BUILD PROCESS!

Only my third complete bike build I have undertaken and it took me just over 5 hours to complete. If there is anything I should have done better, or something that should have been done in a particular order, let me know, feedback always welcome. It's been a long time coming and a bit of cash but here it is, enjoy:

1. Handlebars and Stem Mounted

Image

2. Downtube Cable Guides Mounted

Image

3. Shifters Mounted

Image

4. Seatpost and Saddle Mounted

Image

5. Rear Derailleur Mounted

Image

6. Chainset Mounted

Image

7. Front Derailleur and Chain Mounted

Image

8. Cables for Gearing Mounted

Image

9. Brakeset and Cables for Brakes Mounted

Image

10. Bar Tape

Image

FINISH

Absolutely stunning! Excellent choices on paint, decals and drivetrain.
I'm interested in the total cost. Even though you seem to have opted for a " no expense spared " approach it reaffirms one of my key beliefs in retro bikes. It's that a good paint job and retro drivetrain will STILL produce a more desirable, more rideable and much cheaper bike than the modern plastic with it's weekly-changing engineering standards.

A beautiful bike, and a very informative thread. Thanks for sharing, as someone approaching my first road bike build it makes for very interesting reading.

what a stylish bike!
i really enjoyed reading your thread with the accompanying pictures.
I love the feeling of having a vision for a bike, then collecting the parts and finally building the bike.
Now a ride report is needed with added pictures!
So what if it cost you a grand - most new bikes for that money are absolute tat! :D
BRAVO!!!
