I've been working on this project since March 08. Loads of members have helped starting with MrKawasaki who kindly collected it in Bolton and delivered it to Toddington Services 8) It was in quite a state then having lived in somebodies garden exposed to the elements :shock: I knew it needed some serious lovin'. My fears were compounded when MrK said "I haven't tried to move the seatpost".

Anyway, many a part was traded, funds were raised, and help came from all corners of the UK, Germany and Colorado, USA :wink: Big thanks to everbody, especially Gil, Pete, Tobias, Mike and especially Neil at Hutchcoat who did a great job on the paint 8)

Anyways, I'm absolutely made up with the result, and hope you all like it? If not I don't care :lol:
