Just snagged this on ebay - bit of a flyer, but apart from the mudguards it looks largely unmolested. Main thing is, it's black with lime splatter :)

Updates when I've actually got my hands on it :)

Collected :) Splendidly original, but slightly neglected - there was about a pint of water down the seat tube, good job it's aluminium ;-). Will need plenty of cleaning and some new bits (BB, cables), but it's just the right sort of tatty :)

Some crappy torchlit phone pics:

Yup :) Pretty chuffed that that was there - I've never actually seen one in real life. I can't think of any other bikes that came specced with them. It even works, although the collar that the handle clips into is bent out of shape and the handle pivot is a bit of rusty bent wire. The pivot'll be easy to sort, plastic collar less so - wondering if I can soften it in boiling water and persuade it back into a useful shape.

Blackburn made some chunky pumps that may have parts which fit... Will it fit a tyre without moving the saddle?
