Well it arrived and so it begins I'm aiming to renovate it with intention of not wholly bringing it up to as new, I believe the passage of time the bike has lived through out to be preserved.
yes saddle need some tlc and is worn but some new foam and leather is all it needs.
Some decals need replacing and a the paint work needs sorting.
A new set of handlebars have been found.
A set of M700 brake levers needed- anyone have a pair?
A full stripdown and rebuild then voila!!

I was lucky - Volkswagen 'brilliant orange' was as near as damn it to a perfect match so mine was pretty easy to do.

That's probably a question for a new thread!

I have seen a Dawes that was galvanised and the lads at the paint shop mentioned it as an option, they seem to be able to do this in a similar process to powder coating. I am looking at ideas to throw at the overbury's
