It looks pretty good. I'd still prefer an original though.

I'm sure I can see a '7' and 'Re' on a sticker on the seat tube.

Yup, it is Reynolds tubing.

This was in the cycling mags a while back (April this year I think) although it seems that the frame spec (725 tubing/Aprebic fork) has been tweaked from the pre-production one (presumably to lower production costs), which was Reynolds 853 with a Columbus fork.

The wraparound seatstays do look a lit like theirs.

Shame they put a carbon fork and threadless stem on it. Apart from that it looks tasty.

Edit:: and that hideously ugly front mech braze-on adapter.
