You may well have seen this for sale here over the last months

Finally I bought it and thanks to some amazing help from Kingbling getting this bike down south, finally it’s here

Think it’s a 91, seems in nice condition generally, seat post moves, think it’s okay size wise

Rear wheel a bit grumbly, will be interesting to tinker with Sachs kit

Thumbies and brake levers not that sexy

Bars are narrow

Plan is to get it road worthy ASAP, want to use it as my daily commuter, as the pioneer I’m using currently doesn’t have rack or mudguard mounts, so I’m getting covered in grime at the moment

Not really looked carefully yet but if it’s 135 Oln then I will flip some other wheels in and get riding

Then I can sort the back wheel and figure out some decent tyres to match

Longer term, and into summer strip and rebuild and replace whatever needs doing as revealed by riding it over the next few weeks

Group set wise I think it pretty much original, so no major changes

Bars have been cut down, so will keep an eye out for something suitable

Thumbies and levers are a bit plasticity/cheap looking, but probably fine, and I don’t know what I would change them for anyway, so we will see
