Took it out for its maiden voyage on Sunday with a pocket full of spanners :) Just my normal sort of bike journey, supermarket then the pub! I was half expecting the b/bracket to be knocking, the cotterpins to fall out and the brakes to be squealing at the very least, but quiet as a mouse with no problems at all yet! (v surprised as it's my 1st full build). Image Image Image
Next step is to run it for a while then probably get the frame painted properly.
Although I've hopefully got a rod braked roadster coming soon & that could come 1st..

It's remained trouble free and I've finally finished the mod's to the old blue anodised bell. I've also been experimenting with some red electrical tape :) Image Image Unfortuanatley the original owner passed away before I got a chance to ask him again about who made the frame. So I'll probably post up a few pics in the main part of the forum and start another "who made the frame post". So I can hopefully get a name and transfers made up prior to getting it painted properly, now I know it's all working properly.
