Yeah, it's funny when they don't know what or how old it is. I was asked last year as I pulled into a pub car park in the Lake District - "Is that a private plate (The original 'Y' plate on my 2001 R)" - He couldn't believe it wasn't a new bike! It just shows how well these bikes have aged.

Will send a picture, when clocks are in.

Will start fixing, the carbon parts now. And then Fork service, will be buying new/used öhlins forks, at a later time. Mine are pretty badly scratched at the top (gold paint) and well it needs, to be pretty....

Even cleaned the inside of the frame.Tongue
