Not much comment necessary – for those who have not been exposed to Silverlights yet: Please refer to Hilary Stone´s booklet on them, still the best publication on the marque, even after 30 years. Ease with Elegance is available on the author´s website and will be among the best cycling books you´ll ever buy.

Here´s some pics:
