Got a bit further on again today,pic shows the front wheel clearance which is a wee bit tight so need to get a shorter drop calliper or would it be wise to have a back brake only as it wont break any speed records?

Looking good :) those wheels are a good fit.

Fit a front brake. The bike might not break 10mph but if the rear brake fails for any reason then it will still be hard to stop safely.

Nice to see it taking shape.
