Sounds like you had a great time.
You seen a good chunk in a short time.
Came through Brora yesterday and spent the night near Aviemore, at Advie outside Grantown-on-Spey and heading to Rothiemurchus just now on the 1X1.

Hopefully my Mercian KOM will be home next week. :)
Lugs are lined and I have kept the little hearts in the lugs just lined rather than fill them which is the normal procedure. I debated over this for a while though as I just thought it suited the colours better. head tube lugged in black. Another coat of clear to seal it all in and soon will be getting built back up.

Very nice.
Have had some paint decisions of my own this week. Earlier in the year I was cleaning my Saffron and found what I thought was a paint crack. Turned out it was a tube crack. Phoned the builder and find out I’ve the dubious honour of being the first person to destroy one of his frames! In his defence it didn’t go at a join but round about where the butting on the seat tube stops.
Frame has been with them for tube replacement for a few months and I got the call this week to say it’s bsck together.
Had the option of the original colour or a new choice and went for a wee change. It’s off to paint next week and should hopefully be back soon.

When you sell a retro bike frame for £25, get a message to say it's arrived safely, then see it listed on ebay the same day at £180 :lol: :facepalm:
Talk about "Retro tax" :roll:

No Rob, someone from a Farcebook group, I won't be selling to him again.
It needed the suspension sorting (rear shock and headshock) and I have neither the time or inclination to do it, and it would cost ££ to have someone else do it. I've seen complete working bikes sell for way less than the new asking price for the frame :lol:
