here is an ugly dream
now has a white and unripped saddle (less wet patches in the rain) and gaffa tape (and lock plastic bit) removed and no longer on the seat tube and down tube.
I am not sure if the seat post is seized (I am 5ft 7 and its fine)
It is currently fixed, with a flip flop hub (but the bearings on freewheel are bumpy AF)
what else- there is some rust, there is some play in the front end (yup that vague).
And someone made in the underside of the top tube for some amazing internal cabling.
But, I have forgotten to lock it a few times in the daytime in Hackney and it hasnt got stolen. For this reason I see it as a kind of Excalibur of bikes.
I smile when I ride it.
