What are those wires into the saddle for, a little heating for those winter rallies? The front mudguard could use some fettling.

The brake pedal and rear mud guard are not right either. Anyone ever see it on the road?

The brake pedal may be personal preference, but it is pretty extreme. I agree the rear mudguard is rotated quite a bit forward, maybe there isn't enough to go around.

Modified Comet LH foot peg hanger on the RH side. For all that though it is a good bike to start with. These are all small points that are easily corrected provided the price is reasonable.

It is in Switzerland Ken! The only thing that is reasonably priced in Switzerland is a 1Kg bar of Toblerone.
