The frame has been touched up in several places but it's been done quite well. I don't know if it's the colour but they just will not photograph.

It's a lovely smooth, fast, responsive and well planted bike.

Everything works as it should.

Safe distancing collection preferred from the GL2 area of Gloucestershire.

Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer.

Asking £475 but I am open to sensible offers.

Re: Size

So, I've been asked about size.

Um. I would say 5'6" - 5' 8" tall.

As you see it in the pictures, it's set up for someone in between.

Hope this helps any prospective purchaser.

With regards to how it rides:

Pretty much like a Thorn but smoother and it's much nicer looking.
