Thanks,I'm lucky to have great contacts for chroming and powder coating who do my stuff very quickly.

Many thanks,I sold one a year or two ago and regretted it as I think the sport is the prettiest of all the Bantams so looked for a suitable project and was fortunate enough to find this one,glad you like it

cheers Digby

I agree with the others that you've done a really nice job there, don't forget the speedo cable though! Just kidding.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.
