    Very nice looking bike and a reasonable (at very least!) price. Good luck with the sale - I already have one so, regrettably, am not looking to buy.

    Thanks Aidie, yes it looks and rides well. Can't be many in this condition left. The day I finished it a guy made me a much higher offer at the pub I rode to but I wanted to keep it for a while so said "non".

    Three words of (independent) advice for you Martyn ...

    "BUY IT - NOW!"

    At this price it's a no-brainer if you want a bike rammed full of character, charm and personality. They're not light; they're not massively fast - quick, but not fast - and they're not exactly a REAL dual purpose machine (though they are fairly capable of 'moderate' off road use if you're big and bold enough to try it) but they are a real pleasure to own and ride, with a huge "presence" on roads and might be eminently suited to our pot-hole blighted highways!

    Genuine spares aren't always easy to find but that's true of pretty much any machine that's now almost 30 years old!
