This is something I've been looking for over a very long period.

It's gorgeous, and so very original. The size was listed as a 20", but it's really a 19 1/2". Big on me but very comfy, with its short top tube and upright two-bolt stem.

I will fit it with racks and a trailer mount and use it for shopping, touring and general fun. The original plan was to fit a 3 speed hub and maguras to it, the almost complete M730 groupset on it is in such good nick it was a shame to get rid of it. Pedals will have to go though, I can't ride beartraps as they make my feet go numb.

Wow, the anodising has barely come off the wheels. Love the U brake. Looks like it would make a lovely tourer.

A friends older brother had one of these (my mate had the Scorpion), while I was riding my Maverick. They were great bikes and looked so nice. That one is really nice.

What a lovely bike, and those gorgeous period accessories. It's a beaut and I'm only slightly jealous.
