The paintwork on the frame is in superb original condition. The finish has had a light coat of wax to preserve the finish and it really glistens in the sunlight. All of the original transfers are in immaculate condition with the downtube decal a particular marvel. There are no touch ups to be found and, of course, no dents or dings. All of the chrome is in excellent condition with good depth to the shine on both the rims and chainset. Nice features include a large Chrome 'Ding Dong' Bell and a mint Bluemels Lightweight pump. The stem and bars are in lovely condition and offer a great riding position. Siting a top the Terry's saddle, hands resting on the original 'Shockstop' grips, this is a time machine straight back to the mid 1930s. This one really is in time warp condition and its such a joy to ride!
