Nice job.

I had one a while back - I did some work on it and then sold it. Was a really nice powder blue with nice flower detailing.

Ladies bikes like that are very popular at the moment, at least round here they are anyway.

Plenty of room for some smashing meat paste sandwiches and a bottle of Tizer in the basket!

Nicely done Sir! Excellent pictures of the restoration too. My GF has recently taken ownership of a Liz Pepperel edition Caprice from 1991. Very nice it is too. Heavy as a tank though.
