Had this since about 1985 - Now looking better than ever - Well better than I've ever seen it at least...........

It's been off the road for a bit as I've been updating parts to super record as it would have been - Rode again a couple of days ago and was not dissapointed - Big cheesey grin - As well as being as responsive as I remembered, it now runs super sweet.......

Very nice indeed. Let's hope that we have some weather that will keep the tyre sidewalls that colour at some point in the summer.

That's an absolute ace! I dream of the day I have an earlier Rossin dripping in Super Record. Very nice indeed Sir.

thats really great, hope you have ridden it, the weather is turning tomorrow! Love that chainring, that would look great on my Rossin too, well done. I'd like to share your thoughts on the transmission as I think its smoother than my 1989 C-Record, very slick and quiet, and you can feel the gears in nicely with the larger spacing. Enjoy :-)
