I'm also looking for a good condition retro seat for the same bike.
That could only be a Brooks, surely anything else would just be wrang.
True -- I'm on the case mate. Take a look at the pics above and see if you recognise a nice set of bars! They are still a possibility if I can get the right shifters etc.
I sure am having a lot of fun restoring this thing, so much so that when I get back from working on or teaching folk about trials bikes that I get stuck right in for a few hours. Jeez, I can't believe the amount of time it takes just to clean and polish bits on an old bicycle.
The mudguards were sorted thanks to an ex-Harley Davidson race tech who now runs our training workshop. He has brought some weird and wonderful stuff for spraying plastic with him......and we cleaned up a lot of Highpath parts with left over methanol/castor oil left over from our pulse jet experiments.
