There are a few areas of paint loss which I've left untouched. Should be easy to retouch with green enamel.

There's just one broken spoke on the front wheel and the rear tyre is worn.  Apart from that it's good to go!

Peter Bird only made custom frames and the seat tubes were swaged to fit a bespoke seatpin length currently 30.0cm front and 21.5cm rear.  These of course can be cut down or replaced to suit.
