    Why typical retro paint fade

    That is what I thought

  6. I like the colour! Original decals. Leave it alone!
    What size frame is it @biggs682?

    I went to buy a koga tourer, with full golden arrow kit this week. Advertised as 23"....was 24 & a half... gutted!

    Maybe it was previously owned by John McEnroe who famously yelled at it 'You cannot be Sirius'.

    Nice one Martin.

  9. If I had the money, I'd say it needs a trip to right about here. That's a real beauty.

    Sure we could sort a deal to a fellow cc member

    Just had first short ride on this and it rides very nice and the gearing would get you a long way up Everest for sure.

    Didn't notice the rear stay pump peg before!

    And now you can see the retro fade paintwork.

    Well used this for commuting on today and a work mate borrowed it for a quick 6 mile lunchtime ride and we both agreed it's a great machine.
