Had to park this for a while due to changing personal circumstances but recently found some time to work on those wheels and got some chunky IRC Z1's on. Bit of resto work to do on the cranks and that'll be about it. Apologies again for absence on the forum and FB recently and thanks for all the kind words ;)

Thanks lads, I appreciate that :)
I got the cranks finished and fitted today. Just got to sort a chain out and it's done...

...can't help wondering if I need a bigger set of bars now though :/ If anyone has any that'll be suitable... ;)

Finally all together. I swapped out the black SR Post as it was a few years out and put in a Strong Post instead which is probably closer. Pretty happy with it despite it taking so long and almost giving up completely. Big thanks again to all those that helped me along the way. I'll get some better pics done when I can :)

This is how it came to me:



Peace and love ;)
