Well I've got 2 welders with me, and my mate Dave and we all think it's a bit sloppy.

I Googled 'hand welded aluminium frame earlier' and the first few images of such all looked pretty tidy to me. But we'll have to agree to disagree, it's probably why I only ride nicely welded steel frames.

I'm very tempted by it. It really does do something for me for some reason.

Did you get it? I was sorely tempted myself, I've discovered that obscure bikes with a British connection seems to be my thing!

I thought you might be the bidder.

Right, start a build thread as soon as it arrives! I'll sign up for it even if no one else does :lol:. I think it's a beautiful bike......in an ugly sort of way.
