Yum yum! Now that's a shiny RTS!

Sweet RTS there something about a small frame'd one just looks 8)

Thank you very much!

I love the smaller framed RTS' although, if I'm honest, the top tube length is about as short as I can get before it becomes painfully cramped. I rode her 10-15 miles home after picking her up yesterday and it was my joints creaking rather than the bike!

thats nice! going to polish the frame?

Indeed I am!

The plan is to ride her once or twice (I just can't resist) and then do a full strip-down / rebuild over winter. As soon as all the componentry and cables are out of the way, I'm cracking out the Autosol :)

Agreed, it's a stunner. I don't think I'd like those wheels on any other bike but that Lobo just looks 'right'. A menacing beastie.
