Is this the actual bike that's for sale on steel vintage? (it has the same rust pattern on the front mudguard stay.)

This is how it's looking ATM. I cleaned off some paint on the mudguards to reveal the light blue, I then sprayed it down with some clear lacquer. It's a matt lacquer, I'll get some gloss to try and bring back the sparkle in the blue. I took the original bars and turned them upside down.

I have bought another pair of oxford type bars that are wider (the OGs are so narrow), so i'll put those on (upside down too), some white wall Raleigh records, a white old vinyl brooks seat and it'll be done (after I get the brakes working and clean the chain).

I would have thought so.

This is how it looks now. I scrubbed it down and then lacquered it.
