Sorry, I was unexpectedly out last night, out tonight and busy at work today!

So, I warned you this bit is the ugly...

Well this is what it looked like when I got it back:

Image

Let's just put that saddle/saddle angle aside!

I don't know what happened to that nice back wheel, I guess the 'owner' decided to keep it :(

The wheels are now generic Argos/Halfrauds jobbies.

My Deore LX rear mech had been replaced with this modern monstrosity

Image

Decals have seen better days, but I can always get new ones, right?

Image

At least it has that nice Syncros post I bought:

Image

Aw crap, what the?!?! :x

And that's definitely not straight:

Image

At this point though I'm thinking it can still be salvaged, the frame's still sound, all of these things are cosmetic/can be sorted, I can get new wheels, a new seatpost etc.
