Great looking mount, love the colour and lugwork.

Id probably put gumwall tyre on to make it look even better.

:lol: thought long and hard about putting on gumwalls, understated look was the first choice... but now i'm thinkin with you guys saying "gumwall it"
i might just max the bike out and slap a set on :lol:

she cost £195.00 in unrestored condition, maybe a bit OTT but i loved the 70's look.

i see dawes have started using the same decal again on their audex frameset.. awsome :lol:
