Bike Display at Hilton

Posted on January 7, 2011 at 17:00 1 Comment

Hi All

For those who are interested in the vintage cycling, there is a showcase of these wonderful machines on display at the Hilton lobby.  Bikes ranging from Aussie steeds to italian stallions, ranging in all years from early 1900's to 1980's and enough vintage gear to keep occupied for ages.
It comes round only once a year and duration lasts till end of the Tour Down under.
