If it had discs I'd be all over it, but not sure I can go back to v brakes.
Nearly the same as my dads commuter from 50 years ago apart from his had a steel frame and Sturmey Archer 3 speed.

Hey. Don't knock it. It's stood the test of time. Pashley are still making them with the same Reynolds 531 tubing and charging a small fortune tredz.co.uk/.Pa…htm

I think the 8 speed hub would be a far better enhancement. Nothing wrong with a decent set of V brakes as long as they are properly set up. Lighter too!

Not much to be had atm, probably due to the strength of the pound v dollar. These Marins are decent enough though at £250 (the bolinas 6.1 caught my eye). discountcyclesdirect.co.uk/cat…rid

​​Don't write it off just because of the v- brakes. Unless you're loading it up with half a hundred weight of camping gear, or live in mud/crud permanently you won't notice a massive difference between low end discs and half decent v-brakes.
