oh, it will never be sold...

it was stolen in about 1999 - almost a year later, got an early train home from work, an early lift :shock:

saw someone riding round on it....

right by a police station too, so argued a bit and got it back!

it stays with me now until the end.

Rebuild number 46a:

almost had a fit locating original parts - defo OCD candidate.

Had flat bars, M730 bits ready to go on but just could not put flat/ riser bars back on - not after seeing this thread: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=26709



Anyway, the hope hubs will be away getting repaired so had these spare Velocity deep section rims waiting for something....

Weeelll!!! looks quite shit hot! I was quite surprised, I even have a GT Flipenfloppen II stem.

So anyway, not quite finished yet - nearly there.
