I'm not showing our lass, she'll be wanting that sort of finish on the purple mile eater next.


Some pink box lining might be just the job! :xmas-big-grin:

I think the style police might have a word or two to say about that.

After a successful Retro bike of the Month win for our Jim with his Electron Super five, I’ve finally managed to get him in the workshop. Ok so it was mainly bolting stuff on whilst I do the chrome cleaning of the rims, but if he’s holding a spanner, I’m happy. :D
