Karl,

When its a choice of Black or nothing, black is just fine. Are you sure you want to let them go?

As for Carlton nuts, there 5 on the bike, 2 x front, 2x rear, 1x seat bolt. All have significant rust, chrome lifting ect. The rear ones have lost their red "C" inserts. :cry:

Really appreciate you looking for all these, not looking for karma though....unless you are feeling very generous :roll:

Dave

The 600 is some absolutely beautiful kit 8)

And as for fixies, I don't like it when people stick really thin risers on and make it all as bright as possible with those stupid deep rims. But if it's done to make it look more like a track bike sort of thing it's ok, but then I may be biased :lol:

Not looking for a mirror finish shine, far to pretentious, and out of keeping. Only pro's and show bike go that far.

Is that a refurb or replacement? Looks great. I think a mirror shine usually looks quite good on the smaller parts, like stems and cranks etc., but when it's on a whole frame it can overwhelming.
