The work on those Comp 3s and the chain is amazing. Such attention to detail. Watch out BoTM; can't see a competitor for that :lol:

An amazing homage to probably THE most iconic production bike for those of us of a certain age.

WOW - the DX pedals... the tyres... and seat...
Every single component just looks so "right", and the end result is astonishing; a true labour of love and a testamen to your skill. :shock:

Blown away by that PK ripper, look forward to your next model what ever it is.

The ski bike is awesome too, we have a ski bike thread on here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=153038
I'm building the red Marin one.
How does it handle the bumps at the rear if only one ski is lifted, do you get pushed over a bit or can the shock and arms settle that out?

there is a facebook page too: http://www.facebook.com/groups/65926540 ... 223664005/
