I like the fact, he didnt cut corners, and everything is minty, spec and period correct, and shop floor brand new.

And it shows, that a mainstream top of the range model, can step up and show the Gucci top drawer and wallet wavers how it should be done.... 8)

Credit where credit is due...............BOTM winner for me for sure....!!!


Couldn't agree more :D



To be fair to you Dendy, yours are the same...!.. 8)

Thanks for the vote of confidence Carl.

I tend to get a bit anal with my bikes - as you know - so I did try and restore the bike as close as possible to the original spec. I have toad it it turned out a lot enter than I expected - especially the Maguras.

BOTM would be a good end to the build, but I can't see it somehow... :?

Superb renovation there :D 8)
There should be a banner for those that have brought new life to otherwise dead frames :? Just a simple 'renovator' or an R to save on space


Thank you dyna-ti, it's all about bringing life back to the old British classics for me.

Their quality seems to get forgotten in the midst of the American marketing machines so if I can highlight a few of the gems we have in this country then job done.

Could we have 'British renovator'? :)
