"Due to a prior engagement I will have to miss out. This time last week I had stepped into Salvo's and found a very dapper Giorgio Armani jacket, perfect I thought. And a further search revealed a more appropiate Tweed, had them dry cleaned n…"

I was at Mick Mazza last week and picked up a ex Frank Conciecao, so now it's in Fraks shop getting a service."
"I would say your name rang a bell to him but we did not discuss further( selfish me). He was tickled that I had rang and asked ( and I don't know him) I'm sure he would be happy to chat to you with your biking past. Nothing to loose!"

"Yep, I think I cried when I got it back also, that was about 27 yrs ago. Very lucky indeed. Frank Paino had it come into his shop to be painted or something like that. I just rang CK and he has sent all transfers to Star Enamellers @ Bankstown. I…"
