The wheelset was hand built on H Plus Son rims and have a slight V shape; they're based on Campag rims.
When you have a plan for a bike, then all of sudden and quickly you have to make decisions on the look. I wanted something modern with this build as my previous Rudge was an authentic 1930s restoration. I think I've managed keep some of the original period feel.
The saddle is a Team Pro Chrome in Olive. For whatever reason Brooks don't do bar tape that matches this olive colour, so will maybe get some grips in dark brown or plump leather .

But the grips will spoil that sweeping curve that leads your eye from the bars into the rest of the bike. Front lamp on it's way, remove rim transfers and that should be it.
Single speed, the ratio is just perfect - smooth and very fast. Much more enjoyable to ride than the Pashley Guv'nor.
Right then, next project!!
