It is, but a badly scratched one. it's quite a bit too short, so I'm after a longer plain black one...............

Why don't you keep an U brake or Roller came rear brake ?
You've got a beautifull frame, and V brakes are nothing to do on it… :(
(Cantilever should be better)…

I would say the same thing about the MTB bar

Overbury Pioneer (hopefully) put together with anything lying around the garage and a borrowed chain. Now all I need a pair of rigid 1" threaded forks a long black 27mm seatpost and the frame will be off for some powder coating....
