Tony, thanks for the info on the frame, not sure why the Reynolds stickers are missing, paint looks to be original
Managed to take a couple of pictures, including some of some rusty bits on the frame, but I've just discovered that I need some more posts before I can attach them.
This being the first classic bike refurbish I've tried I'm uncertain as to the level of rust that can be easily repaired, is a local touch up worth trying or is it always best to go for a complete frame refinish?
I've stripped the bike down and given it a good service and surprisingly all it needs other than the cosmetic work is as set of tyres and tubes, unfortunately the sidewalls on the whitewall/blue stripe Hutchisons are gone in couple of places and are beyond saving.
Once the tyres are on I'll head for the country and see how it feels on a decent ride, looking forward to a more comfortable trip than on my old '92 Kona Kilauea
