Was cleaning hard drive and I found this... I know Rumphy has seen it since his name showed up on the thread as the moderator....back in October 2004.

Now a quote from the original poster: "It's a project I did about 10 years ago to make an almost complete bike from scratch using manual machine tools. Components took a year, frame and fork took another. I never finished the front brake mounts."

I thought someone could enjoy the pics...


looks like an AMP B5 copy
