We were wrong
ok so I was saying how Steve's VA Sport was the gold standard of restos.
i was wrong.
it is the gold standard of original museum pieces.
it is all original (save some 21st C dirt on the tyres and some other very minor stuff) and in original condition.
must've been kept in someone's cellar covered in a blanket.
and not ridden for 30 years.
keen bikespotters will have already noticed the Viscount calipers above and how they match these.
*actually that's exactly what happened
