today's update

Stem was badly pitted so thanks to Volkswagen Brilliant Orange, its sorted to the best of my abilities and patience.

Grey primer covers the ick around the rear stays and a bit of lacquer to make it shine.

I plan to fit modern Continentals to make it a rider or might save up for some period correct Panaracer Timbuk II

Gorgeous frame, cool angles, light years ahead of the competition.

Very nice bike, I've always hankered after a Brodie but I think I'm starting to be won over by these. 8)
