Thanks... Most kind. Yes, I must get some good photos and submit it. So permanently gloomy up here right now though. It's not quite so pretty now with the bars changed, but still looking good!

Still not the definitive photos - just from my phone - but after waiting all winter and through a very wet spring I'm finally getting this machine out on a weekly basis. And have to say, it rides beautifully.

It's not the definitive build yet either, there's always room for a few tweaks. Mainly, perhaps crankset and pedals that may change. Still got a touch of more toe overlap than desired. Small Christophe clips, changing from Lyotard Marcel Berthet platforms to a set of narrower 1960 Campag pedals, and a couple of pedal washers on each still has cured it! Managed to find a 165mm Durax crankset, so may switch to that when I get it. Although it's in a state and will need a re-chrome (which I never enjoy having done to anything).

Anyway, here's the current guise...
