Wow, the restoration and photos will give Ray Dobbins a run for his money.

I haven't yet ... but I will ride it :D (on a sunny dry day...which may be a while)

Gives me time to seek out some 50th hubs ...

Wow

If I owned that it would be hung above the fireplace and looked at all day if I wasn't riding it. (Not that the Mrs would let me !)

Very nice photo's too.

I like your bike, my wife likes your fireplace :D

Yes a very nice build. Got a couple of resprays due myself so may try the guy in Dartford instead, which is much more local to me than BJ.

Actually you're not too far from me either....

delicious - fantastic attention to detail, superb all round and a component list that deserved a freshly re-sprayed frame to adorn.

cancel the christmas tree order, just put that in the corner of the lounge and sit and admire

Thanks, I'm surprised no one has commented on the pivot cap nut on the rear arches.
