I've finished ( stage one ) restoring my 1989 Bob Jackson racer. For the whole story go here but here's the " after " pictures...

Many BIG thanks to Gordon at G-Whizz Cycles for the bargain frame and fork ( add it to your favorites as they often have retro bling come in for bobbins prices ), ABC Enamelling of Nailsea for the fabulous ( and cheap! ) paintjob and Vizual Impact on the Bath Road in Bristol for the lush graphics. Now to ride it! OFTEN!

if someone much, much smaller than you on an orange kona, or lurid yellow cannondale gives you a wave, it's probably me

you certainly wont be difficult to spot on this beast.

Nice build Agency_Scum - love the colour and the decals are ace!

One of my first acts on retrobike was to sell my 24.5" Bob Jackson track frame - see EdEdwards gallery. Was sweet :cry:

Great to see this up and running so quickly ... and looking so good!

I'm sure that top tube is the same height as my saddle :shock:

Erm, Gordon has a rather nice looking Dave Lloyd TT bike on the web at the mo ... if that's your thang? :wink:
