Not into old Brit iron myself but have to say I love that frame colour. Got a 950 KTM Adventure in the garage with a pipe off being welded so down to the one bike for now....... :(

My Dad had one of those in his youth, along with a tiger cub and a few others...he would have loved yours.

I would never pick it for myself but its a great looking bike!
