That's a real beauty. You really can't beat steel for building elegant bikes. 8)

I'm a fan of retro framesets with modern gear on them. It usually means the bikes for ridin' not for stroking, but why do modern rear mechs. have to be SO BIG??? :?

Otherwise: Stunning.

Si

Thats the business mate- 19.6lbs HOLEY MOLEY!

modern stuff in theory is OK with me- in fact I think it makes it better in many ways (I like bikes that look like they get used) maybe those cranks are a bit fat for the frame though?

Superb -its a cracker!
