Love these bikes but the saddle is way too big for my liking and when you get the post cut down it will look much better. Otherwise a perfect build! :)

More work done on her, got the rear wheel back from the shop today and fitted, also got the front brake serviced and fitted. Silly little bits done too like all brake bolts changed for stainless ones.

Top job big eck!

Coming along nicely that. Looking factory fresh while you at it too.

Is it a retoration? If not, how about some low rise bars?
