That looks lovely - but what is that clipped to the top of the downtube?

Thanks guys, yep this is the one that ended on ebay today. I can't wait to turn it into a proper bike again :D

I am guessing that it is some chipper puncture repair kit carrier on the down tube. I initially thought it might be a battery for a front light, but that would imply that the owner rode it at night, which I doubt.

God knows why the rear mech is covered up, maybe because it's a STX :? :wink:

Pics will definitely appear back on here, probably until you are sick to death of it!! :lol:

Lovely bike 8)
