    Cant really do much until my next improvement arrives so thought id paint the calipers as they were looking rather tired. Hopefully she will be assembled friday fingers crossed.

    Be good to see this up and running back out in the sun again. I'm intrigued to see how the front brakes look in silver behind the Volans as that is the look I'm going for
