lol@cant afford to. This bike is funded from selling my old fixed gear that I bought with a mixture of selling old adidas trainers on ebay and tins of guinness. Its a dublin built raleigh record frame, gaspipe tastic. I swapped a 26" mtb rim for the frame lol.

Its far from a big budget build, I'm a mature student lol

Thanks though, I'll post an update when tyres/chain go on.

almost finished, needs brakes wired, I decided to got with the centre pulls after all.

Its taken a bit of a backseat to the 1950's sun I'm working on as well..lol

My room is like a bloody bikeshop at the minute and have nearly gassed myself with fumes a few times. Incl the sun this will be the forth bike I have stripped and rebuilt from september.

Thats the folder I did, I bought it from a skip place for a fiver and stripped and painted it. Nice wee bike though.
