Well, she's done. Not yet had a chance to ride any real distance but took her round the block for a spin and it rides great. You are so laid back that you feel like Captain America in Easy Rider. Shifts pretty well for an old girl, not amazing, but didn't really expect it to. Handles great and the bars - about a mile wide! - are just fun.. :LOL:

All original apart from the tyres, saddle, cables, tubes and seatpost.... :cool:
