What was the highest bid?

How did you get the finish on the frame sanding and polishing? Is clear coated or bare aluminium?

I'm thinking of stripping mine down and giving it some TLC

Can't remember now - £150 or something?

The finish on the frame is the original clear coat, just cleaned and polished with car wax polish. It's scratched to hell but it doesn't really show when it's clean.

Wow £150 is crap.

Did you remove all the decals?

Yeah the decals got jetwashed off years ago.

£150 is a joke - wouldn't even consider selling it for that. There's another thread somewhere about selling it, and how people reckoned it was worth much more broken up for components. Truth is I can't be bothered to take it to bits.
