Nice bike, and nice too you got it from the original owner, he had it for 29 years and kept it in that condition. A couple of my bikes have also come from the original owner and it's a great feeling knowing it's never been in anyones else's ownership apart from theirs and now yours! He must have thought a lot of it 8)

Thanks, he really did love the bike, sent him a picture of the finished article and he was really pleased with what I'd done with it. I now understand why so many people on here have so many bikes, its completely addictive bringing them back to life, I'm already on the look out for another!
