I agree with the above. Your Clubman is beautiful, should clean up nicely. An AM hub is quite a find, as are the Sturmey Archer wingnuts. Treasure it! Ride it, for sure, but I have my doubts about leaving it locked up around campus.

Nor am I sure clearcoat is a good idea. I've thought about it, for my own bikes, and always rejected it in the end. Wax is good. Clearcoat just seems too radical.
