that's a beaut! - same colour frame as mine (buying a camera today so better pictures!)
It's really interesting seeing the same base frame being built up in two different ways - yours look seriously stylish and more age appropriate and definately more shiny! 8)

That looks great - how do you get on with adjusting those wheels (spokes) when you need to? Is it the same procedure as for "normal" 32 or 36 spoke wheels?

Same procedure but uses hidden nipples so the tyres or tubs/singles have to come off....

Actually easier to true due to the inherent stiffness of the deeo section alloy rims- till you bend the rim itself that is....... :(
