    This is so light.
    Put in some bars and wheels to get a perspective.
    Wheels will change but I think I will keep the bars.

    A bit pathe racer vibe with a modern look.

    Nice paint job. You’ll probably find it’s fast and agile as well as being light. I’d put drops and gears on it, but that’s just me lol.
    Any pictures before the restoration?

    Looking smart :smile: just out of curiosity did it originally have a 531 decal?

    To be honest I can’t remember. I don’t think so.

    It was a reddish colour previously. Thinking I need to go and polish the brakes.

    Just remember to leave out the pads.

    Love those sloping fork crowns.

    Been mentally trying to work out the model, perhaps a nice 80's Super Pro......

    Was there any chrome on the frame or forks before the restoration?

    Waiting for a reply on this as my mate painted it for me to build a single speed. I never saw it prior to that.
    Just had message. Forks had chrome but were rusty so were shotblasted.

    Thought a quick polish yesterday was needed. Front and rear done and fitted.
