Wow thank you very much for positive comments!
As this was my first British bike restoration so I wasn't sure but I am glad to know that other people like it!
I like your home made stickers, I may have to copy you as I have wanted 'the pink one' for sometime now. Where did you get the headset from, is it new? I'm not all that happy with the satin finish on my new headset on my explorer- I want a chrome one like yours. Good stuff. Oh who did the paint/powder coat?
The sheet I used is found in ebay, '10 x A4 PVC/ Vinyl, plastic Laser Labels.,Waterproof 'http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0487054268
Colour matching is a bit of pain unless your PC and printer are well colour calibrated - I made it after 7 trials.
The headset is from the parts bike - luckily the previous owner didn't change the original parts so it was still there.
Needed lots of time for polishing, though.
The paint was done by Armourtex in Hackney, London.http://www.armourtexltd.co.uk/
They are extremely popular among fixed gear bike guys.http://www.lfgss.com/thread17439.html
I used them once before and I was very satisfied with the quality and durability at affordable cost.
I love your collection of great bikes built with nice attention to detail.
I might try build fixed gear next time.
