So I took it out for a play this morning where I used to ride as a teenager, it's slap bang in the middle of Salisbury plain, so pretty much in the middle of nowhere, perfect for practising old tricks where no one can see you! I actually fell from a 4 ft ledge whilst lining up a side hop! No injuries though :)

There are still a few bits I want to get, a better looking brake booster, selle italia SLR XP saddle and maybe a better stem in time

All in all I'm very happy with the way it rides, the front end comes up nice and easy, I just need to learn how to ride properly again!

Prefer the white ones as they're the ones I recall, but nice to see another one out there :D

There's one on eBay at the mo, not that you need another (and it has nothing to do with me I should add - just putting it here as they are rare!)
