here is my daily steed :)
Bought frame and fork of e bay many years ago because i liked the look of it with the rust and all but didn't really know what to do with it so it just sat in my garage for ages until i had some inspiration and built it into this!
Really happy with it, it rides real nice.
I didnt think the BB would last but it seems really strong!

strange how some of us enjoy riding proper steel bikes , and its great fun when you can cruise past a more modern machine with ease .

nice to see

I have often though about a similar project, nice to have something you can just take out to use and enjoy without worry. I also like the look, and the frame has nice lugs.
