  • Good work, frame looks in good nick. NOS or re-sprayed?

    Frame is quite tatty once you look close enough ;)

    Original paint, decals under lacquer, just a couple of hours worth of cleaning & waxing last night. You can't quite make it out, but the paint isn't just plain purple, it has loads of tiny pink metallic speckles in it too 8)

    I'll be finding out how it rides tomorrow at Thetford....

    ...It'll be an interesting shakedown ride, I've not ridden a bike with a stem that long in 20 years :lol:

  • I think the colour hides the marks well.

    Stem length takes some getting used to. I took my clockwork out for the first proper ride yesterday, 150mm stem and 560mm bars. seemed a little twitchy under normal riding conditions, then I went to stand up to get the power down and nearly ended up in a hedge :shock:

    Think I've nailed it now though.

    It does hide the battle scars well, only a little rust bubbling on the seatstay bridge, but nothing terminal, tis in great condition for a 18year old bike, same goes for your Clockwork, hiding under the grime was a great bike too

    I'll bear in mind your near hedge incident :lol:
