    I was thinking of going LED for all lights, so that even a relatively Italian electric system could run them with ease, and yes, I was going to add a pair of extra spots. The ones I used on my Bonnie...

    So what?
    Bacteria are everywhere. Live with it, rather than getting all cleansy about it. Most strains of E.Coli are harmless anyway (from WHO)

    Sorry, but these are only rare because they have taken ages to start delivering them and they are doing so slowly to manage the "waiting list".

    Got the bug with the Bonnie / Desert Sled project, so next I am doing what I would call a "Swiss Army Knife" of bikes.

    Interesting point, not one that I had focussed on.
    The Certina badge on the dial is indeed a dull grey, with the Certina concentric C's in a gloss black print over the top.

    I agree, overall, but at the same time I have to admit that I would be a little disappointed that the dial re-finisher had not sought out the correct Girard Perrgegaux font.

    Love that yellow-dialled version, very nice. I have had a look at the caseback too, nothing, rien, nada. There is plenty of wear there, so anything that was faintly applied might have gone, but if it...

    It is an interesting mod, and whilst I am not sure it gels completely, I am really drawn to the fact that the dial has quarter numerals and linear indices, and the bezel has 1/6th numerals and linear...
