Looks good - like the paintwork on the frame as well. :)

What Mudguards are those?

Cheers :)

Very nice bike! My compliments! It is very close to a touring bike I would like to build in the future. I will surely use it as reference!

Looks great, nice job. A lot better than its original condition!

What BB and axle length have you used with the TA cranks? I've just acquired a pair to put on my '58 Pennine and not sure what to do. Mind you, I'll be using them for a double and you've got triple.

I used an asymmetrical phil wood with campy taper. 115-118 works for a double, 120-121 for a triple

I like that a lot!

Perhaps you could have left the shifters down by your feet instead of putting them on the bar ends though! :D

Thanks for that. I was thinking around those lengths would be right but needed a confirmation from someone that's done it! I've actually sourced a possible supply for a couple of TA axles and cups so might be able to fit the real thing in due course.

You're welcome.

As an update I took the bike out on Saturday to a wedding, as the wedding was for a cyclist couple and they wanted a group ride to the ceremony. As the reception ended a few of us decided to take a bottle of expensive burbon and climb the nearest peak to watch the sunset.

This is Hill 88, a peak in the Marin Headlands. Its just shy of 1000' at the peak in about a mile, starting at sea level. At the top there are the remnants of a former radar station for the nearby by Nike SAM site and gun turret.
