    This thread makes me realize that I need to change my interpretation of rebuild. Everything looks brand new as opposed to good enough clean and running perfectly or very close to. Even though I don't like these older models I'm glad someone does, it's inspiring to see someone caring for these bikes so much.
    Cheers mate!

    Being old enough to have been able to have one when it was new, but funds didn't allow, meant I had to wait. The prices for these are pretty stable and the SP versions are going up in price, so I see this as both a long term investment and a piece of sentimental art to stare at for years to come.
