Ugh, those mudguard stays need seriously shortening, I've seen them do folk a real mischief.

They are perfectly OK - Ive checked the clearances on the front guard/pedals, Im glad to see rather look at the 'build' you focus (to my mind) on a pointless detail. Thank you. :facepalm:

Nice job, well done Spokesmann! And summers on it's way too, what more can you ask for :D


p.s. is there a RBOTM thread or something similiar? It'll be great to check out more bikes like this one.



Later this month I would think.

That is lovely. My compliments on a superb finish. Off to a classic ride today. Will take lots of pics of concourse comp and start add to moreton meander thread.

The sunshine suits it!

Your reply shows you don't see the point, I was drawing your attention to a safety issue. There is much too much stay above the mudguard fitting (looks at least an inch) - simply put too much stay above the guard which can do damage to human flesh!

Most old timers would point this out.

Perhaps you're too thick skinned for it to be a problem.

Roadking.

Having been riding for nearly 40 years, your point has not escaped me, don't talk to me as if I came down with yesterday's shower. They stays stay. End of. Period. Thank you for your concern though.

Do not feed the troll :)

Some people seem intent on a crusade to enlighten us all with their one dimensional negativity.

The old forum adage, when you've crossed the line of constructive criticism, 'if you've not got anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all' :)

I was merely pointing out a safety concern. Crusade, suggest you look that word up in dictionary.

Troll? Suggest you indulge yourself in some self reflection.
