Ok thought it was about time I entered one of my bikes, so here goes. Build thread in my signature.


If you're not carefull you'll get yourself a reputation for rather lovely and tastefull builds Col. :lol:

Another nice job there.:wink:


I try my best :lol:. I fear it may go unnoticed amongst some of the other lovely bikes up this month, i'm liking Dossa's 704XT a lot.

The frame finish is just a lacquer coat applied over the brushed steel, very simply but beautiful. I have done this to a few frames and the effect always draws a comment, I have also used coloured lacquer, this gives a stunning effect in the sunlight.
Have a look at my old GT Tequestra single speed.


Have you re-finished the Jamis yourself then?

No, she is original. I have since been informed that the finish could be brushed nickle plate under a lacquer coat.

som many great bikes and dogs, gaaah, which one to vote for?

wish I could give points EVSC style, e.g. 12 and 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 instead of just one vote to one bike!
