Hmmmm

Your definition of a 'fine day' be differ from mine. We had 6 fine days last year!

Hope you are keeping well, the bike is still awesome (best word for it).

Very nice , is the seat post actually the seat tube going through the seat lug? and does the bolt at the back just attach the seatstays to the seat lug ? cheers Ian on the Gold Coast

Yes Ian, the seat tube is the seat post with the seat stays attached to a lug machined at the rear of the seat lug.The frame was build to my size and is not adjustable.

Not too much, just wanted something stronger than general purpose 6061, the tube was purchased fron a aircraft supply company in Sydney, I remember paying $10 per foot a steep sum over 30 years ago.
