Now SOLD and heading back to its original home village in the New Forest :)

Hey guys, some of you may have seen my restoration of this bike during the summer. It was my friends bike from when we were kids, unfortunately he can no longer ride due to a persistent knee problem and I need to move her along :(

I did what I could to keep it faithful to how it had been when we were kids, replacing bits it had obtained over the years, she's now a beauty. Certainly not an as new resto but that wasn't the aim, she is however extremely presentable and the mechanics are excellent, rims have very little wear.

Here's the resto thread:
