A bit of spring sunshine makes most things shine :) but i'm pleased with how it looks.. the paint is quite old (ive known the bike for at least 12 years and its not been repainted) but still polishes up well.. I had it to bits most recently to get the frame powdercoated as that was getting quite bad in places, rewired it and added some polished bits :) Problem is that I really could do with something more suitable for short trips over country roads...

Not sure if ive posted these here before but there was a roadtest of a C&H in Biker magazine November1981 by Julian Ryder. He wasn't keen on the colour scheme (but look at his outfit in the picture ;)) and mentioned that it was only £200 less than the recently announced LM3... he also mention that the paint was falling off the wheels on TUR699W (which still exists according to the DVLA site)

Sounds about right on the wheel paint! It was flaking off my B&G MkII when I collected it new from OME in late '81. Reg is SUD ***X.  Noel
