Single speed or gears? You mention single at the top of the page, just wondering if you were still working towards that.

No, I've decided no puppies will be needlessly slaughtered - it is going to have gears! Goddamn bank holiday means I won't have it until Tuesday though. Spoke to the guys at Bob Jackson this morning and for a £10 they will do youa copy of the original workcard telling you when it was made, by who etc so thought that would be nice to have with it - just hope it fits in with the groupset I have planned for it!

Really nice paint jobs! Out of interest, how much did they cost to be refurbished like that?

Well it is £70 per frame for a straight respray, but mine came to a total of £270. That included 2 resprays, 2 sets of decals plus fitting, 1 lug lining, a frame repair, removing BB's, headset cups's and crown races, and the courier to and from my house.
