This is where I thank the forum members for all the help and modestly submit pictures for consideration.
Stricken lions have been known to befriend people because they knew - somehow - that doing so would result in the removal of a thorn from their paw which would otherwise kill them. Having been saved and when completely healed they then feel compelled to return with their cubs in gratitude and homage. This is the law of the jungle; and, it applies to the internet and bicycles as well.
Here's the Raleigh Delta as finished. Gone for a retro look, more retro than entirely appropriate for the frame but one that emerged from the collection of bits that I had that seemed to fit without to much effort.
The MAFACs were too much of a pain to fit because of the drop but I managed to get the Weinmann Schwinn centre-pulls in instead, which I know will make all you chaps slumming it on Campag Deltas positively Emerald with envy, but there you are.
The front works really well, surprisingly, and the back is about as heavy and squashy as the owner but both feel quite progressive and have some power.
I found a big chrome shiny head race made by Tange which I used as it looked pretty.
I was bought some nice Cinelli bartape for Christmas by one of my sons, Henry, and he chose the perfect colour !
The back brake's performance may well be due to poor cable routing, less than optimal angles and the fact that the caliper is at the limit of travel to ensure reasonable contact between block and rim.
I need to put on a reflector too.
Here's one from the other side.
As far as I can recall the wheels are old Weinmans,the hubs are by Maillard, transmission is various Shimano (600 rear mech which is really pretty) brakes already mentioned.
Pedals loaned by my friend Barry who who has a lovely Falcon Fixie and introduced me to this forum. Other bits and bobs from Cadence in Bath - thanks chaps - and the powder coat was done at Aztech in Trowbridge. Super job, too.
In true Hollywood fashion; thank you for making it all possible !
