Now that is what you call original!

I remember being blown away by the bright yellow version, but I never got to ride one.

Polished up pretty well I'd say.

liking this :) that BOSS decal looks potentially easy to mask off and touch up again as its quite large...have you entertained the thought of doing that?

Hi,Yes I did thing about doing that but the British eagle name on the top tube has suffered to so just though of a good tidy up and not a full restore
As it all blends in with use/age.
