Nice job, great to see someone give some tlc to a bike which would be overlooked - and even thrown in a skip - by many. This should look sweet when it's done. Nice write up too, thanks for sharing.
You might get more interest on this thread if you shift it to the 'retro classic road' or 'reader's road bikes' section (this section is for bikes newer than 1998).


I'm not too good with website to be honest I would have no ideas how to move this lol...

Welt tonight I've cleaned the original John bull brake blocks with a wire brush and put them back on the bike, and started cleaning the peddles.

Just the front wheel and tyre and will be taking her out for a quick around the block test then on to eBay.
