fasination with british steel custom builders, is no secret for me, this one came up, at the wrong time, but although it did need sum careful work, it was a rare opportunity and too good too miss, after some careful tidying and a full strip and nut and bolt rebuild, and sum heavy polishing, its now fully serviced and ready to ride......

as i am close to finishing another build, a dave lloyd, im going to save the experience of this bike untill the dave lloyd is finished, as there were sum friendly rivalry between british custom builders at this time, i thought it would be exciting to ride one and then compare it against the other after two identical rides........those that know me will appreciate the suspense will be killing me........ :D

thanks duke, thankfully this one wasnt anywhere near as bad, a seized seatpost, a strip down to the bare frame, to take care of stone chips to the rear triangle, all the components stripped, degreased, and polished, new cables, wheels trued etc, the frames non genuine decals removed, then heavy on the t-cut to get rid of the yellow tint it had accumulated, in the last 12 years, then just a re-assemble and service !!!!!!

just wanta get the lloyd back now so i can asemble it, and compare the two......!!!!!!!!!!!
