Good morning from Norn Iron, the bike is taking shape nicely (huge understatement), I think that you are at an age where you have time to be fussy - i am getting there myself!! Patience is a virtue...

More pics and good luck with the rim search, it seems it can be hard to source NOS rims, i have been looking about for some too.

Regards,

Richard

My search for NOS Mavic open 4cd proved unsuccessful however I found the next best thing in gray anodized Mavic Open Pro rims and had them built up with my Dura ace 7400 8 speed cassette hubs,look very nice.Went a little crazy with the red side wall Michelin Pro 4 tyres.

Hi mate
I ope alls well with yourself and family.
Wheels look great, tyres should suite it fine without being too in your face.
Now lets see it all together...................please :wink:

Did the last few things to the bike and entered it into the classic bike show at the Canterbury velodrome last Saturday it was a great show and the first of its kind (that i know of) in Sydney.The bike took out top self built and top bike in the 1960 to 1985 category.Now that it finished and the show is over its time for a ride.

Superlatives to not even start to describe this bike so i will revert to my 6 year olds current favourite 'AWWWWWWEEESOOOOOOMMMMEEEEE!!!".

I love it, and the wins are well deserved - well done.

Richard

p.s. i see you have not got any snow!! :D

I wish i was a quick on my bike!!! The bike looks incredible - really incredible. Not much else to say.

A small joke - "If you consider splitting..." :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Well done, the bike really is the pinnacle of workmanship and to know you actually built it is amazing to me.

Richard
