nice and tidy looking! Classic bike.
Did you have it resprayed? Think some 22" flatties may have been my choice, but thats just me :D

Guy at work uses a Stumpy about this age as a road commuter, Judys etc. Tatty as hell, but still manages to look good!

looks cool what gearing you running?
big bars are the way with a s/s lots of heaving about if your climbing.
