REALLY!!!! Thanks mate- noted. FYI This bike belonged to an old priest - he lives next to uncle in a small country town and handed it over as he no longer rides... I think it is cool to have an origin story... know of any pages dedicated to that?

YES, REALLY!!!!

cool story. would have made an interesting first post.

anything else to add? perhaps i should keep an eye on both threads, just in case you're not sure which one you're going to update?

oh, and here are your images

it appears to be a very nice half-restored gaspipe clunker. enjoy it for what it is, and the story it tells.

Try Pacific Plating, Pinkenba. He does a bit of bike stuff.
