Aren't you glad you opted to do this rather than the rat look from the start of the thread. great job, and impressive paint. So good it's allowed in the kitchen :)

Yeah, you aren't the first to say that!

I am currently on the lookout for a nice Campagnolo 47 tooth chainring.... In silver!

The blue chainring looks quite neat...........For Carlton's, Lagoon Blue and white make a nice Combo. Thinking about doing my Flyer in white with blue panels :D

Thanks Shaun.

I must admit, it certainly attracts comments / attention. There are more haters than lovers though... To me it looks alright, a bit trick in fact but I also think it will look good with a slightly bigger version in silver.

If you google Campagnolo BMX you will see where I got the inspiration from!

How's your OLN and chainline Theoldfm? Have you had to make any adjustments in that area? Is that a freewheel?
