Just completed a light resto/refresh on a Friends "Roy Thame", it was in storage a long time and sadly become very jaded.

What a difference a bit of T-cut, new wheels, tyres, cables and bar tape will do.

Looks nice but not sure the saddle & bar tape colors match coordination properly

The saddle is original and bartape was my friends choice, it’s in the eye of the beholder.
What colour would you go for?
