Here is the almost finished item, just waiting for the right shape silver toe clips to be delivered. Maybe I'm biased as I think all my bikes look good but I think this one looks particularly gorgeous.

Now shortened the chain and fitted cage pedals, having remembered why toeclips do my head [And shins in].

Wow! That's great! I don't usually "Get" single speeds but I like that. It looks better with lenticuler wheels that I ever thought one could.

No, I like his bike. I'm not sure about that patio table, but I do like the bike!

I hope you have strong legs if you're planning on skid stopping that bugger.

Great looking restoration, I bought one of these new in mid 80's and still have it tucked away in the garage, pretty good nick - frame solid with only a rear wheel rub mark on the inside of the frame. No rust I can see. few odd blemishes, decals need replacing. Was going to restore it but now I know a little more about bike set ups I realise that I bought a bike that was too big for me when I was a teen!! The bike measures 62cm from centre of crank to top of seat post tube.
Would be prepared to swap the frame for a smaller size more fitting for a 5'9''1/2
Any large rider out there swinging their leg over a too small frame let me know!!!!

Not shown in picture - I have original saddle, front wheel, reflectors, pedals, bottle cage.
