The old B72 is starting to tear at the front rivet and I'm not in love with its matronly appearance. Which Brooks would you choose? I can ride anything. I"ll happily also change the grips and have some cream tires waiting for a home if needed here. Decadence is allowed.
I reckon the cream tyres would look great for a start, and maybe get hold of some Raleigh-style grips with the finger indentations? And as for a saddle a nice old brown B66 would look great on that.

Really nice bike - what's the story?
