Slow burn, this one. Most parts in hand, forks still under repair, one elusive tyre.... can’t wait to build it up...

Epic work from Dan Chambers to repair the cracked fork leg. Top bloke, also helped me source a shiny new titanium handlebar, arrow straight like the original. Thanks Dan. The build starts as soon as the posty drops these off...!
