Recently finished ALAN.

Frame and forks circa 1974 according to info from ALAN themselves it was one of their earliest frames made. Finished with Athena, Mavic SSC chainset, Cinelli, & Sprint rims.

I decided to make it single speed as I think the frame suits the minimal look, had first ride on it at the weekend and its really smooth and a lovely ride.

Yes indeed after months and months getting all the bits its up for sale, would love just to keep it and look at it but circumstance forces sale - big shame.

I like it too. Even the little discrete brake lever seems to fit the bike. What is it? Tektro cyclocross?

Thanks for the comments!

The lever is an Acor Auxiliary lever - it was tricky getting something to suit the bike.
