That looks lovely, Tipper. I really like the Mars Bar colour scheme as well. Had it been an option when they first came out, I'd probably have gone for that, but in August 1980 it was a case of take what you're allocated.

The white wheels work quite well I think, but they are actually a bit scabby and need a refresh, but that can wait for winter. I'm still not sure whether to return the wheels to standard (like yours) or re-do them in white. The white wheels really do give the bike a 'lift', but they're a bugger to keep clean. Mind you, so are standard wheels. The reason I had the wheels coated white was because road salt had got at the alloy and made a right mess of them. No chance of that happening now...
