I have read on the classibikes webpage that a 'few z1a came decked out in the original livery.

Chroming is a killer :(
Just had a long rear guard done here in Oz, cost just over $400 including the post.

My shiny spokes have arrived from Aus (Tasmania), and I'm ready for the wheel build and new tyre, who can do the rim rebuild near Leeds/Wakefield?
Thanks
