Thanks! I really hope so... I'd forgotten how much stuff you need when you build from scratch. Parcels keep arriving in the post every day! :D

Did a bit of a trial fit today - propped up on the stairs because the spokes for the back wheel haven't arrived yet! Starting to look the part now. :)

Also acquired some lovely AEST CNC'd brake levers off ricktheuncivil (on here!) this week. Overkill for some bikes, but I think they look perfect on this.

Now just considering the idea of putting some 'specialized' wording on the sides - but in the nightmare before christmas font. Getting prices and thinking about that one :)

So far so good though, I think / hope!

In the spirit of keeping things moving, while I wait for spokes to come for the rear wheel, I thought I'd get the cabling sorted. Trial fit tied in with string for now (cable ties will be for when my girl rebuilds it with me).

Looking good though I think! :)

(Need to shorten the front brake outer a bit as well - too loopy for my liking)

Quick update... rear wheel underway and trialing some decal ideas. This is using a nightmare before christmas font, which looks quite cool I think... proper ones now on order from Gil
