Cheers, interesting about the seats. I did wonder about the fuel tank as it is just sort of plonked at the back.
So you reckon originally it might have had a bench in the back?
I am going to give the tubes a good clean and polish and see what they come up like. They hold air well, not had to use the pump at all in 4 weeks of ownership. You're right though, they are showing signs of age.
