Should hopefully have some pics up in a few weeks :D

Taken a bit of a chance with the re enamel, chosen metallic black with three bands towards the top of the seat tube, not really in keeping with the age of the frame but with all the modern components thought it might all come together

Information on Youngs has just been added to Classic Lightweights website -

I had always wondered where Grandini etc. frames came from.

Really coming along. I am using the same brakes on my road bike, and they are an absolute delight. Both to look at and to use.
Good luck with the build, I'm looking forward to see the finished result.
