Big brother and my daily ride, this requires a full rebuild soon, the paintwork is in great shape and it would be a shame to respray so I'm not going to!:

Since these photos were taken I have switched wheels to something more suitable.

I sourced all of them from H Lloyd Cycles, they even have the 531 Ti logos on the forks. Mercian are actually ordering them for me, I gave them all of the details. Nick at H Lloyd cycles is very helpful.

Still waiting for the frame to come back. Just collected the wheels, they look great, these are the original Mavic OR10 rims in Gold with the old Campagnolo Record Pista hubs. I've just chucked a couple of new Conti tubs on for a stretch.
Very happy with the way these have turned out, especially given the state that they were in when I took the project on.

Picked my frame and two sets of forks up from Mercian on Saturday, they've done a first class job, I'm a very happy chap.
I will take some decent photos at some stage, still waiting for a few bits and bobs to arrive.

those wheels are outstanding.

I keep trying to talk mysellf out of record hubs and they keep drawing me back, those rims are outstanding too.
