Really? Small world! Well the bike is being well looked after as you can see. I was surprised there wasn't more interest in it really. The picture the seller supplied was a bit naff, and the information was sparse, but I still thought there would be more interest. I had £10 on it until 5m to go and then someone bid £25. I increased that to £26 and they didn't bid again! Strange.

Anyway keep a look out on eBay vintage bikes come up all the time. I was watching a few before I bought this.

I have my eye on some Dyna Tech decals on eBay. Not sure if I will try to make it look original in terms of decals, as the paint job is not original anyway. Still making my mind up!

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/decals2000?_tr ... 7675.l2563

Decals2000 is the e-bay arm of H LLoyd IIRC.

I know they cost half as muchg as the bikewhen you bought it but will look nice :D

Just a little update.

Bike is going really well and at the minute is my main steed. My alloy frame is out of action.

Put my carbon hoops on it, which to some will no doubt look vulgar but combined with the steel frame the bike rides really well indeed. Not bad for a £26 eBay bike.

Lovely effort. I think the bar tape looks good.

Cheers. I dirtied it down (last pic) so it's not as bright anymore. I've come round to it, but was toying with the idea of brown tape and saddle. Not sure. Might stick with what I've got.

Would stick with how it is, brown has no place on that bike....which is looking sweet btw

Not bad for a £26 eBay bike which had how much spent on it ;)

Yea you're right!

Ehhh, I'd say I probably threw at least another £26 quid at it :D

Around £150 total I think which still isn't bad. I love the bike (that's why I made it the main steed - and this was supposed to just be a winter hack!).
