    I picked it up Ebay a few months ago. Looked like it had been riden a few times then buried beneath piles of junk in a shed for the last 24 years.

    Original paint. Just stripped everything down (grease had turnd to treacle). New cables, rebuilt wheels with some nice stainless spokes. Original brake blocks, 89 Spec Ground Control on rear + 89 Trek Matrix tyre front.

    Just wish I had kept the white Conquest I had back in 1985 – bought new from the long defunct Summit Cycles in Blackburn.

    24 years old + rides like a comfy pair of slippers. Early British steel. 😉

    Amazing.

    My uncle had an 88 version with Black 531 frame and forks. Just discussing the other day how inspiring the photo of Nick Crane with his conquest above his head on Kilimanjaro was.

    A gem. Look after her.
