Smart frame, nice wheels too - looking forward to this one. The frame looks quite modern even with no braze-ons, I guess that's the effect of the fillet brazing.

Mark.

Yeah I'm not a fan of fixed gear either,however the laquelda came as a fixed track or simplex?geared option. I've already got a professional and I'm midway through doing a mistral so I thought a fixed might be a bit diferent and it'll be for sale rather than for keeps.

That looks gorgeous - I can't wait to see it up and running. HAve you seen the all original La Quelda on Classic Lightweights? I'm trying to imagine owning this and your Professional at the same time. I don't think I'd get anything done - I'd just be gazing at these all day...

Should look really nice when finished, especially with those wheels.

Be careful riding fixed, you might find you like it ;)
