Hi everybody!

I just finished riding this beast through Italy for 3 weeks - the sole reason I bought it. I picked it up from ebay
from a guy who had only used it once as well for LEJOG.
It's in great shape and set up to tour, proved to be an excellent, sturdy bike and handled well loaded too.
It was the first time I'd used Maguras as well and these were great on the descents - I also have a brand new bleed
kit I bought but never needed that I can throw in. All in all, a great, classic tourer that will last decades.
Some scuffs which I've tried to show, but paint is overall in very good shape.

This came with an old school set of Union Dynamo lights that did not survive the trip. Buyer need to remove and
replace with something more current (I would have thought).

It will look great once cleaned up, but alas I had to leave London as soon as I got back from the tour and had no time
to do so.
My touring buddy took the artful snaps for me, but between that and having him put on a new chain, I don't have the heart
to ask him to detail it.


Collection from North/East London preferred.

Thanks for looking!
