Nice. Elev12k, do you think I need to do lug lining on bottom bracket lugs? Or better not to? Cheers

@knyazb,
that's brilliant mate, I tried hand painting my Alves' lugs ( see signature below ) and made a dog's body of it. Much inspired now I've seen your " paint pens, " I didn't know they existed. Cheers mate! :lol:

Was a bit busy last week, so didn't have enough time for my project.
Just bought this Shimano freewheel sprocket. What I like about it - that it's nearly silent when you coast.

Also was thinking to get this chain. What do you think guys? Or shall I go for something more classic looking? Did Campagnolo ever made single speed chains? If yes, I need to find one..

I have had Campag pantographed Gazelle gear shifters but sold them. Regretting now, could've just leave them, instead of having holes in the tube now...
