Worth keeping in storage for a future bike for growing children though. My friend is about 5" but in advance of 40. Don't tell

I don't mean to interfere, but it might be worth showing close ups of the front fork fittings and superior welds of this frame. The little knowledge I have about this bike is that it was made here in England, which may interest the nostalgic amongst us.
