To my shame I have never been offroad with the clockwork since I got her 2 years ago :oops: I convinced myself that I wanted the bike as pristine as poss. which was fu@king stupid. Until now I have been running very thin conti slicks but tonight I put on a set of panaracers and can't believe I have waited this long. Bike looks right now, off tomorrow to ride it in the mud for it's first run so thought I'd post a pic since it is almost a new bike....

Is it an SDG Bel Air?

If so, I've just sold a PLAIN one, which would have looked just right!

Still, it does prove a talking point I'm sure!! :wink:
