that'd be great....cheers :D

Fudge cycles weren't any help on the decal front I'm afraid - suggested eBay.

I'd get in touch with gil_m and see if he has any on file or can reproduce from pictures.

Sorry I couldn't report better news.

Superstu has a nice one of these above, although he is taking a world records time to fix it up properly.

I have rescued a sad one recently too, way too small for me so I am building it up for the wife. Not sure it will be used, so like you, building a bike I don't need but its fun so why not.

Liking the progress so far on yours!

I know exactly what you mean. Not been ridden once:

But I like it! If I could fine the same frame, but larger I may consider swapping it out.

You are right, mine does hover in the higher echelons of 'waste of time' :roll:

We should organise a wife bike themed meet. 6 foot blokes on 15" bikes and the like!

i've seen both your posts when searching about the frame :)

i found some lightweight tange forks with ritchey drop outs, that was on my old prestiege stumpy....nice and light and well springy, but they are what looks like zinc plated, with some surface rust, but that's no problem if you own a car restoration company :D

a dx hub laced to an unknown rim....any ideas what rim this is?

photobucket not talking to phone...not talking to pc!! this is why retro is best!!!
