I built this up on Tuesday, beautiful frame with great workmanship. Lovely attention to detail.

Still making a few changes.

Would also like to find out more about the builder.

Ha yes Joe it is the Bumblebee! Black Sugno 75s coming soon...

Fancy sharing the info on Bryan Warnett? I'm not great at google searching...



Cheers Shaun, it is a lovely colour, camera phone photos don't do it justice... Just remembered got some better photos with my camera the other day.

Great riding frame as well, the 531 super tourist is significantly stiffer than my 531c track frame.

I like the half circle cut out on the brake bridge/stay stiffener but one may wonder why not just braze it a couple of mm higher and avoid the extra work? Guess it would not be as cool then. Plus riding it along on the road it becomes a built in flint remover...

Just noticed this "Bryan Warnett" on your forum (had to join to post you a Comment) and can give you all the History you need on Bryan if you want. In fact this Track Bike (the Red one) was my Track bike back in the day and it has some history if you want. Its also part of a matching pair. This one was built for me by Bryan in 531 as the 'normal' bike but also he built me an identical one for Pursuit riding only in Ishiwata 015 tubing. Anyway, let me know if you want the history of both the bikes and Bryan.
