What a find! Pretty much original spec' too.

a RRA was my first proper bike, I loved it to bits and practically lived on it 'till some scrote nicked it in the late '80s :(

yes, swiped them of Norman - the originals were shot.

New bars that have been 'waiting' some 10 years at the back of the garage for a suitable build.

Bar tape and new gum hood levers on order - rather like the Schwalbes in black! might not need the Michelins... :oops:

Might be worth adding a pair of Secu Clips to the front mudguard to avoid horrific jammed-mudguard-ejected-over-the-bars type scenarios.

Very nice find, by the way!
