First time I've shared a bike here so please go easy!
I bought the frame recently from the forum and have spent an enjoyable few weeks building it all up. Frame had to be refinished as it had a tatty home brew rattle can job.
The components are a bit of an eclectic mix at the moment (purists look away now) comprising bits I had lying around and some newer stuff. The emphasis was on function and cost but hopefully nothing looks too out of place. Eventually I'm aiming for full 90s campag with ergos when finances allow.
Still I love the bike as it is, it looks and rides great. Really like the feel of the compact frame, probably psychological but it seems very agile and quick to me.

Frame and Fork: Fillet brazed Reynolds either 653 or 753 - I suspect 653 as apparently 753 was unlikely to be chromed.

That looks really nice, the mix of parts together works for me. He does put a nice looking frame together that Mr Lloyd.

Nicely understated cycle. Looks really good.

Thanks,
I knew I chose that colour for a reason! The finish is actually a powder coat but one of the fancy metallic two coat colours, it looks far nicer to me than most powder jobs. I may well send it to Jacksons or Argos for a proper finish next winter but right now I just wanted it built up and ridden.

Very nice, really love that wishbone stay. :)

I believe Lloyd was one of the few/only builders happy to polish and chrome 753, so could be.

Powder coating was done locally by carlisle powder coating (off newtown road), they are happy to do bikes and apparently get them through quite often. I was really pleased with the finish looks more like paint and not as 'plastic' as most powder finishes. Hes not great at masking, I had to neaten up some of the joins with the chrome but for £40 I can't complain :)
