It was acquired on ebay as frame and fork and needed a respray and re-chroming, came with original and complete Lytaloy headset and bottom bracket. It was resprayed by a local painter under my supervision when I stayed loyal to original gold color. Decals from H Lloyd and green linings applied by me.

I fell in love with fancy-lugged English bikes 5 years ago, after collecting italians for many years.
Thanks for reading
