Really nice Gaz - my only constuctive comment would be the seat post stands out a hell of a lot - might just be the flash but one that matched the stems and forks might be nice. I love those forks.

Keep the seat post and keep it original. There won't be another about that hasn't been chopped and changed ....

After all , everything is in excellent nick and works smoothly.

Did you manage to source paint to touch up the few wee marks?

No did not, i have put on a thin coat of clear nail varnish might have a look but with the metal flake thru the orig paint, i might struggle and make it look worse rather than better, a wee bit of patina is never a bad thing anyway, thanks again love it.

I think Claire's Accessories Autumn-Metallics Nail varnish would be a good match :)
