So it's my wife's birthday and she asked me for a new Viner set.

Thought I'd surprise her with something a little more exciting and engaging than just a knife and fork set: a shiny viner 'set and fork! :D

Short in the leg, long in the body required a max seat tube of 47.5cm- not an easy spec to find and this frame was probably bespoke to its original owner.

I've checked the official frame sizes and this one is comfortably smaller than ex-works offerings.

Being from Sheffield, we had a tour round the viner cutlery factory whilst I was at college. Long been demolished, the viner name is now imported stuff

Back from the paint shop and in my wife's chosen colour scheme of "Audi" Green (yes, really!) and reasonably close to the original released colour + yellow detailing. Nice job by Rourkes in Burslem-if only I could...
