Glad you didn't decide to leave the frame. It's come up fine. With our winters, stone chips and scratches can get ugly fast - but it's surprising what the insides can look like if you're lucky.

Good luck with getting it back together and riding.

I definitely think you should go for a stem rather than a fish.

Been a while, but finally got the bike finished last week. Its come up really well. All in all, everything is original, apart from the saddle, bar tape, cables and mudguards.

I got the wheels done up at mosscrop cycles in southport. Really good, helpfull and friendly shop. They laced the existing rims and hubs up with new spokes.

Been out for a quick ride at the weekend and it felt good. Anyway, heres a picture of the finished bike.

Ive just noticed theres been a couple more topics started up on this model, so this may help them too.

Thanks.[/img]
