Spotted this and thought it might make a nice retromod winter bike. Bought it in pretty sorry state and thought I'd get it cold set to 130mm OLN and a nice new dress.

That's some new dress :)
Really beautiful transformation.

Now you still have time to get it entered into the retromod RBotM competition ;)
It looks almost a mirror image of JSHs.

Can't go wrong with a Rourke. Did they do the restoration ?
A lovely job. Too good for a winter bike now. For winter, you should have left it as it was !

Yes Jason Rourke did the paint.
It has to be a winter bike - that’s how I justified it to myself lol.

I’ll get joy when it’s outside a cafe next to all the hardcore carbon boys
