  2. Dear Brian
    I am contacting you on behalf of my Grandma. Thankyou for you kind words but she was unsure if you had the right John coster, because she has no recollection of John having any cycling buddies in the states or of giving away any cycling shirts. As a side note, strangely my Grandmas maiden name was Brooks. Spooky eh! we look forward to your reply . best regards Dan.
