That's lovely...best colour scheme for 'Dales too.

I'd love another old 'Dale but my fleet is growing too quickly at the mo.

I'd stick some Hope bits on and pimp it up a bit!

I'll hang on to my 'Dale thanks...one day I'll get round to rebuilding it (just need to stop buying bits for my other bikes).

TBH, I'd go with black as I reckon it'll look classiest against the black.

Unless you have all the blue bits already.
