I've got one that looks like this too. The cloth on mine is really dry and cracking though, so I'm still thinking of doing the shoelace trick you posted about

I've seen this colour scheme before and I really like it - black rims & tyres, dark green frame - looks great and like the cream in there too.

Nice! I'm glad you grabbed that while it was still available. It looks like an interesting hub & easy to find facts and opinions written about it. Sounds like it works well if you don't overload it...

I must have missed that cool Norman in your previous posts, it's got some great slack angles going on, is it sports sized or is it a roadster? Nice looking bike anyway :)
