Looks quite tidy as it is 8)

Is there tape wrapped round the seatpost or is it just scratch marks?

It looks quite tidy The problem with it, its not shifting gears properly. Worn jockey wheels and chain I think? plus all the bearings sound a little rough. And yes its black tape around the seatpost it was looking a bit scratched and rusty looking

This bike looks mint - just the kind of retro steel that needs recognition - loving the pink/black and the fact its British Eagle. from the looks of the drive chain (mint) I would check the gear adjustment (cable tension/derailiure end stops) before replacing anything.

Awesome.
