Gorgeous. Love it. With just enough polished bling alongside the more patina of the old frame. That really has made my day. Great work.


Thanks spokesmann. Patina and bling do make a nice mix.

Hopefully someone else will get another 40+ years out of it :)

Seat Clamp

Is the seat clamp on back to front? The reason I ask is that I have seen a few bikes with the Brooke's saddle with the clamp on that way but it looks wrong!

Actually, I think you are spot on there. Looking at the old brochure pic it is the wrong way around :facepalm:

Another job for the list :lol:

Apart from seat clamp, superb. Lets focus on the quality and look of this very attractive machine.

The bike looks great though, there is something about bringing an old bike back from the dead!!
