    128,000 + miles, photograph taken two days ago after washing and polishing

    No rust, no corrosion, no problems worth speaking of ...

    Pyrenees in June for two weeks, with maybe a few days away in der Eifels or Süd Schwarzwald sometime soon or in between time

    Looks like a lifting handle, useful for old fellers to get their bikes onto the centre stand!
    I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem.

    Wunderlich lifting handle, used for old fellers with metal knees, to get their bikes on to the centre stand

    The blue/black finish faded with time (handle not knees)

    Hi Ray, yes it was the Wunderlich seat recovered by Tony Archer

    Because of how Wunderlich had covered the seat, what with my wobbly knees, I wore through the stitching getting my leg across



    Recovered by Tony Archer we made sure the seams were not going to be in the way
