Thanx for that link i will have a look through it. When you say seat pin do you mean the actual seat post?
any colour scheme suggestions? i was thinking white seat, bar tape, tyres etc but not sure i could keep it all white. I think yellow would make it daft but i don't really know. Possibly brown tan colours?
aye, the seat post... sure there'll be no problem but you do see wanted ads for them quite regularly! Looks like you'll have a nice bike there after plenty of elbow grease. Stem looks rather high
