    Many thanks, that worked but I seem to have lost all of my 2015 posts apart from one.

    Not sure what could be the reason for that but thank you anyway.

    That is a pity as it was a pretty bike, but I would imagine like chrome, nickel plating would add a bit of weight as well to the bike.
