Back to biking

Post by domrogers0 on Mon 03 Apr 2017, 7:33 pm

A quick intro to say hello. My name's Dominique and  I decided to get back into biking this year after a gap of 25 years and bought this little beauty. It's got 32,000 on the clock on a 94 plate and is in smashing condition. I've had a set of hagon shocks put on to lower it and taken some out of the seat to enable me to touch the ground comfortably but other than that it's just a standard bike.
So I'm looking forward to the warmer weather and getting out on it a bit more.

Thanks and well spotted re the side panel. Yep got both sides but will need to find new ones in the future as they have cracked around the mounting post. Guessing that it's a pretty common problem?
