hey up
cheers mikee ,the stems got abit of flakey paint but i think i can rescue it, its only around the clamp and quill post. the bars are ok were it matters but slight damage were bar ends have mounted, as for the frame ive already touch a few bits up with matt gray , and im getting some white mixed up on monday, after that im going to flat the whole bike "carefully" and have a coat of lacquer sprayed on it.

Great buy Lee, sure you'll enjoy building it up. The post should indeed be 29.4 as previously stated.
