Thanks for the brochure link, and advice about the welds. Will keep an eye on that. I don't plan on hammering this bike too hard so hopefully it'll be OK :)

The plan is to do very little but ride it.

They used special paint on these babies, mixed with kryptonite or something, so look as good today as they did 20 years ago.

The paint is quite nice 8) I think this bike needs no upgrades. It's a kind of workhorse bike, just some thumbies and that's it.

The bars on these are actually titanium, I still have a pair off my partners peak on my ti bike that have been transfered through many bikes since once the turquoise paint was stripped off.

Yeah there is a sticker on the bars which says 'Titanium alloy tubing'.
