A very sympathetic restomod and the grellowest grellow in the land. If I had the wonga I'd snap it up.

Free 'great job done' type bump :)

Just the opposite. I'm going to journey further back into the mists of time and the unicorns are calling.

I'm going to be selling off a few bikes over the weekend.

There's something quite brilliant about that bike.

Top marks

I really didn't appreciate the awesome awesomeness of this at BDW - shame on me! :oops: In my defence the sweat & tears in combination with the flouro probably meant I didn't notice much at all... :shock:

If it were mine I'd hold it and never let it go. If ever there was a bike on here that pictures didn't do justice to this is it as it's beautiful.

Why do all the nice bikes come up after I've blown all my cash on some modern rubbish? :(

Oo-er.

That is very, very nice. You did know my Yo Eddie weakness, did you not?

Its' unsold appearance at Dalby would not be good for my wallet. I hope I don't like the colour in the flesh.
