Thanks you guys!

The paint/powder was really dry and faded at first but a little work with WD40 to remove old gum and dirt then some AutoGlym Resin polish had amazing results. The bright sun helps a lot too!

Got to start on the Dawes Ranger now.....

Cool, do you still have the FW Evans ? You have a proper 80's collection starting ;)

Yes, still got the FW Evans, now that IS a real survivor. There are quite a few lovely Conquests popping up on here.

I only really go for the '80's stuff now and I really must get out for another SW area meet one day.....

Konaglider can you tell me a few things about this please, trying to update the wiki on saracen:

Seatpost size, rear spacing, bottom bracket (assuming 68mm shell but good to check). Would you know fork axle crown? Again, assuming thats 390?

Hi coomber, I've only just seen your request. I've not been on here so much recently.

I'll get those spec's for you and any other info I think may be of interest..

Matt.
