Thanks. I don't have it any more, but it's still looking rad. The new owner has fitted wound up forks which tighten the clearances. - it's a great bike

Pretty comfortable - but wears out jeans much faster than a leather covered saddle!

Cheers, I'm currently running tan walled tyres with box section rims (Ambrosio Metamorphosis) which is a big improvement. I'm also considering a fluted chainset - so it's getting a bit more "vintagey" as time goes on!
