The Prima weighed in at 10.4kg (or 23lbs in real money). I think I described it as a light-heavyweight! But it rode pretty lively actually. It came as somewhat short of a full set so many added parts were not true to the original although generally of its time.

Definitely worth the effort. Lovely job. Must’ve been a big schoolboy?

Loved following along with this and really like how it was restored to like new, same colour, same components but wow what a difference. Really lovely.
I do like the light blue one and imagine that would look amazing returned to as new.
Keep up the great work as it is inspiring me to get my BSA Golden Vase out the loft and do something with it. I have a few things already keeping me procrastinating, but maybe one for the winter.

Thanks and yes I think the little upgrades have added to it without being obvious that I have changed it a little. Sadly no one does the decals for the light blue one yet Jamie and I think they're too far gone to get decent copies from but it can stay in the shed, its stripped down ready to go so I might clean all the bits I can over the winter in readiness for doing something with it next year.

Edit. How about a new category for RBoTM? Gas pipe specials. Just a thought.

It sounds disrespectful to call it a gas pipe special.
That’s a great idea for a theme, watch this space ;)
