Very nice, must get me some new side panels and a tonneau cover, looks really good when you get caught out in the rain.

I managed to lose the chain tensioner Y-clip yesterday, and buggered the spring too when removing the chain tensioner. I have now e-mailed Chas and hope that he has some left from the ones he made. Until that arrives, I have to take it very easy when pedalling to minimise chain slip.
