Thanks for the positive comments everyone, yep I plan to clean the the frame a little and put a shine on the other parts then use it for what it was intended for, getting around town and having a little fun with it on the weekends
@ velomaniac - have to agree with you about the 'rather cool top tube mounted gear shifter'
it's one of the things i found cute about the bike.
Also, if anyone knows Bristol at all, the bell should but a smile on your face. I had thought it originally came with the bike but I'm not so sure now, so I'm thinking of moving it over to my Dawes Kingpin '76. Should look even better on there. Here's a pic...
