After this, I've now left the frame at the powder coaters for a cream paintjob! I'm painting the lugs myself in plum. I'll keep you posted.

The downtube shifters are a bugger to reach but it's a lush ride! If I could recommend anything it would be the HUGELY expensive but lovely Brooks leather handlebar tape.

Click on the pics twice to make them huge.

Had to have double pivot caliper brakes as the old ones wouldn't stop me!

Well chuffed with the Charge saddle for comfort AND colour match.

Mark,
Very nice, but I'm not sure about "click on the pics twice to make it bigger". I think it's quite big enough..................
The saddle works really well...........
