A work in progress (needs new tyres and a braze on front mech) but looking quite tasty, even if I do say so myself.
Sorry for the crappy photos, I might take it up to the river tomorrow for some proper photos.

That is another sweet bike! and with some 'period' colour tyres it will look spot on 8)

Yep, Tel has suggested some Michelin 'Dynamics', as a cheaper alternative to Paselas. I think anything with Tan will look lovely on it.

I got very lucky on the group and the frame (few bits of rust, but mostly on chainstay) and with saddle, stem and bars I already had it's cost under £300 to build which I think is pretty good!

£300 is one hell of a good deal so far.
No offence to your photos but it really deserves some good shots sometime :lol:

Glad you think so and I'm not just kidding myself! Proper photos are on there way, when I have the full group on there and those tyres (ordering now!)
Frame was £80, group was £225 (including wheels!) so I'm pleased.

As someone who lived in Leeds for 7 years, it's quite nice to own a Bob Jackson. One thing I was wondering about is that it has a 'Renovated by Bob Jackson' sticker on, so does that mean it's one they've done work on and applied decals to rather than one of their own frames?
