A beautiful frame, anxious as I'm sure you are to see it built up.

Best,

Build plan sounds great! Wasn't sure about the choice of black components I think silver would be much more fitting but the list is (pleasingly) different.

What about finishing kit? Red cables? tape colour? saddle colour?

Nice colour, nice finish, prefer cable mounts on the headtube and the cable routing for the rear mech.

But would be disappointed with the blow holes in the rear triangle brazing, it would nark on me continually.

Me too Paul! That's the thing with Jacksons... they always seem to get things not 100% perfect...

That's why I'm a Woodrup man all the way...

Unfortunately there are no good Woodrup/Birthday gags!

Look forward to seeing build progress though... 8)
