some time spent faffing about in the shed resulted in this
need a few bits yet crank caps valve covers and want to loose the cantis
forgot how much of a faff they are ,saddle needs covered too
and the top jockey needs swapped out for shimano one

You lot have done some nice things with old bikes :wink:

Unfortunately as I trawled through the gallery I cam across a comment I made about riding an inappropriate bike at SSEC10. As I seem to have strayed from that idea I think I'll try some loony experiments this easter :lol:
