More MV marvels make me happy
I know I rattle on about it a bit but I've got an obsession with unrestored stuff, and my rusty old MV 175 as featured in the magazine 'project bike pages' continues to supply satisfaction in spades. These thin clips made from aluminium, painted red (now faded) and perfectly folded onto the frame downtubes to keep the genny wiring place are wonderful - placed neatly on the bike 55 years ago, and never removed until I got my grubby mitts on them. Goes without saying they'll be going back in place, no plastic cable ties here. Sometimes the smallest things in life make me so happy...
