On another note, i would get the Tioga decals off that post (some thinners on a cloth should do it) it detracts from the looks. Nothing against the post, i have the same on my mokomoko, but on your build it seems to destract a little.

Do you find the curve on the top tube influences your choice of cake?

Thats funny cos I really like the Tioga theme on the bike!! I don't want to try and make it something it's not. :D

It's a bit of a new school take on a cafe racer, and the far eastern parts just add to the feel for me.I was going to put on a few jap motorbike parts decals, but I think it looks good without them.

Interesting. I would have put this down as more of an Eccles steed.

How about the blend of tea? I find the harsher ride of an alloy frames tends to put me in mind of a nice English Breakfast blend, whereas a handcrafted steel would err me towards something a little more, shall we say, Darjeeling?
