I was the same as sean, toyed with the idea of buying one of these as I think they are ace visually but always put off by the cracks. always wondered how they rode. ended up buying the yankee Funk instead. I'll watch this one, interested in the repairs approach.

It will mostly be a looker as opposed to a rider unfortunately,but I think its the safest option to try and preserve them whats left.

Saying that it will get its cogs turned around the park or on the annual trip with the father in law along the seafront.

I already know I wont be trying to repair the dents in the top tube, just filling and smoothing then will wrap with a chrome sticker sheet (not as awfull as it sounds,honest!)
