Yeah, still getting used too. Nice patina to the frame now with a few cracks and chips in the paint. They get better with age and use.

Took it out for a 25 miler to the coast and back on Wednesday night with the locals on their modern bikes. How they laughed when I rolled up to the starting point. I soon showed them the power of Klunk :lol:
They are surprisingly capable machines I could keep in front all night.

Brooks B72 in brown is the Klunker saddle of choice IMO. They just look right.

I hear what your are saying fella. The brooks i have on there i have had for a long time and was lokkign to run it on a rig. i tried it on my 87 overbury and did nto look right but i think i looks good on the klunker.

I will try a few more miles on it then i may decide to go fro springs :shock: :wink:

Cheers

I love the paintwork and colour scheme.
Looks like a fun bike to own.
