That looks lovely, just had my finger hovering over the "bid" button for a couple of the same type of raleighs on ebay. I love the Midas touch detailing.

That looks sooooo much better now. A huge improvement on the previous saddle and tape. I bet that tape must have cost as much as the whole bike though!

If you loo carefully in the second set of phtoos, there is a godlike gold halo surrounding the shiny bits, and a subtle gold reflection on the garage door. Such a fantastic bike - not a million miles away in styling from John Player Special Lotus F1 cars. Yum.
