Well done Nutty. Surely an inspiration to all us (me) lazy bastids with projects lying in the garage. Remember to enter it in the CBOTY before you sell it. Just think mate 1000 guineas would get you a good project.

At least when you come to sell Neville there's a comprehensive history of his re-build on here for any prospective purchaser to read and enjoy !

I reckon Neville must be the Most Famous Minsk In The World - even more famous (and definitely Better !) than the one Hamster rode in Vietnam !

That is bloody lovely. Couldn't you at least keep him for a month or two to make sure everything is OK/run him in/check all is well/other excuse?

Talking of bike projects suitable for the scrap yard McNutty, you ought to speak to Greenbat about his latest aquisition.
He might be persuaded to part with it.

I'm going to be sorry when it has to sell, it will make someone a great hacking/go to work bike, but hey ho, as I said in the past it's a hobby for me and has to be self financing. Great thing is though, thats another bike that didn't end up in a scrapyard or in a tip somewhere. Oh well.
