Cheers chaps.. it pleases me muchly that there's a lot of respect for these old underdogs. Solid, reliable, fun to ride and good to look at :D

@andrew: the tyres are Panaracer Dusters (F&R) and I bought them a while back from member 'racerx'

I've been keeping an eye on those... good price, but what puts me off is the black band running round the bead, I wonder if you can see it when he tyres are on the rim?

Wook.. those tyres look the nuttz, I've just tried to order some but they're out of stock :(. As for your Team.. well that is a dream retrobike 8)

Nice crankset too; is that from the shop on eBay selling a load of tasty NOS stuff? I bought the same cranks from them a few weeks ago and stuck them on my Klein.. the M730 looks lovely in black and even better in brown :twisted:. He's got more listed and I wouldn't mind buying another for 'spare' :facepalm:

Yeah I got the crankset from "cycleclynic" on ebay...but at that price I defo can only justify one set for now! As far as the tyres go, they came into stock yesterday and sold out within a few hours (I managed to get a couple of spares!) but they are due back in stock on the 26th March, you just need to be quick. Before now they has been out of stock since before Xmas!!! Oh and defo better brown BTW!
