Thanks guys....

Not sure on the bump guard, the jury is still out. :?

Well, the frame is now completely stripped, and waiting for some gentle sand blasting. The only disaster is the stem was seized, and in freeing it i've managed to snap the brace on the forks clean in half! :roll: :evil:
Reckon it could be repaired, but they are air oil, and i suspect the seals are sh***ed, so easy come, easy go.... :wink:

Not quite, but close. Been used for the past 10 years or so for a roadie to ride backwards and forwards to work in Boscastle.
