When Jimmy Saville died Great Britain lost one of it’s true eccentrics and a jolly good bloke  [update] most prolific paedophiles [end update].  I posted about Jimmy’s love of cycling and his career as a professional road racer back in the 1950’s here.

On July 30th many items from his estate are going up for auction in Leeds, including his bicycle collection. There is nothing particularly exciting though many of the guide prices seem very low to me and a few have Campagnolo groupsets that may be pretty decent.  [update] I bet whoever bought all these things are gutted now! [end update]
