Hey rich just found this thread. Didn't know you had it posted up.

Just wanted to add to the praise and say thank you for letting me ride it round the car park at dalby. Pleased i didn't appreciate its rarity till i returned it though- i'd have been scared to ride it otherwise. Looks good filtly too. Beautiful bike chief. Dave
