Mega-woot on the 753 returning to the fold, Oli. That was very droolable in the day, and it great to see that karma / aligned planets / chance / moolah has got the ferrous wonder back to Berhampore. This will be your greatest build.

Sadly under the rust are lurking a few nasty cracks in key areas, so I'm really not sure it will ever be ridden again. Even if not, it feels good to have it back again.
