Very nice.  The tubing/welding and tapered rear stays on T/A's are pretty stunning.  Check out my white one with red components.  Pretty iconic bikes... 

A nice polished Tuf neck seat clamp would look nice on there - just to break up the white, a bit.  I've got one I'm not using, if you're interested...

I do find the TA geometry and teardrop tubing an attractive feature
add that to the bikes history and your talking about the iconic bike of the 80's (IMO)

appreciate the positive comments, cheers guys
