Small update.

I've done nothing to the frame yet, but have been gathering parts for it.

First off, the chainset arrived, along with some posh looking rings, ok, black. And a bit of ano.
I'll be polishing the arms up, as they look like they need it!

Fancy a bit o' orange for this bike, the tyres come with a lot of info, which naturally will end up not being read before recycling!

Not sure about the Keo pedals either, anyone know of light alternatives? I also bought a stem that I though would be lighter than the one pictured, sadly not turning out to be the case so will be selling it again. I also have some Ultegra 6500 calipers. A bit boring, something lighter and not Campag would make a change. Any suggetions?
Also got the USE Alien seatpost free from a mate. Had one of these BITD, so will replace the shite allen bolts asap!

More to follow, once I decide which wheels to plump for.

Ooh very nice.

I shall be following this with interest.

My old race mountain bike is a Dave Yates I had made for me after blagging a tour round the workshop at Wallsend and I now have a DY/Joe Waugh frame that I’m doing up (okay it’s on my list of never ending projects) to match it.

I’m going to enjoy this.

A few more bits have arrived now.I have been holding back with some, hoping to pick up some orange ano for it.
However, an orange Hope headset is a bit strong, at £85! So may have to go for white or silver, in probably FSA unless someone here has a better idea.

Saddle colour not decided yet either, white or orange, I can re-cover something tatty I'll look for if I go down that road.

Bars turned up this week, so put the stem and brake levers on them tonight.

The seatpost was looking pretty tatty too, being carbon I wasn't really sure what to do. Tried a bit of sandpaper, wet and dry, T-Cut and polish, which seemed to do the trick.

Also gave the inside of the frame a good coating of Dinitrol. Except the top tube, which I couldn't get to, being closed both ends. Along with the stays.
After which I T-Cutted and polished it. The paint is in really good condition, with a few nail varnish touch ups, it'll look even tidier :wink:

Before any of you say it, that post is not set at Muz height! :lol:

Progress has been slow on this, whilst I've decided what I want to do with it.
Headset will be ordered tonight, couldn't get an orange one at a decent price, so a white one will be going in.
Got some replacement bolts for the seatpost clamp. The stainless ones are 5mm shorter, so got the longer black ones just in case. The original is the middle one.

Also the Ultegra bottom bracket arrived today, so that will be going in at the weekend. After which I'll give the cranks a good polish up. Think they will come up well.

Hope you all have a good weekend :wink:

If you want a saddle for covering, I have a couple with the leather stripped and ready to recover. Yours for postage, that might be about a tenner each though. One is a rolls, the other I'm not sure but it's a similar shape

Thanks mate, I already have a Rolls and a Turbomatic to cover. I could use those but I wanted something lightweight. I have a white SLR I could use maybe
