Love it, really nice! Prefer look of new bar though Midges are really comfy too.

I had a 1991 Dawes Horizon done in same RAL code a couple of years back:

but without the (lovely!) lug detailing on yours! :)

I have made around 1000kms with this bike and starting to have paint chips already. When i can i will strip the paint again and have it copper plated. I will do the lug lining again but this time in white.

The fenderline is not quite there yet. Need to make a small change on the fork daruma and then realign both fenders.

Looking very nice, an inspirational build.

Are the fenders VO, I was considering these for my Allin winter project?
