I agree that something so small can make a bike look so bad and detract from all the hard work! Luckily you have done a brilliant job and it's nothing a few turns of an allen key won't sort out. Nice work :D


Yeah, y'know, I never even looked at that. I threw the saddle on before Christmas and have spent ever since focussed on cleaning up the brakes and reassembling the cable system. I haven't sat on the bike since last summer, the saddle position simply didn't register.

Saddle will be corrected by this time tomorrow. :mrgreen:

No, I bought that bike new from F W Evans in Woking in the summer of 1991.

1989 was light grey painted, 1990 light grey zolatone, 1991 dark grey zolatone.

:mrgreen:

Great effort, love the paint. Only wish I didn't powder coat mine now!
I've got the later year in darker grey. If your sprayer wants another job let me know.
Seriously good looking bike - well done 8)

Hi Matt,

He's a full time paint sprayer and very keen cyclist, so I'm sure he'd be happy to talk to you. PM me if you want his number.

Cheers,

Lee.

With all due respect, when you bought it is irrelevant.

1990, yes, light grey (like yours)
1991, afterburners (not like yours)

Oops... sorry, my bad, you're absolutely right. I even said it's a 1990 in an earlier thread (see my signature).

:oops:

Corrected now.

Sorry for the confusion. It was the summer of 1990 that I bought it! :roll:

I know, that's why I said the mix up between 90 and 91 :D

I almost didn't look at the thread when it said 91 ... :lol:
