I have one for sale, but it needs some serious TLC. Re-whip, but of a set etc.

I'll get some pics to you asap. the blank itself is pretty good tbh, but it has a bit of a leeward set (probably from being lent up on a cupboard) and needs new rings and total 're-whip. Open to offers once you've seen it.

Obviously the other gentlemen are before me but should they wish not to partake in the offer then one would possibly be interested :Cool:

pleasure. Its a 500 by the way. Half thinking about doing it up myself but having the time is always a problem!. It'll be good when it's done, but it needs doing if you see what i mean!
