one) gear is a bit high.
