Looking really good, nice job.
What had happened to the old tubes? Damage or deterioration due to age or other factors?

Bouncer is a 1999 or thereabouts. AFAIK her original tubes were from Henshaws. My 2000 model was the same colour and was starting to show her age in 2010 - I reckon the tubes had a fair few years left them back them so Mick's were well used and possibly beginning to look scruffy? My memory of them in Dun Laoghaire was that they were not end of life by any means...

They weren't holding air for long and needed vamping up but it wasn't worth spending money on the old tubes so figured a fresh start the best option
Plus you lot didn't like my pink wear patches.
