Nice Bike.... I'm a fan of Dave Russell .... who reset the back end to 130mm?....Thinking of doing something in the future retro modern. I like how its a fusion. works well and nicely balanced....nice

thanks for the compliments. 8)
Regarding the rear spacing it measures 128mm so i suspect that it was how it was built - luckily the 10 speed hubs fit in no problem and i can use all cogs without a problem.
The white tape isn't practical though so i'm going to redo it in black.

I'm a DR fan too. Great bloke, sadly missed.

Nice bike but please don't fit black tape - you'll spoil it completely!

Really nice bike, I like the mix of old and new...I'm thinking of doing something similar with my Koga.

Very nice. I like that a lot.

Inclined to agree about the bar tape too, the white does really set the total image of the bike although totally impractical.

Would look OK in black too though. Did you a quick mock up.

Yep, just as I thought, nowhere near as nice.

Keep the white - and wash it regularly!
