That looks really nice, love the colour.
What's the plan for this one?

Nice colour, I’m assuming a more reserved, or dare I say refined build with this one?

Chilli sauce? £20 and a drive to north Allerton

Wheels, tyres, cranks, possibly guards, gear lever, seatpost, cable clips, chain if it fits. A bargain. Shame bars are one piece or the stem would be in too.

Been in the shed for a few hours. Lovely. Peace, tranquility, total absorption. Bits cleaned up ok.

Lenton came with 3 speed 26” wheels as per original but I think the Armstrong brakes and wheels are better proportioned. Will be a 5 speed with simplex shifter. Plus it means I have options for the incoming elder statesman.
