This reminded me so much of the E-stay Saracen I had and stupidly sold.

Anyway, enjoyed doing this, piss easy restoration, everything moved nicely.

a mix of components screaming out for black Deore LX :D

just waiting on a nice long black stem to turn up and needs some new grips

I like it!

'after winter' ? surely that takes the fun out of taking a British bike out in its element?

:D
