Sneaky peek as it was when collected is below - it was borderine rideable (so long as you weren’t fussed about stopping) until the tyre detached from the bead.

Some things had to be changed like the really short seat post, other things are being changed just because I have the parts (alloy wheels with an 8 speed cassette for example - which required cold setting the rear dropouts to 130mm)
I am genuinely not sure how far I’ll take this. I would prefer to keep the original paintwork but at some point paint would totally refresh the bike.
