Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for opening a separate thread about the bike. You should put a link in your bike of the month entry to this thread as everybody should see all the photos.

It was the late Dave Rayner(RIP) I bought it off a guy who got it off Dave at the end of the 1989 season.He seemed to recall that back in the day the riders kept their bikes at the end of the season,and this is when he bought it.He then used it for a couple of years ,and since hung it on his garage wall.It was a bit tired when i got it,but replaced all parts like for like.

Have you had it long?
I saw it advertised on a running forum a couple of years ago (asking for offers) but I didn't have any money.
I'll kick myself if it didn't sell and has been hanging about ever since.
