Got this back from Mercian Cycles who have done a good job of restoring it to its former glory. Probably appeals more to us 'old boys' than the carbon brigade Smile

Gorgeous Bart - as I would expect, of course!

Do Mercian Cycles specialise in furniture restoration? That's a great looking table!

Lovely.  I wish I could find an easy way to get my old Roberts touring frame back to Roberts so they could restore it a bit, maybe modify it a bit and above all, line the lugs like I wanted thirty years ago and which they just didn't do.  I simply melt when I look at those elaborate lugs of days gone by.  

Although I am NOT under any circumstances a worshipper of "old school", just old.  With an old bike that I used.

SR - I'm sure Mercian can restore just about anything Wink

Merci for the closeup.  Imagine those guys cutting and filing for no really good reason than to make them look cool.  My Colnago has the similar fancy lugs.  I would never buy a bike without fancy lugs.
