Have you got some measurements, trying to work out which thorn size 'small' could be.
Also straight or drop bars?

Hello ,
I'll get the specific measurements tomorrow when I go into the garage.
They will be on the receipt/order form.
It's a straight bar.
I replaced the thorn bars/stem and seat poist with Titanium bars/Thomson post and stem.
So there are options for either the original or asa is or both at a bit extra cost.
Regards,
Steve.

Sounds a lovely bike, too small for me unfortunately. Good luck with the sale.
