Here goes.....

The saddle is in excellent original condition with no major rips tears or repairs anywhere as pictured...there are a couple of tiny slits on bottom edge where seat bolt goes through on corner but not seen at all when fitted as pictured....you do real well find a better original saddle than this id say !
The seat strap is an excellent reproduction item and the saddle retains the original seat plate reflector and waterslide decal

The cover has no repairs and no cracks and both rear tabs present
Original decal
Original 123 window

The original paint does have some marks scratches etc as pictured from age and use and has been hand painted over in some parts pumkin orange but with a bit of elbow grease and some diluted thinners im sure most would come off....tho ive not tried !!...about average condition the paintwork as pictured

The original decals are still peeking through ...just in some places as pictured

All brightwork is ok to good but not mint and does have some pitting and chrome loss brake rub and marks here or there etc as pictured but easily better than average and not a red rusty wreck ......as pictured

Pretty sure thats correct tho difficult to be 100% sure as hard to read it in some parts !!

Theres no rewelding been done anywhere on this frameset and all welds are intact .....as pictured !!

All in all this is a good original mk 1 not mint by a long way but for an item near on 50 years old this has stood the test of time well id say and certainly better than most ....as pictured

Handlebars have no dents underneath from any previous forced extraction

Early tall seat tube on frame as pictured
