Oh yes, very nice. Get rid of that saddle though!

What is the rear mech? Is it a single jockey wheel version?

Jimmy Saville used to ride an Oscar Egg (still got it I think) which is why he used to call himself 'Oscar The Duke Saville' in his early DJ'ing days.

The rear mech looks very like the 'Mondial' gear shown here -
