Second GT in a few weeks.....!
Really nice condition ....stripped and frame cleaned. Sooooo much dirt , took about 3 T-cut efforts to finally get most of it off. Think one more go is needed to be honest.
What a great colour the green is.....

ah no sorry....it was really dirty....no rust anywhere except a little on the stem.
Tons of years of ingrained dirt , don't think it had been cleaned since being bought , so the layers of grime probably helped keep corrosion at bay.

A job well done and stunning colour. A nice rolling project ripe for upgrading as and when time/funds allow...

Looking great!
