It is a tan coloured Charge Spoon. And I am putting tan bar tap on as well. I thought I might have to go back to black when I changed the frame colour, but I have fitted the seat and it looks really good. :D

More photo's tomorrow!

It 's actually a powder-coat. LSN in Castleford did the job. I got them from the list on here! £40 to strip and powder-coat as long as you can drop it off to them. The colour is Candy Blue.

The decals are from eBay (Carlton) and Lloyds (Reynolds)

Glad everyone seems to like it. :D

Why is there a fork decal on the head tube?

Shaun


I have the 531 decals on the forks and just thought the headtube needed something more colourful than just the Carlton badge. I have put the other one at the base of the seat tube! :D


Personally I would not have done this. It looks fine though and its your machine. Look forward to seeing the completed build.

Headset fitted properly this morning and a set of wheels thrown on for the pics! Beginning to get a feel for the final look.

That's it until next weekend now, work to do... :(

Here she is. Light was fading, so just a few quick photo's.

I'll take some better ones tomorrow.

Still need to tune the gears and align the brakes properly so no ride report, but I have next week off so should get out for a ride or two then.

Only problem is I enjoyed building this so much I want to do another one now! :mrgreen:

Nice job there. I bet you are chuffed to bits.
