Good bloody job there sir. That is a cracking example of a no frills retro bike - clean lines, no bling, and even a bit of solihulls finest in there. Nice. 8)

That is very nice - great work!

Get it entered in the BOTM this month - it'd get at least one vote ;)

(p.s. I'd give you £50 for it :lol: - but if you want a proper valuation then there is a What is my XYZ worth thread some where :D)
