What a stunning transformation!
Really liking this build, suites the bike as though it has always been there and really liking the colour.
That Simplex rear derailleur looks the business :)

Thanks it has come out really well, had a few hiccups on the way but very pleased with it. The colour came out a bit brighter than I had asked for but really like it now. Waiting for a nice dry day to ride it now. On to the next build a 1950's Ladies Dayton Roadmaster in an equally bright lilac colour.
