Finally finished with this after pottering for a couple of years. Made by a chap called Don Brooks, who made around 300 bikes in his career, and never really on a commercial basis.
Came to me via eBay, the original owner is now in New Zealand and has requested that I sell it to him if I ever decide to let it go.

The frame is a mixture of SLX and SL and the ride quality is amazing.
Running gear is all Dura Ace 7400-7410, including the stem (!)

Looking at the picture, it looks like the bars might need to be tilted down - but they're comfortable as they are.

No idea actually! Just came like that, when I got the wheels (second hand).

I mean, um, don't you know about the aero potential of having one red spoke?

So you can find the valve. It'd be invisible otherwise, y'see?

Is that really it? It would make sense, but why not on the front? I thought that's what tyre logos were for...
