Had this for a few years now, great spec and is in fantastic original condition, no fading and has been kept out of daylight during my ownership to maintain the great paint.
I have made a few upgrades since owning such a nos control tech post, new saddle, refurbed pedals, nos chainrings, rebuilt wheels, chill pills and turquoise pad holders....

The paint looks in good condition.
I would have to carry the black theme over into the rims too :)

Thanks all, yes paint is great and I too thought about black rims but the mirrox polish up a treat and look bling with the turquoise nipples now!
Didn't get used once last year, so will employ it for light posing summer pub taxi runs at the very least, maybe a couple of visits to Swinley forest too...
